A New Rogue One Trailer is Coming--On the Heels of Doctor Strange
We've talked a lot about Star Wars: Rogue One and Doctor Strange in the past week or so, but now, according to Elena Brodskaya (the marketing director of Walt Disney's Russian subdivision), the two movies will have an interesting cross-promotional event when Doctor Strange hits theaters:

Speaking about Rogue One, she said that like in the case of The Force Awakens, the company will keep the movie's secrets until the end but added that the final trailer will be attached to Doctor Strange which opens in Russia on October 28th (November 4 in the US).

So Star Wars fans, you've got something to look forward to (and another reason to go see Benedict Cumberbatch this November)! Considering the speed and rabidness of fans, the trailer might show up on the internet ahead of the American theatrical release of Doctor Strange, so we'll be keeping our eyes open!

Previous trailers for Rogue One have shone the spotlight on Jyn Erso and her ragtag squad of Rebel fighters, so it will be interesting to see what new material the final trailer brings to the table. If you haven't seen the trailers, the first one establishes Jyn's "reckless, aggressive, undisciplined" character and her mission: to steal the plans for the Death Star.



The second trailer focuses more on the camaraderie between Jyn and her new allies and shows a bit more of Director Krennic, the man in charge of the development of the Death Star. We also get to see some more action and a better idea of what the Rebel's operation is going to look like: landing ships and beach-storming, like Normandy. We also get to see the famous black helmet of Darth Vader, confirming that the baddest Sith in Star Wars will make an appearance:



As we've mentioned before, Disney CEO Bob Iger has called Rogue One an experiment, being the first of the Star Wars anthology films. Valene Kane, who will be playing Jyn Erso's mother, has said Rogue One has a different feel than other Star Wars movies so far:

Opening quote
"I grew up watching Stars Wars and I didn't believe it was happening until I was filming in Iceland. It has a really edgy independent vibe."
