by James Murphy

STAR WARS ROGUE ONE FINAL TRAILER GOES WELL AND TRULY VIRAL!

It’s good. Like seriously good. I tell you folks, it’s gonna be tremendous. Maybe even the best Star Wars ever. Palpatine and Vader: they’re gonna build a Battle Station and it’s gonna keep all those Rebels out of the civilised systems. Now, we have been monitoring this film’s progress from the first glimpses.

 

But I will just restate and reaffirm quite how awesome this new trailer makes the movie look and on what grounds..

flick

 

i.) Use of the aesthetic of the ‘old’ Star Wars, whilst creating organic and original spins therein

ii.) Puts the ‘war’ back in Star Wars: this LOOKS, FEELS, PLAYS like a simple WW2 picture, transferred to space. 

iii.) The cast is sheer class and power and even the droids have a presence that fills the screen.

iv.) Does what the Prequels should have done: takes us to a world JUST before the original trilogy and injects grit without losing all hope or fun. 

v.) Braver, Bolder, Bigger looking than The Force Awakens: you won’t even notice the absence of Harrison Ford!

vi.) Felicity Jones: how do we love thee? Let us count the ways…

vii.) VADER! He is in there but is being used SPARINGLY and thereby more..EFFECTIVELY!

December cannot come soon enough. This is a film for the fans but also one that might, just might, ignite the same levels of interest for outsiders as the ‘originals’ did back in the 70s/80s. Something for everyone, I think? Bar is insanely high but on this evidence alone, I’d be very surprised if viewers end up disappointed..
