Weekend News Recap: New Trailers for ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ and ‘Suicide Squad’ Hit

This past weekend brought two huge trailers and I mean huge! The first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was released and we also got to see a new trailer for the upcoming Suicide Squad. Let’s get started.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

We finally got to meet the new characters of Rogue One and also see some familiar faces in the new trailer. Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) is playing the role of Jyn Erso who is a thief and a rebel. The rebellion brought her in to steal the plans of the Death Star. One familiar face from the Star Wars galaxy that we seen was Mon Mothma who is played by Genevieve O’Reilly. The last time we seen O’Reilly in a Star Wars film was in 2005 in Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Also in the trailer we got to see some good footage of  Forest Whitaker, Donnie Yen, stormtroopers and some At-Ats. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters December 16.



Suicide Squad

A new trailer for the upcoming Suicide Squad movie also came out this weekend and “WOW!” Not only did we get to see a lot of great footage of the team of villains assembled but we even got to see Batman and it also seems that Batman v Superman was tied into this film. This is the third trailer for the film and it was filled with lots of action and comedy, even more so than the previous two trailers. I feel like the Suicide Squad is going to be DC’s version of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. I mean you have your group of dysfunctional misfits, coming together to become unlikely heroes. Well, except, these aren’t heroes at all. Also, the soundtrack seems to be going with some classic rock music, which Guardians of the Galaxy also did and it worked really well. I’m really excited for Suicide Squad. Aug 5 can’t come soon enough.

Which trailer did you love the most? Let us know in the comment section below.
