Welcome to the dark side of the force, bitch. The March 10 episode of Fox’s The O.C. should send real-life Seth Brodys into geek heaven, as it will feature the world premiere of the trailer for Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith. Immediately after the show, the two-minute clip will become available to members of the Hyperspace fan club at starwars.com and to AOL subscribers and Moviefone.com visitors. The trailer for the final Star Wars feature hits movie screens the following day, attached to corporate sibling Twentieth Century Fox’s new computer-animated feature Robots. The studio releases Sith on May 19.

As if next week’s O.C. weren’t already special enough, it will also showcase five tracks from Beck’s new album, Guero. Alas, Beck won’t be performing at the Bait Shop.
