A new trailer from the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story movie has been released these days on the Star Wars YouTube channel. As you most certainly already know, this is the most awaited spin-off of the most acclaimed sci-fi saga of all times, in which a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction.
This time it’s the real deal: we’re not talking about the well known fake trailer posted on YouTube a few months ago – and which we mentioned in this old post: welcome to the first official trailer of Quentin Tarantino‘s eighth effort, hoping it will be a masterpiece such as Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained undoubtely were. The trailer is out since yesterday on The Wenstein Company YouTube channel and this time we can say without any doubt that it is as authentic as Samuel L. Jackson face.
The upcoming movie, which is due for release on 25 December 2015 for US only and on January (hateful) 8 2016 in Europe, is a western mostly inspired by John Ford’s masterpieces of the past: it is therefore another homage, not only from an incredibly talentuos director to another but also from a nostalgic, yet very avant-garde, modern star to a milestone genre of the american movie history. The well-known Ford moments, cleverly mixed with Tarantino’s peculiar hilarious mood, are clear to be seen through every trailer scene, showing us the course of a horse-trained wagon and a mysterious group of strangers: both of them are clearly homages to 1939’s Stagecoach, one of the best Ford efforts and also one of the greatest western movies ever made. In the small pack of scenes unveiled by the trailer, we can easily recognize some old friend’s faces – which the Director already used in the past – such as Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Zoe Bell and Kurt Russell, tagged along with some “new entries” – yet experienced and very talented actors – such as Jennifer Jason Leigh and Walton Goggings.
We’ll leave you to the trailer, which also emphasize the fact that the film is being shot in “glorious 70mm”, just like (almost) any good old western masterpiece.
