Tag Archive: Rogue One international posters

We’ve said it before so we’ll repeat it:  If you aren’t someone who wants to know what the next Star Wars movie is about, walk away now.  Lucasfilm has proven with Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens and this year with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story that they figure fans won’t mind seeing a fair chunk of key scenes and plot developments via the movie trailers.  Would the “Chewie, we’re home,” line uttered by Harrison Ford carried greater weight had it not been previewed ad nauseam in months of previews?  Should we assume plenty of surprises have been left for the movie?

We can’t get enough of these glimpses of more Star Wars.  The latest preview for Rogue One released this Thanksgiving weekend give up several humorous scenes from the film.  Did the marketing folks think fans needed something lighthearted since the overall story of Rogue One is reportedly the darkest story yet, excepting possibly Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith?  This final trailer also shows some beautiful action sequences we have not yet seen.  This movie is going to be the biggest entertainment event of the year.  Just look at the detail in this village set below–every single thing about it tells you this is in the Star Wars universe.

Since Thanksgiving we’ve also seen both new international and IMAX posters (all below after the break) plus Alamo Drafthouse glassware available at select screenings.

But first, here is the final trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story:

The more that is revealed, the more Rogue One: A Star Wars Story appears that it may be good enough to take on the first two Star Wars films, Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back, if not at least edging Return of the Jedi or the The Force Awakens out of the third spot.  This week we learned that, unlike for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, George Lucas actually voiced his approval of components in Rogue One.  He wasn’t included in the story or dialogue, but gave his thumbs up on several art design concepts.  That’s thanks to director Gareth Edwards, who appears to be as big a Star Wars fan as the rest of us.

The only concern so far is the trend of releasing images reflecting something like 25% to 40% of the scenes from the film in a year’s worth of trailers leading up to the release.  It seems we know the entire story now, except for who lives and who dies by film’s end.  Of course, the only way to dodge this is to avoid all the trailers.

Even more footage was released this week not in another trailer, but via a behind the scenes featurette.  Plus, more TV spots have surfaced.  And if you haven’t figured out what the story is about already, director Edwards lays it out as clearly as can be at the beginning of the behind the scenes video.  Check it all out below, plus new international posters.

You probably won’t find any spoilers by way of new concepts if you have viewed the trailers released this year, but if you can’t get enough of footage from Rogue One (like us), them jump right in and see for yourself:

This is your chance to make a difference.  Rebellions are built on hope.  Are you with me?

No doubt Sgt. Jyn Erso’s call is going to resonate with a new generation of Star Wars fans this December when the clearly very different and grittier Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters as the eighth film in the franchise.  This time the story is set just before the events of A New Hope, before the rebels successfully blow up the Death Star.  Although we’d heard the final trailer was already out (watch it here if you missed it), a new TV spot is airing on U.S. screens (check it out below), although we’re not seeing much if anything new.

But, as happens from time to time, the best movie poster variants sometimes go overseas.  Check out these designs (above and below).
