The First ‘Rogue One’ Trailer Is Here
The first of what will probably be 8,000 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailers is here, and even though it’s a Gareth Edwards joint, it’s got so much The Force Awakens flavor, you can almost feel J.J. Abrams in the editing room, leaning on the lens flare button with his boner. There’s a woman who kicks ass, a black mentor, and a shitty-looking, practical effects explosion that will have rage nerds everywhere simultaneously excited for nostalgic crap while lamenting social progress being reflected in art. Wait, this shit doesn’t come out until December? Goddamnit, this is going to be a long, annoying year.
