5 Reasons Why the Trailer PROVES the Next Star Wars Is the 1st Great Film of the 21st Century (#3 Will ENTHRAL You)
So the mightiest minute and a half of cinematic footage since Lawrence decreed ‘No Prisoners!’ is out. It’s been greeted — rightly, justly, rapturously — by world nerdarinos. Typical is this analysis from Forbes’ nerd whisperer, Todd Kenreck —5 Reasons Why The 'Star Wars: Rogue One' Trailer Is So Important.
Yeah, nah. Kenreck’s way too verbose and in any case misses the point. In the spirit of concision, of less is more — of ramping my reads-to-views ratio up — here are 5 better reasons why this’ll be the finest film in 50 years.
1. Darth Vader
My Sweet Lord. He’s back!
2. AT-AT Walkers
Shitloads of them. Shooting shit up.
3. (Hopefully) Darth Vader inside an AT-AT Walker blasting rebel scum
4. Darth back on the Ventolin
5. The return of David Prowse
He’s a lovely, lovely man who hasn’t been treated well.
Key KFC: If Rogue One: A Star Wars Story tells us anything, it’s that Gareth Edwards is the next David Lean.
