Even though a bunch of racists and derpburgers are trying to boycott Rogue One, there’s little that will stymie the film’s momentum. Early reaction from the world premiere last Saturday have been very positive. Critics and other moviegoers in attendance are saying Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is a good film, and even better than The Force Awakens.
ROGUE ONE had me from the opening to the very end. Incredible action mixed with a script fans are going to love. Going to make people happy.

The last time I loved a Star Wars movie as much as I loved #RogueOne, it was 1977.

I expected it to be funny. I didn't expect to be choked up. Moments of true bravery, and some speeches we need right now. #RogueOne

To keep you hungry for that Star Wars fix this week, a few new clips from the movie have showed up online.
First off, here’s Felicity Jones’ character, Jyn Erso, getting some help from the rebels.
It doesn’t go as expected.
Here’s another clip of the film featuring some wonky piloting by our rebel heroes.
In this clip are Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), K-2SO (Alan Tudyk), Baze Malbus (Jiang Wen), and Bodhi Rook (Riz Ahmed).
Andy finally, here’s the part of the movie where they say the name of the movie, because we always need one of those scenes in a movie.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is out on Friday. May the hype be with you.[via The Playlist]
