This year’s Star Wars film was the first standalone entry in the franchise, so there was a little concern going in on how it would be received, but it was worry for nothing. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is well on its way to being the top grossing film of 2016, and will likely win the box office for the fourth weekend in a row. KT readers weighed in, and the only question seemed to be “Is it perfect or just really freaking amazing?” I gave the film a 9.25 and you can read the official Killing Time review by clicking here, and ‘9’ was the top rated choice of readers, followed closely by ’10’ and ‘8’. 87.19% of readers gave the film between 8.0-10. Not. Too. Shabby. Thanks to everyone who voted, and look for another Rogue One-related poll to go up soon!
This year’s Star Wars film is the first of many standalone entries we’ll be getting exploring key moments and favorite characters in the Star Wars Universe. Advance reviews for the film are largely positive; not quite the level The Force Awakens got, but better than all the prequels and Return of the Jedi. You can read the official Killing Time review by clicking here, but what did you think? Did Rogue One live up to your expectations or leave you feeling Force-drained? Vote, vote, vote (WAIT UNTIL YOU ACTUALLY SEE IT), and in the comments below tell us where you think it ranks compared to the other seven films. You’ll have one month, probably about the time the film will rule the top of the box office, to see the film and rate it from 1 (awful) to 10 (on par with the best Star Wars films of all-time). So get your votes in, and we’ll see what the KT community consensus is for first standalone entry in the the Star Wars Saga.
My apologies for technical difficulties this week, but hopefully the Killing Time IT staff has fixed our vexing computer woes. In return, I give you ANOTHER ROGUE ONE TRAILER! I know the last two they posted I said was probably the last one, but I’m happily made a liar again as Lucasfilm releases an unprecedented number of trailers for this first Star Wars spin-off film. This is the second international trailer, and while it follows the course of the last domestic trailer, there’s more Vader and Death Star action, so watch it on a loop! We’re only five weeks away from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story when it opens December 16, 2016.
