It’s almost time. We’re just five days out from the debut of Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and after last night’s World Premiere at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, the initial reactions are well-beyond expectations. Today comes some new TV spots serving up some new looks at the film, but as with many films (including last year’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens), word on the street is that many of the shots in the trailers are absent from the final film, but that’s okay since the tone is captured. Check these out!
ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY follows a group of unlikely heroes in a time of conflict who 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 directed by Gareth Edwards and stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, with Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker. Kathleen Kennedy, Allison Shearmur and Simon Emanuel are producing, with John Knoll and Jason McGatlin serving as executive producers. The story is by John Knoll and Gary Whitta, and the screenplay is by Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy.
ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY arrives in theaters everywhere on December 16th in 3D, Real D 3D and IMAX 3D!
