Default Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Teaser trailer has dropped:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wji-BZ0oCwg

It's cool to be getting this film and I have faith in Edwards (even if Godzilla was so-so), the teaser is sort of a mixed bag for me tho, in the sense that it throws you in and out of the Star Wars Universe, case in point - Forest Whitaker is just someone I associate with Battlefield Earth and Star Trek and the far eastern martial arts are out of place.

Overall though, I like it.

I see that this is what Disney will be cranking out under the Star Wars label from now till infinity: one flick after another of Mary Sue fan fiction.

Can't wait to miss it.

Downton Abbey Wars, replete with wise black man trope

Is it me or does this not look far better than the garbage they served up in the last one?

It's great to see Twitter's already dived into the rabbit-hole of 'if you don't think this is BRILLIANT you're a racist/sexist/whatever manbaby'.

To be honest I'm amazed anyone has any opinion on this, it just feels like a few cut-scenes from a decent SW computer game. Even my daughters - who loved Force Awakens, dig Rey etc - were completely underwhelmed by it.

You joke, but I would totally watch a Downton Abbey/Star Wars crossover movie. That sounds amazing.

Marvel was clever to make many of its films into genre pieces so if this one can be either a Bourne/Bond type thriller or WWII with lasers film, or some combo of both, this could turn out better than expected.

There is the problem that we already knows what happens to the Empire's big weapon but if you don't worry about the real-world fad of extended cinematic universes this movie should be worth a ticket to be entertained for a few hours. There's roughly zero chance it will have the impact the first two Star Wars films had or to make any top 100 movie lists but that's okay.

I would watch Cockney Star Wars, with Michael Caine in his Get Carter trench coat

It might me being a misogynist prick, but I allready hate the female lead. I'm so tired of these uber masculine rebel females that know how to kick butt. I just don't buy that.

Forest Whittaker is a cool dude though. I wished he got the chance to do more roles like this. Ghost dog is one of my favourite movies.
