Here’s the first clip from Rogue One: A Star Wars story, and it’s certainly action-packed. Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) and Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) battle it out in close quarters with some enemy stormtroopers in a clip full the exactly the kind of intensity we were hoping this more grungy take on the Star Wars universe would have. Forget all those scare stories about rewrites and reshoots (all blockbusters have rewrites and reshoots these days) – this looks freakin’ great.
And if you haven’t read the story about Rogue One Easter eggs we posted this morning you really should – you can find it here.
