1. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Who’s in it? Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Donnie Yen, Forest Whitaker
Who’s directing it? Gareth Edwards (Godzilla)
Why do I care? Two words: Darth (wheeze) Vader. The first Star Wars ‘anthology’ film standing outside the official nine-movie canon takes us back to just before 1977’s A New Hope, exploring the events leading up to the capture of Princess Leia. If the return of the big black asthmatic one doesn’t grab you in the villain stakes, keep an eye out for Ben Mendelsohn doing his best sneering Imperial officer.
