This just in from Verizon:

As part of their collaboration with the highly anticipated film “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” Verizon invites consumers to view Rogue One™: Recon – A Star Wars™ 360 created by Lucasfilm’s ILMxLAB. The in-store content is a short, immersive 360 experience available exclusively at 1,400 Verizon stores across the country on Samsung Gear VR Headsets starting today, Thursday, Nov. 10, until Sunday, Nov. 13.

As an everyday X-wing pilot flying for the Rebellion, fans will be immersed in the vastness of space with only their R2 unit and wingman by their side. To avoid any spoilers, we can only say that the surprise ending is made for the big screen. It will be released widely on Verizon’s Facebook page Nov. 14.

In addition, the latest VR headset from Google – the Daydream View (available for sale online and in Verizon stores starting Nov. 10) – offers an opportunity to experience an interactive game/trailer for “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” (an upcoming movie based on the world of Harry Potter, out Nov. 18).

I’m really looking forward to going to see “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” next week. I’ve been looking forward to it for a long time!

If you end up checking out these in-store demos, let me know what you think.
