My excitement level for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just went into hyperdrive after seeing the Rogue One trailer mashed with Beastie Boys‘ “Sabotage.” It was freaking fantastic. Seriously, I had an eye-gasim and an ear-gasim simultaneously. I didn’t even know that was possible, but trust me, it is.
Here’s the thing about the power that the Force (aka Disney) has right now. They are getting me all hot and bothered for a movie that I already know how it ends. SPOILERS! The Death Star will explode at the end of this movie. You know what? I’m so blinded by how awesome the trailer looks that I don’t care. I really don’t.
Here’s some “inside baseball talk” for you regarding Star Wars and JJ Abrams. JJ loves him some Beastie Boys. In almost every movie JJ has directed, he has managed to slide the Beastie Boys in some way or another. For example, X-Wing pilot Ello Asty (pronounced phonetically “hello nasty”) is a wink-wink-nod-nod to the Beastie Boys album “Hello Nasty.” Ello’s helmet even says “Born to Ill” on it, yet another nod to another Beastie Boys album “Licensed to Ill.” JJ you sneaky bastard.
Not only that, I read a theory that the “BB” in BB-8 stands for Beastie Boys and that the “8” stands for the fact that the group has put out eight studio albums.
Here’s Mike D’s reaction to all the fanfare given in Star Wars The Force Awakens.
What a wonderful world we live in when almost each year, during Christmas, we get a new Star Wars movie. Freaking amazing time to be alive people. Just think of all those poor schmoes in the ’80s that had to wait years for each of the original trilogy movies to come out. Hahahaha!
Is it even a question as to what I’ll rate this trailer?
