After watching the first teaser for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” audiences were pretty pumped for the spin-off action film. Then the first trailer arrived and all hell broke loose (in a good way). But now, excitement for the film is on another level, all thanks to the Beastie Boys.
Video editor and YouTuber Matthew Longua made a killer new remix trailer for “Rogue One,” but instead of using composer Alexandre Desplat’s music, he swapped it out for the song “Sabotage” by Beastie Boys. The result is amazing!
The song cues in after Jyn Erso’s (Felicity Jones) line “I rebel,” and instantly kicks the video into high gear, making the footage look even more badass, all while elevating the action sequences.

While his brother Tony Gilroy has grabbed headlines as the writer/director of “Michael Clayton” and as the longtime scribe of the ‘Jason Bourne‘ series, not to mention his high-profile role stepping in to save “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” Dan Gilroy made everyone sit up and pay attention with “Nightcrawler.” The crackling, darkly funny thriller […]

Rogue One: A Star Wars story is a film that certainly has quite the task ahead of it. Though the stakes aren't quite as high as they were with last year's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the film does have to accomplish a couple of key things. First, it has to be of a certain quality so that it doesn't make The Force Awakens look like a complete fluke, and second, it has to firmly establish itself as a unique beast from the main saga so that mainstream audiences will know what to expect from future anthology films.
With the mostly-positive response to the recent trailers, they seem to be on their way, but not all audiences are convinced, namely the Chinese audience. According to THR, Rogue One is currently facing a mixed response from the Chinese, mainly in regards to the casting of Donnie Yen and Jiang Wen. While »

Last week, during NBC's Olympic coverage, Lucasfilm debuted a new trailer for the highly-anticipated Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first Star Wars spin-off that is set to hit theaters nationwide December 16. With just under four months left until this new story set in a galaxy far, far away hits theaters, it remains to be seen how much more footage will be unveiled, but today we have the latest Empire Magazine cover. This image features four of the spin-off's human stars, plus the latest lovable droid in the Star Wars Universe.
This Empire cover features a closer look at Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), Bodhi Rook (Riz Ahmed), Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), Baze Malbus (Wiang Jen) and Chirrut Imwe (Donnie Yen). The cover also features another look at the droid K-2So, voiced and performed through motion capture by Alan Tudyk. This cover image also puts into perspective just how »

This edition of The Week in Star Wars brings you the brand new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story as well as some casting rumours for young Lando in Han Solo: A Star Wars Story and the latest on Star Wars Rebels season three…
Let’s kick things off this week with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and following a teaser earlier in the week the brand new trailer for the movie dropped on Thursday evening. Not only did it give us a little more action and a look at some new characters, but it also gave our first look (at the back of his head at least) of Darth Vader. You can read the reaction from the Flickering Myth writers here…
…Something interesting to come from the trailer, »

Force theology has got a bit hazy, Star Destroyers may have learned to hide, and Darth is definitely in the house
Will Rogue One: A Star Wars Story regret messing with the Force?
Gareth Edwards’ debut Star Wars movie has been plagued by reports of reshoots and trouble in the edit suite, with Tony Gilroy parachuted in from the Bourne saga to oversee the final cut. And the pressure is on Disney and Lucasfilm to make sure the saga’s first ever spin-off instalment (don’t call it a prequel) repeats the barnstorming success of The Force Awakens at the global box office. So can the new trailer, first aired last night in the Us during coverage of the Olympics, successfully negotiate the asteroid field of uncertainty surrounding the movie? Or will it crash and burn like an over-confident Phantom Menace podracer? Here are five takeaways from our latest glimpse »

Back in July it was reported that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was having major reshoots done and that Tony Gilroy would be assisting Edwards on set, just as he had done with Godzilla. And then earlier this month, we caught wind that Gilroy was also supervising the edit of the movie, further hinting that Edwards was losing control.
Well eagle eyed viewers of the trailer released yesterday have noted that Gilroy has been given a screenwriters credit on the movie along with writer Chris Weitz.

This would suggest that Gilroy has had a big infulenence on the story for Rogue One, enough of an impact for the Writers Guild of America (WGA) to award him a screenwriting credit. For those who don’t know how it works, the WGA look at all »

All eyes in the sporting world are currently directed toward South America, where Brazil is hosting this year’s Olympics. If you’ve been keeping track of the Rio Games from the off, you’ve likely clocked eyes on the fleeting teaser for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
It signalled a fresh batch of high-resolution images, too, and both info dumps were designed to drum up excitement for the latest – and potentially greatest – trailer for Gareth Edwards’ Anthology film.
Rooted in the time period between Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, Rogue One chronicles the death-defying journey of Felicity Jones’ vigilante Jyn Erso who, along with a crew of fellow Rebel outlaws, band together to nick blueprints for the Empire’s most fearsome weapon yet: the Death Star.

It was a rather remarkable summer for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.” The seemingly impossible-to-do-wrong Lucasfilm had to navigate a full blown crisis when word emerged that extensive reshoots were scheduled for the franchise’s first spinoff, with Tony Gilroy and Simon Crane brought in to help with shooting. But looking to counter the bad […]

Now that Alden Ehrenreich has officially been cast as Han Solo in the iconic “Star Wars” character’s standalone film, other key characters need to come onboard as well. Chief among these, according to TheWrap, is the young Lando Calrissian — Solo’s friend/traitor/friend again originally played by Billy Dee Williams in “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi.” Asked for comment, Ehrenreich reportedly responded with a mirthless chuckle (note: not really).
The world of “Star Wars” has only expanded since Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012; in addition to a new trilogy led by last year’s “The Force Awakens,” a host of spinoffs and character-specific films are in the works as well. “Rogue One” arrives first, while the untitled project focusing on Solo’s early years is perhaps the most eagerly anticipated. »

Brazil is currently playing host to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and as one of the biggest events on the sporting calendar, marketing companies and PR bigwigs are beginning to fire on all cylinders to capitalize on the level of global attention directed at the Summer Games.
It may not attract the same attention as, say, the annual Super Bowl for those out to see the latest movie trailers, but in a few hours’ time, Star Wars fans will be tuning in to catch the latest peek at Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Here's the official synopsis for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story from Disney and Lucasfilm. Perhaps the most interesting thing is the fact that Gareth Edwards is still listed as the sole director, despite the fact that Tony Gilroy (The Bourne Legacy, Michael Clayton) directed five weeks of reshoots (which were rumored to change the ending) and is currently taking the lead in the editor's room, though Edwards does have some input. On the surface, the pairing appears to be collaborative, especially when one considers the fact that Gilroy previously assisted Edwards on Godzilla. In fact, Gilroy has a history of helping out troubled productions as he also assisted Frank Marshall (Kathleen Kennedy's husband) on 2002's The Bounre Identity after Marshall fired Doug Liman and took over post-production. From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an all-new epic adventure. »

This past weekend, Suicide Squad opened to roaring success. By enjoying a global same-day launch around the world, the Dceu movie that established two of Batman’s greatest rogues (Joker and Harley Quinn), and a whole slew of DC C-listers like Deadshot and Captain Boomerang, earned its fledgling shared universe an impressive $133.7 million in in the U.S., as well as $267 million worldwide. Presumably, there has been at least some back-slapping going on at the Warner Bros. lot in the aftermath.
Yet, if you simply listened to social media, comment sections, or especially critics, you’d be convinced there is something very wrong with Suicide Squad. And beyond the dismal reviews (it currently sits at 26 percent positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes), it has also »
Jason Bourne, 2016
Directed by Paul Greengrass.
After almost a decade off the grid, rogue assassin Jason Bourne must return to the dark intelligence conspiracy which created him when a face from his past reveals the black ops project has started once again…
You all know the story. Neither star Matt Damon nor director Paul Greengrass ever intended to make Jason Bourne. It was the sequel to a trilogy they had (largely) crafted together for many years neither intended to do without the other, or without a worthy reason. Tony Gilroy’s The Bourne Legacy attempted to expand outward a franchise without realise Bourne himself was the reason we watched, not the mythology, and finally Damon & Greengrass, in the post-Edward Snowden landscape of global surveillance, hipster young geniuses becoming profligate in starting billion dollar companies, »

If you’ve been watching the Rio Olympics on television, you may have noticed a short TV spot for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. It didn’t feature any new footage, but it did reveal that a brand new trailer for Gareth Edwards’ film will be airing on Thursday during the games (which was then later on confirmed by the official Star Wars Twitter account).
We’re not sure yet what Disney plans to show off with the new footage, but it’s a smart move on their part to release another preview. There’s been a lot of bad press surrounding Rogue One lately, what with news that Tony Gilroy has had to step in for Edwards and supervise the reshoots and most of the edits. It’s unclear how much control he »

We are only four short months away from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story finally hitting theaters, but strangely enough, we have yet to get a full-length movie trailer for the film. This is going to be the first ever Star Wars spinoff movie, of which Disney has many planned, so it is strange that they haven't already hit the marketing really hard. However, the wait for that trailer just got very short, as we know for sure that we are getting a new Rogue One trailer this Thursday during the Olympics.
During the Olympic Games on Sunday, a new TV spot for Star Wars: Rogue One was shown, announcing that a new trailer for Rogue One will be airing during the games on Thursday. Even though the TV spot hasn't yet hit the web, the official Star Wars Twitter account did confirm that the trailer is in fact on the way. »
The Week in Star Wars is back – and it’s another bumper edition. We’ve got the latest on production issues for Rogue One, a possible TV series, a rumoured Han Solo movie and more…
We’ll kick things off this week with more news on production issues for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story [which got its first TV spot that you can watch here]. You may recall there was a lot of rumours a couple of months ago [read all about that here], and now The Hollywood Reporter are saying Tony Gilroy – was brought on by Disney during the reshoots earlier this year (which he had done for Edwards on Godzilla) – is supervising the edit of the movie. Edwards is still involved in post-production, with the site’s source reportedly stating that: “There are not two separate editing rooms; they are all in there with their ideas. Tony’s a strong force, but they’re all working together.” Now, its not uncommon for directors »

Recently I wrote the following statement about film franchises in my review for Star Trek Beyond:
Franchises are whores. They always have been—painted trollops far more interested in money than meaning. Any amount of love or passion obtained for a franchise film is a coincidental by-product of a business venture engineered to make a return on investment.
It feels like a good place to start this column.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was the film I was most looking forward to this year. A Star Wars movie rooted in the world of the original trilogy but shedding all that Skywalker melodrama that the primary Episodic adventures is so focused on. I love the idea of Star Wars movies that carve out new creative territory. Whether you loved The Force Awakens or loathed it, »
