“There is a 97.6 percent chance of failure,” one of the characters says in the new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, referring to their scheme to steal the plans for the Death Star. I’m not sure the percentage is that high for the movie itself, but it’s got to be up there. There’s a lot of risk for Rogue One, or at least as much risk as there can be for a Star Wars movie. It’s got to prove that there is life for the franchise beyond the main “saga” films.

This Rogue One movie has more intrigue than a secret rebellion against a galactic empire.
The good news: Lucasfilm is finally rolling out the TV spots for Rogue One. The bad news: there’s not much new here.
