Oh thank goodness, finally a year where I won't feel the urge to see a Star Wars movie.

NOTE: It's also reportedly a quasi-comedy, which is why they went with Howard once whats-his-name was fired.

So it'll be... interesting.

Only thing it makes me think of:

Huh.  Google image search has that showing up on some... interesting sites.  That I would probably rather not visit while at work.

Probably of no concern though, I haven't been fired for visiting here yet!   awesome, for real

It's Hope Solo, an American Soccer player, who was momentarily famous for something a few years back, iirc.  She also took some selfies of her nethers, and shared them online.  I advise against looking for them.

Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.

I agree.

Of course, the quality of the final film will depend entirely on how much money it takes in.

I like the new trailer. I have a sneaky suspicion that this film, like Rogue One, will be better than both VII and VIII.

I look forward to the further Marvelization of Star Wars. So far we have a war movie (in Star Wars) and a heist movie (in Star Wars).  Now we need an action-packed buddy comedy (in Star Wars), a Shakespearean family drama (in Star Wars), a western (in Star Wars) and how about an espionage thriller (in Star Wars)?

I would have gone with Hope Solo?

A New Hope Solo?

I dunno, need more coffee.

Edit:  And of course we've already done the Hope Solo thing.  Ah well, I'll leave it as a monument of my failure to re-read the thread.

Sort of.  It really didn't feel like a spy movie, though.

I'm thinking we'll get Kely's Star Wars Heroes where a bunch of deserting rebel's liberate a planet while just trying to steal the stargold vs 3 AT-AT's.

I got some serious Western vibes from this trailer. I mean, they're robbing a train for god's sake...

Hmm, looks like it could be fun.  I'm tentatively on board with it.

This really isn't much of an issue for me.  In like, 95% of movies like this, you already know the main character is going to live.  They never kill him.  So doesn't really ruin much.

If sonething like who lives and who dies can spoil a movie - it probably wasn't a good movie anyway.

That would indeed be the best take possible for this.  Alas, I highly doubt thats how it will go.

Put this in context of Game of Thrones and Walking Dead and you realized how shitty both of those shows are at their core. Both thrive on that exact point.

I digress, good sirs. This movie appears as if it will be fun.

As regards Game of Thrones up to and including season 3 episode 9, I disagree with you entirely. In fact I think it is a better show up to that point if you already know the twists.

But walking dead, yes obviously, and I don't think anyone argues it is still a good programme either way.
