Trailer « Felicity Jones Daily


 




Darth Vader is more menacing than ever before when he finally makes an appearance in the brand new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer.

An extended preview airing during NBC’s Rio Olympic Games coverage on Thursday (August 11) held off its very brief glimpse of the Sith Lord until its final seconds.

A silhouette of Darth Vader is sure to send shivers down every Star Wars fan’s spine when it’s shown for one single second – as the unmistakeable sound of his heavy breathing is heard.

Lucasfilm finally revealed in June that the legendary James Earl Jones is once again voicing Vader in the pseudo-prequel to A New Hope – although he apparently only wields his lightsaber in key scenes.

“He will be in the movie sparingly,” Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has teased. “But at a key, strategic moment, he’s going to loom large.”

The Star Wars franchise’s first spinoff will take place at a time somewhere between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope and will explore character backstories and all their history in a galaxy far, far away.

Billed as a heist flick – but in space – the film is set to follow “a wayward band of Rebel fighters” led by Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) as they come together to fight the forces of evil and steal plans for the Death Star before it’s too late.

“There isn’t much time,” Jyn warns her fellow rebels in the new trailer. “Everyday they grow stronger.”

Featuring appearances from a younger Darth Vader and a recently-confirmed cameo by Princess Leia’s adopted father Senator Bail Organa, there’s a lot to get excited about.


Jyn Erso is coming for the Rio Olympics. As revealed in a new commercial, the next trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will air Thursday during the Summer Games, coverage of which airs on NBC.

The announcement spot, featuring footage from the previous trailer, was caught by a Twitter user and posted online, after which Lucasfilm confirmed the trailer debut in a tweet. It’s unclear exactly what we’ll see, but the film’s panel hosted by Gwendoline Christie during Star Wars Celebration Europe screened footage that, among other things, revealed Darth Vader’s big-screen return.

Rogue One, directed by Godzilla’s Gareth Edwards, stars Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso, enlisted by the Rebels to steal the plans for the Death Star that would later be used in the original Star Wars trilogy to take it down.

Also featured are Diego Luna as Captain Cassian Andor, Alan Tudyk as droid K-2SO, Mads Mikkelsen as Galen Erso, Ben Mendelsohn as Director Orson Krennic, and Forest Whitaker as Star Wars: The Clone Wars character Saw Gerera. Learn more about the characters here.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will debut in theaters on Dec. 16.

Tom Hanks and Felicity Jones are trying to stop a worldwide plague in Sony’s intense new trailer for “Inferno,” based on author Dan Brown’s thriller of the same name.

The teaser opens with a man committing suicide off a tower after being told “It appears that you’re out of options,” followed by Hanks’ Robert Langdon character being summoned by the witness to the suicide. Clues lead him to drawings of Dante’s “Inferno” that have been changed.

“Dante defined our conception of hell 700 years ago, but these circles have been altered,” he declares. “‘Dante’s Inferno’ isn’t fiction — it’s a prophecy.”

It turns out that a madman is trying to wipe half the world’s population, and kill Langdon. Langdon, who suffers from amnesia, teams up with Sienna Brooks (Jones), a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories, as he fights for his life.

Ron Howard returns as helmer after directing Hanks in the franchise’s previous installments: “The Da Vinci Code” (2006) and “Angels & Demons” (2009).

Howard and Brian Grazer are producing. David Koepp wrote the script, as he did for “Angels & Demons.” The two previous installments, also adapted from Brown’s novels, grossed more than $1.2 billion at the worldwide box office.

“Inferno” opens on Oct. 14.

Josh Greenstein, president of worldwide marketing and distribution, said in a statement Thursday, “There is tremendous excitement for the franchise as evidenced by the overwhelmingly positive test response. Among all audiences, Inferno scores in the 90s in the top two boxes, and with the core audience of older women, it’s 100%. Once again, Ron Howard really delivered. This movie will be a huge global event.”


Nicholas Hoult and Felicity Jones run from danger in a new poster for their upcoming film Collide.

In the flick, Nicholas plays Casey Stein, who must go back to his old ways as a miscreant in order to make enough money for his girlfriend Juliette, played by Felicity, to get a kidney transplant.

Casey suddenly finds himself on the run from a ruthless gang headed by a mob boss and must find a way to protect Juliette before she is captured and held as ransom.

Collide is set to hit theaters on August 19.
