diego luna interview

Everyone at the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story junket is tired, exhausted from days of press and hours of interviews. Except for Diego Luna. He’s alert and energetic and improbably cheerful for a man who has been answering questions from reporters and bloggers all day.

The actor I sit down with couldn’t feel more different from his character, Captain Cassian Andor, a Rebel intelligence officer who was seen making some very tough decisions in the Rogue One footage we saw the night before. Cassian is a pragmatic soldier not above living in shades of gray to get the job done. Diego Luna is positive, charming, and had to go camping with former Marines so he could learn the ins and outs of soldering. Our conversation was far too brief.

Rogue One Clip

The clips are starting to pour in for Gareth Edwards‘ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. After plenty of welcomed secrecy, just two short weeks before the movie finally comes out, we’re seeing more and more footage. Yesterday brought us a clip in which Stormtroopers have yet to master the art of simply aiming, while today brings us a new clip showing Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) and Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) trying to get on the same page and another with a character you’ll remember from the prequels.

Below, watch the Rogue One clips.

We’re two weeks from the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and the marketing machine has entered the “Screw it, let’s some ’em everything!” phase. At this point, to take in every new TV spot and every new promotional video is to risk seeing a little too much…unless that is entirely your goal. So you probably know whether or not you want to watch the first clip from director Gareth Edwards‘ spin-off film, which is set in the time right before the events of the original 1977 Star Wars and follows a brand new crew of characters who set out to steal the Empire’s Death Star plans and ensure that the events of the original trilogy happen in the first place.

Star Wars: Rogue One images - Ben Mendelsohn as Orson Krennic (header)

As we saw last year with The Force Awakens, the Star Wars marketing team knows how to reveal tons of imagery, footage, and juicy detail without giving away much at all. Now, as Rogue One enters the final weeks of its promotional campaign, it seems to be sticking to a similar formula of intense secrecy combined with total ubiquity. You can’t throw a rock these days without hitting yet another new Rogue One TV spot or specialty poster or cast interview, and yet I’m feeling pretty confident that we can trust Disney not to “spoil” anything significant. Your mileage may vary, of course.

Which brings us to Disney’s latest volley in their relentless campaign for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The studio’s unveiled a whole bunch of hi-res Rogue One images, some of which are just higher-quality versions of photos we’ve already seen and others of which appear to be completely new. Either way, you can probably rest assured you’re in good hands with Disney. At least unless you’re the kind of spoilerphobe who’s sworn off all Rogue One marketing already, in which case you’ve probably already scrolled past this post. See the new Rogue One images below.

rogue one featurette

In the months leading up to the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, it feels like we’ve talked about every character in the movie except Diego Luna‘s Captain Cassian Andor, whose role appears to be “straight-laced soldier who has to wrangle together all of those strange rebel misfits.” Since I like Luna quite a bit and am eagerly awaiting to see him contribute to the Star Wars universe, this new featurette focusing on his experiences on the set of the film feels like it arrived at the just the right time.

International trailers tend to spoil far too much. Thankfully, that’s not exactly the case with the international trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but the latest look at Gareth Edwards‘ (Godzilla) war film does include some new plot details and new footage. There’s one new line, in particular, related to Jyn Erso’s father (Mads Mikkelsen) that expands on the setup of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Flatliners Sequel

Just a few weeks ago, the developing Flatliners remake gained an interesting name with Kiefer Sutherland joining the cast. What’s interesting about the addition of Sutherland to the cast is that he starred in the original 1990 cult favorite thriller, and his involvement in the new take on the story opened up the possibility of this being more of a sequel instead of a true remake. Now we seem to have confirmation of as much from Kiefer Sutherland himself. Find out what the actor had to say about the Flatliners sequel after the jump. Read More »
