Join the Rebellion in the new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer!

08.11.2016

With a good decade or more separating each of the three (so far) STAR WARS trilogies, it still feels a little unreal that we'll be sitting down for a brand new STAR WARS film each and every year for the foreseeable future. Interspersed between the main saga installments will be standalone stories set in the STAR WARS universe, the first of which will be Gareth Edwards' ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY which will show us just how those Rebel's stole the plans for the first Death Star. We've been anticipating a new ROGUE ONE trailer for a while now, and not only is it finally here, but it's brought a certain Dark Lord of the Sith along with it.

An official synopsis for ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY:

In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY is set for a December 16, 2016 release.

Not bad....but certainly not great

I liked it, but there wasn't any one thing that grabbed me and made me say "holy shit!" I dig the setting, I will say that. I'm actually very impressed with that part. HOWEVER, the Darth Vader reveal had the opposite effect for me. I think that was something that should have been saved for the last quarter of the movie so you'd have to buy a ticket to appreciate the reveal. I'm picky about too much being shown in trailers, and that was a big reveal. So really, nothing is left to look

I'm giving the lead female a chance so she better deliver.

Not too excited yet....

Honestly, as much as I love the whole "space western" vibe we get from Han Solo and this female character, I've never watched Star Wars for the spaceships or space battles. I watch Star Wars for the Jedi. As a kid, the idea that a character had magical abilities and carried a lightsaber was just sooooo cool. I never really cared for any of the other parts of the story; mostly anything related to the Jedi philosophy and its battle with Sith. There are a ton of space adventure movies out there,

I never really cared for any of the other parts of the story; mostly anything related to the Jedi philosophy and its battle with Sith. There are a ton of space adventure movies out there, but I gravitate to the struggle of the Jedi vs Sith. So, the only person I'm interested in is Donnie Yen's character and what he brings to story. In this latest trailer, his line delivery seems wooden. If he can channel the charisma and badassery that he had in Blade 2, I'll be happy.

I can't stop watching this trailer. I'm really hoping the movie can deliver on this but just to echo what some others have pointed it, Edwards does have an issue fostering strong performances from his actors. With the exception of Bryan Cranston, everyone was stale in Godzilla, even Ken Watanabe. And Monsters was watching two people bitch at each other for an hour and half. Even though I liked both of those films, complaints aside, I hope the characters don't end up being card board cut

The Phantom Menace

Nothing about this trailer is engaging. I think this film is going to be a huge disappointment and if the reshoots didn't worry you, this trailer sure should. Great idea, but looks as poorly executed as episodes 1-3

Oh yeah, this movie looks EXACTLY like the prequels. I mean all the practical effects completely match episodes 1,2,3 as well as the serious tone. Jar Jar was WAY TOO serious for my tastes, as well as the pod racing scene, and yoda jumping around like a fucking ninja, then picking up his cane to hobble again.

The similarities are STAGGERING!

Love all the new characters, but from the trailer alone, to me Felicity Jones looks like the weakest link.

Everything from start to finish in that trailer looks impressive. If the re-shots are included in this, then it looks like their hard work paid off.

Very good

looks very good. is exactly the kind of movie a want in star wars, you know WAR centric. My main issue is the milking of the original trilogy, i think is time to move foward and explore this universe with new stories and characters.

Looks beautiful and shiny but the lead actors seem very bland. I really dont feel any chemistry between them or screen presence...

I have no idea why any sane person would be interested in prequel Star Wars movies, especially one that follows the story of the theft of the deathstar plans, but even I have to admit that this looks so much better than the force awakens.

I know it's not possible in this day and age but I wish they could have kept Vader under wraps as an incredible surprise during the movie. Also appreciate that Vader sells shit, so the marketing team will make him a focus of their campaign.

Anyway, trailer is looking really good, excited for this!

Outstanding!

It's not the original three good, but for a side-story set in that universe . . . . That was pretty badass! Nice job Gareth. Looks like an IMAX showing on the first day for sure.

That POSTER though...

That poster is just AWFUL. Star Wars boasts some of, if not THE best movie posters of all time... the poster above is as bad as some of the often criticized X-Men posters... the initial concept of the death star as seen in the sky is cool, but its executed terribly...and the storm troopers are all a photoshoped mess... the lasers also stand out as fake and horrible. HOW IS THIS A REAL POSTER?!?!?!?!?!?

Cash grab

I still think the problem is - did this story need to be told? The whole driving arc of the original trilogy is Luke/Vader. Everything else came off it. Now we have no clear driving narrative, just a desire to make money. I didn't like Episode 7 much at all. Don't have much hope for anything following.

STAR WARS meets SAVING PRIVATE RYAN: I like it

I've watched that trailer twice, and I'm loving every second of it. Gonna be a hard wait until December 16th, but worth it.

This looks great from story to special effects to wardrobe. It has the look of the originals if George Lucas had more advanced technology to film them back when. I am pretty excited with all that has been shown so far.

Looks good! Definitely on my must see list for the holidays. My only concern is that Felicity Jones and Daisy Ridley look so much alike that people will get confused.
