Based on the last few Star Wars movies, this won’t even be worth pirating.
I guess they’re dropping the more recent naming convention for spinoff movies. Probably for the best, “ROGUE SQUADRON: A STAR WARS STORY” would have been a dumb title.
Wow, great little trailer in there. I’m excited to see a movie made by a director who’s life’s mission has been to make a movie about this specific subject matter like this.
Video for the BBS:
Patty Jenkins did great with Wonder Woman; while I’m against giving Disney my money if I can help it, I still hope she can repeat her success.
Props to her thick skin as well, as the misogynists will, again, be out in full force over this directing choice.
Best of luck to her.
Of course the whiny, self-absorbed fanboys are gonna bitch and moan, throw tantrums and try to sabotage the film before it even comes out; that’s what they do because it’s the only thing they are any good at.
That’s boss! I’ve actually enjoyed the more “side story” movies of the past few years than the trilogy movies. So, I’ll be looking forward to this!
Is this based on the book trilogy featuring Wedge Antilles?? Moar Wedge!
Well - no one will ever watch an action movie starring a woman or directed by one.
It’s like these dudes have never even heard of the Alien franchise. Half of them were born after that came out in 1979.
Fun fact which I’m sure you already knew; the character of ‘Ripley’ was originally meant to be a guy.
That would have been completely unbelievable.
If you’re going to make yet another installment crammed in between the events of the existing movies you might as well use a Wedge to do it.
I remember seeing Dark Star in the theater years ago - a student film by Carpenter and O’Bannon - O’Bannon used the comic beach ball alien as a starting point for Alien.
Just say that it’s available on Amazon to stream for $1.99. I’ll have to give it a look.
Star Wars: Rogue Squadron
Same. The trilogy was atrocious but the side stories were good. At what point do we hit peak star wars though?
Damnit. Take your like
Personally, I found the standalone SW movies to be perfectly acceptable. Rogue One was outright good, and while Solo was not the greatest movie, it was a damn sight better than any of the sequel trilogy movies, and way better than the Star Wars: Clone Wars movie.
