International Trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

A new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story broke just last week attached to the Olympic Games, but as luck would have it we are also being treated to a new International trailer for the film only days later.  This trailer offers up a few additional bits of footage not seen previously, including one new plot detail.  

The Rebels learn of the impending Imperial weapons test by intercepting a coded transmission sent by Jyn Erso’s father, Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen).  It had been suggested previously that Galen is a scientist who worked for the Empire and helped them build the Death Star, only to feel guilt afterwards about the weapon he created.

With the summer season coming to a close it wouldn’t be surprising to see Disney/Lucasfilm start up their advertising push for what is sure to be a massive release of the film.  I’m very curious to see how this movie performs at the box office because although it is still a Star Wars movie, it’s the first stand alone feature separate from the main saga and the look/tone of the movie appears to be unlike any of the other films in the franchise.  However, there’s still a long way to go between now and December 16.  Let me know your thoughts on the trailer in the discussion board below.
