With the premiere of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” less than a week away, TV spots for the standalone film are coming thick and fast. The latest focuses on the IMAX version, and the “beautiful” destructive force of the Empire’s new superweapon.
The 36-scond promo sets the scene for the “Rogue One” in the chaos following the collapse of the Old Republic and the emergence of the Galactic Empire, before switching to the Death Star weapons test seen in previous trailers. Imperial Director Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn) describes this “beautiful.” Just wait until he sees it in IMAX 3D!
Set just prior to the events of 1977’s “Star Wars,” the film follows a ragtag group of Rebels who undertake a dangerous mission to steal the design plans for the Galactic Empire’s new planet-destroying superweapon, the Death Star.
Directed by Gareth Edwards (“Godzilla,” “Monsters”) from a script by Gary Whitta and Chris Weitz, “Rogue One” stars Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Donnie Yen, Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna and Riz Ahmed. “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” opens Dec. 15 in the United Kingdom and Dec. 16 in the United States.
