‘Star Wars Rogue One’ Trailer Gets Even Better When You Add the Beastie Boys — Watch

8 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

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.

Director Gareth Edwards discusses the meaning of the title for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

25 August 2016 1:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re just a few months away from the release of Disney and Lucasfilm’s first Star Wars anthology movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and during an interview with Empire Online, director Gareth Edwards has been discussing the meaning of the title.

“I’d been thinking about it,” states Edwards. “What does it mean? ‘Rogue One’ is a military call sign to some extent, but this is the first film that’s gone off-piste and is not part of the saga – or the Anakin story – so it’s the ‘rogue’ one, you know? It’s kind of describing [Jyn Erso] as well in a similar way. It has [all] these split, multiple meanings that made it feel like the right choice.”

Well, there goes my bet of it being a codename for Mads Mikkselsen’s Galen Erso…

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story: Alan Tudyk Talks K-2So's Backstory And Personality

22 August 2016 4:43 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Of course, as exciting as each new Star Wars movie is, we all know half the fun lies in the different kinds of non-human characters we'll get to see. As was revealed in weeks past, the big droid character to join the canon will be none other than K-2So, voice and performance captured by actor Alan Tudyk.

Speaking with StarWars.com, Tudyk discussed further details surrounding the droid's (who he calls Kaytoo) past, and his relationship with those around him. The character's specific origins aren't necessarily new -- they were revealed via an EW first look some week's back, but he also plants the details in the context of the Star Wars historical canon. He also talks about the droid's personality in greater detail.

"Kaytoo was formerly an Imperial droid, so he used to be on the other side. He was a security droid and then Cassian, Diego Luna’s character, »

Meet New Star Wars Droid K-2So in the Latest Rogue One Photos

22 August 2016 12:27 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, Empire Magazine revealed two new covers for their upcoming print issue featuring characters from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The first cover showed Jyn Erso and her team of Rebels, while the second offered a closer look at the main villain, Ben Mendelsohn's Director Orson Krennic. The publication promised a new subscribers' cover debuting on Monday, and, true to their word, that image has been revealed, featuring none other than the new droid, K-2So.

K-2So was actually featured on the first Empire magazine cover, seen towering over Jyn Erso and the rest of her Rebel team, but this image gives us a much closer look at this "military enforcer droid," which is voiced and performed in motion capture by Alan Tudyk. This subscribers cover is designed as a "technical drawing" for K-2So, and at the bottom it says this is a "Classified Document" of the Imperial Army. »

Empire’s Rogue One Subscriber Cover Spotlights Alan Tudyk’s Towering Droid

22 August 2016 9:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Completing its hat-trick of cover reveals, Empire Magazine has today lifted the lid on its minimalist subscriber cover for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which places Alan Tudyk’s towering droid K-2So (Aka Kaytoo) front and center.

Following up on those one-sheets that highlighted both the light and dark side of the Force – not to mention a new image from earlier today that focused on Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) and Captain Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) – this latest Rogue One nugget presents the highly-classified schematics for Tudyk’s military enforcer droid, who has already struck a chord with the Star Wars faithful thanks to the film’s trailers.

Fighting for the same cause as Jyn Erso and her “pack of misfits,” it’ll be interesting to discover whether Kaytoo can go on to become the “new Bb-8” of this rebooted Star Wars universe.

Well find out on December 16, when Jones, »

The publication also teased that a second cover image would debut today, with a third arriving on Monday. True to their word, Empire has unveiled a new cover, featuring Ben Mendelsohn's Director Orson Krennic along with some of his Deathtroopers.

It isn't known who will be featured on the third Empire cover, but we'll bring you that image as soon as it surfaces.
