No Bothans dies to bring us this – but the latest Rogue One trailer is truly a masterclass in how to cut a trailer. Take a look:
Known as the “Payoff Trailer” (which is a slight understatement), it was released on Oct 13 in tandem with the official one sheet for Singapore, seen in all its glory below. It’s a great look at the new cast of the movie, with Felicity Jones front and centre. Check out what’s looming over her shoulder – no, her other shoulder.
If you’re still not sure what all this about after watching the trailer, the folks at Disney have some help for you:
From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” an all-new epic adventure. 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 hits cinemas in Singapore on Dec 15.
