You may have already bought your tickets for the opening night, but you can now witness some of the firepower of the fully armed and operational battle station called "The Death Star" in the latest international trailer for "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story." Check out the latest preview for the first "Star Wars" stand-alone movie, above.
Released for Chinese film marketing, the new trailer starts off with some of the standard footage that's been released in other previews, but soon new scenes featuring international stars Donnie Yen and Jiang Wen start to light up the screen. In the film, Hong Kong action star Donnie Yen plays a blind spiritual warrior named Chirrut Imwe, while fellow acclaimed Chinese actor/director Jiang Wen plays his devoted protector and long-time partner, Baze Malbus.
Directed by "Godzilla" helmer Gareth Edwards, the film also stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Riz Ahmed, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, and Alan Tudyk.
"Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" blasts its way into theaters everywhere on December 16th.
