‘Rogue One’ Final Trailer Music

In case you loved the music in the final Rogue One trailer as much as I did, you’ve probably been trying to find it on the internet. The track is titled “Machinations” and was created by a trailer music company called Ninja Tracks. It doesn’t include the force theme vocals heard in the final trailer but it’s still great. Enjoy!

Incredible Fan Made ‘Rogue One’ Super Trailer

Science vs. Cinema has put together an incredible six-minute supercut featuring footage from every Rogue One trailer released thus far.

Science vs. Cinema has put together an incredible six-minute supercut featuring footage from every Rogue One trailer released thus far.

I feel like I have seen the entire movie at this point but anyone who still has doubts about the film because of the infamous reshoots should watch this. The supercut gives you a sense of how the film is going to flow — almost beat for beat in the scene where Jyn Erso is briefed on her Father’s involvement with the creation of the original Death Star. Bottom line: it looks absolutely incredible. Garreth Edwards seems to have made something worthy of being not just the first spin-off, but the backstory detailed in the opening crawl of A New Hope as well.

It’s fan made though so don’t expect a high production value. Some of the editing is a bit wonky as it’s cutting together scenes from multiple trailers into one but it’s easily forgivable. Prepare for your mind to be blown.

Mads Mikkelsen on ‘Rogue One’ and ‘Doctor Strange’ Roles

In an interview with GQ, actor Mads Mikkelson of the upcoming Doctor Strange and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story talked about balancing his roles between the blockbusters, what it was like to work on the enormous sets of Rogue, and even let a minor detail slip about Jyn Erso when commenting on what it was like to work with actress Felicity Jones.

In an interview with GQ, actor Mads Mikkelson of the upcoming Doctor Strange and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story talked about the differences between his roles in the two blockbusters, what it was like to work on the enormous sets of Rogue, and even let a minor detail slip about Jyn Erso when commenting on what it was like to work with actress Felicity Jones.

Oh, it was great. I worked a few days with Felicity Jones and she is a wonderful actress. I worked with Jyn at three stages, and three different ages, so there was a little kid that was four, one that was eight, and then there was Felicity. So that was wonderful. I spent a lot of time with Ben Mendelsohn and that was hilarious. He’s a very funny man and he makes the day just fly by.

It isn’t a big deal but we now know we will see Jyn at four years old in addition to the ages seen in the trailers released thus far.

The actor described how incredible the sets were that Lucasfilm constructed for the film:

Well, it was great. Obviously it’s a gigantic set compared to the stuff I’m used to doing back in Europe, especially in Denmark. But, you make it a small, intimate set as well, in terms of the scenes. You just have to make the scene work even though you’re standing on a gigantic landing air force platform or wherever you are. Obviously it’s gigantic, but you try to make it small within the terms you’re working with.

Mikkelsen also talked about the differences between working on each production and the physicality required for his role as the villain Kaecilius in Doctor Strange:

Well, another big film, another big set – again, a gigantic set. A supreme cast as well. I had quite a different physicality: I was extremely physical in the Doctor Strange film; not so much on the Star Wars film, Rogue One. I think that might just have been the most physical film I’ve ever done. Something I would have embraced heavily when I was 16, but I had to do it when I was 50, which I loved – it’s a childhood dream to do flying Kung Fu and we did that a lot.

It’s quite the year for the actor who first broke onto the scene with his villainous role in Casino Royale. This winter will his stardom will rise to new heights as he is now part of the two most successful franchises in history. His role in Rogue ties him to the original classic Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope as the scientist who invented the original Death Star.
