He wears it in a few of the previews, specifically in the street fight they get into on Jedha

Anytime someone talks about scene switching quickly and getting "whiplash" is dumb.

Exactly but I have a hard time dropping 170 on a jacket & brand I've never see or heard of. I wear Columbia quite a bit.

For those interested in box office talk:
http://www.thewrap.com/star-wars-rogue-one-china-new-year-donnie-yen/

Quote:

"Force Awakens" grossed a solid but unspectacular $124 million in China, well short of the records the film set in dozens of other territories. To compare, "Captain America: Civil War," which had a little more than half the global box office gross of "Force Awakens," reeled in $190 million in Chinalone.

Quote:

Disney's culturally conscious casting of Chinese movie stars Donnie Yen and Jiang Wen should help differentiate "Rogue One," even if the country's audience is sophisticated enough to see through blatantly obvious attempts to add Chinese elements to tentpole movies.

"I do think that the inclusion of Donnie Yen and Jiang Wen will attract more general audiences and casual moviegoers who might decide which movie to see at the theater as opposed to buying tickets beforehand," Papish said. "Still, the Chinese audience is numb to Hollywood blockbusters throwing in random Chinese elements and increasingly feels pandered to."


Quote:

As word of Yen and Jiang being more than bit players gets out, Papish said it could help sell the film to a skeptical public.

The news that Donnie and Jiang have meatier roles than most Chinese performers in Hollywood films will hopefully hit social media and general audiences who didn't see 'The Force Awakens' will turn up," he said.

Quote:

The biggest challenge for "Rogue One," which hits U.S. theaters on Dec. 16, could have been its release date in China, which remained a mystery until Tuesday, when it was confirmed to hit the country's cinemas on Jan. 6, according to the official Star Wars Weibo account. While there's virtually zero chance the film doesn't make it to China, the date itself matters a lot.

Chinese New Year, which comes early in 2017, is an unofficial but established blackout period for China's cinemas, in which only local fare is permitted. The official holiday, which is determined by the lunar calendar, fell on February 8 this year, but it moves to January 28 in 2017. And that shift could have eclipsed "Rogue One's" box office dreams especially as the film's lack of a prompt release date announcement raised speculation that it would be pushed too close to the holiday.

Papish said that would have left Disney with the "unenviable option" of releasing the movie in the middle of February, after Chinese New Year is over. That exposes the studio to more piracy and bad word-of-mouth, but it might be the best out of a group of sub-optimal choices a situation possibly exacerbated by the tepid performance of "Force Awakens" in China, which even benefited from a Jan. 8 release date, giving the film more than a month before Chinese New Year.

The Scarif DLC came out today for Battlefront. The planet looks pretty amazing in the game.

thanks for posting that. Very interesting and I did not even think of the impact of casting ethnically chinese actors to the bottomline.

Been happening for a while actually. Dreamworks opened a Chinese division to work on Kung Fu Panda 3, and the last Transformers had a few big name Chinese actors in bit parts (also got sued because they didn't correctly place Chinese product as agreed).

I guess if we did, then I could post an image from the international trailer and get some discussion going on it. I've mostly held off out of courtesy for people that don't want to know much about R1 going into it.

You mean in respect to spoilers?

A 2nd thread was created I believe. However even after a certain point there was a PSA flashy post on the SW thread that spoilers were fair game.

We started the Spoiler thread the weekend before the movie dropped.

Then we had 30 day spoiler block on this thread to give everyone time to see it.

Thanks for the new thread.

From this point (until Jan 1), anything that could be considered even semi-spoilery should go on the Rogue One thread. General thoughts and reactions can still go here as long as nothing specific is discussed. Let's keep this thread open for all to continue enjoying without fear of being spoiled.

8 days to go!

With the premiere on Saturday, where should Twitter reactions go? Is it cool if non-spoiler tweet reactions are posted here? I think what I did last year is post reactions in both threads, leaving anything even remotely more than a vague reaction for the spoiler thread.

There is a reason why North Korea is typically cast as the bad guys....they don't buy movie tickets
