Rogue One - A Star Wars
Story has the Force at Vue Southport Photographs with thanks to Andy Sharrock.
THE £200 million Disney and Lucasfilm's
Rogue One is set to be the block buster of 2016 and now the keenly awaited film
has finally come out on 13 December 2016. This has been eagerly anticipated by
star Wars fans and it has ignited a whole new galaxy of excitement. This could
be seen at Southport's Vue Cinema, when members of the Rebellion, had to sneak
past the Jedi Knight, Darth Vader and his followers. Whether this plot about a
group of unlikely heroes, who are banded together by the Rebellion, in order to
steal the plans for the Death Star, will be as big a hit in the long run as the
original series remains to be seen... so far the Force is strong with this film,
as it is already bringing out the audiences, young and old alike. So have you
seen this film yet? Please let us know what you think of it and are you waiting
for the next Star War's film in 2017? Email us your views to? Email us your views to:-
