Five things you need to know about Rogue One

039;Rogue One' Jyn Ersa geared

Official reviews are under embargo until Tuesday morning in advance of the December 16 release, but the crowd at the Pantages Theater went wild with applause as the credits rolled and took to social media to express their delight in the "Star Wars" spinoff film about the rebels who steal the plans for the Death Star. Rebellion is not easy or fair-the ragtag crew struggling against the Empire takes diversity into a new galaxy (literally), everyone needs a bath and many have done things they're "not proud of" in service of the greater good. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire's ultimate weapon of destruction. Well, this is only a natural feeling given that "Star Wars" is one of the best films in history.

Reviewers either loved or hated Disney's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story". And that'll come after Star Wars VIII in 2018.

Much was made of reshoots undertaken earlier this year, late in Rogue One's production, as Collider notes. Be sure to check out the film, which stars Felicity Jones, Riz Ahmed, Diego Luna, and more!

Taiwan 'should be wary of Trump antics'
However, Trump's suggestion that he could negotiate on Taiwan likely went too far for China, Yang said. The U.S. has long complained that China steals U.S. corporate information to help its own companies.

Trump expected to name CKE Restaurants CEO to head Labor Department
Puzder has said Obama's health-care overhaul hurt his company's growth and forced it to rely more on part-time workers. In short, Andy Puzder is wildly unqualified to be Secretary of Labor of the United States .

Trump to pick Tillerson as Secretary of State, multiple reports say
Tillerson - who has no formal foreign policy background - is sure to face sharp questions in the Senate confirmation hearings. He concluded that he expected the U.S. -Russia relationships to be "front and center" in Tillerson's confirmation process.

He added: "We have others in the works, including one, which is an origin story about Han Solo and Chewy". It's a film with poor economy of storytelling and things never run smoothly from a plotting perspective. As it stands, you have a convoluted way of bringing your characters together on Jedha but it's undermined when it feels like Whitaker put more thought into Saw's freaky accent than the writers put into fleshing out the character.

This characterization problem runs throughout the cast as everyone gets neat details, but rarely enough to invest in them as individuals. A rumor about a set of plans that may help destroy it leads him to criminal-with-a-backstory Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) who could care less.

"There are characters making cameos from the past", said Forest Whitaker, who plays the rebel fighter Saw Gerrera. Chirrut and Baze make for an endearing pair, but it's because they're cool and amusing. But, I would hazard a guess and say that it will have little to no bearing on ticket sales for the film. Numerous fans singled out several of the film's characters as standouts, specifically Alan Tudyk's K-2SO and Donnie Yen's blind warrior-monk Chirrut Imwe.
