Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (NEW) and Bad Santa 2 (Red-Band) Trailers
Following the massive success of last year's Star Wars The Force Awakens, it opened up the floodgates for franchise spin-offs to dominate box offices for years to come. First up is Gareth Edwards' upcoming film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope in the scope of the series' timeline, this new effort centers around a rebellion criminal named Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) who's freed to embark on a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star. Early footage has looked amazing and this new trailer divulges even more about the story. James Earl Jones also offers his voice for the iconic villain, Darth Vader, once again. Check out the second trailer for Rogue One, which opens on December 16th, below.
Comedy sequels have become as common as the sunrise, even if they take over a decade to happen. I absolutely loved the 2003 hit, Bad Santa, therefore you can count me all in for its long-awaited sequel this November. In the latest chapter Willie (Billy Bob Thornton) re-teams with his "little" sidekick, Marcus (Tony Cox), to do what they do best, execute a plan to rob a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve. While sequels tend to be a step down from their original source material, if Bad Santa 2 comes anywhere close to the original, it could be the best comedy of the year. You can catch the first official red-band trailer below.
