Collide, Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  February 24th has three new wide releases, but most movie fans are focused on the Academy Awards which will air Sunday night (spoiler: La La Land will win, I’m calling at least 9 Oscars, so just get ready for that).

Rogue One’s Original Ending Explained

The Final Frontier has gone through and compiled a detailed  look at what the reshoots actually changed in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.  The film is a perfect example of dramatic reshoots improving a film and not being the knell of doom they’re usually viewed as (though I still think the first act in Jedha is a little choppy).  Going through the scenes we all thought we were getting from the trailers that never appeared in the film, the video offers a lot of great insight on what was a cut and what was never intended to be in the film in the first place.  One thing I found interesting was that I assumed that the decision to kill the whole team (no, I didn’t put a spoiler warning on it because you’re a putz if you haven’t seen it by now) had been a part of the reshoots, but Lucasfilm authorized that before filming began. HOW the team perished though was a large part of the reshoots.  Check it out while we wait to hear the details of what will be on the Rogue One Blu Ray and when we can expect it.

Poll Results: Favorite New Character from Rogue One

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story broke the $1 billion mark at the global box office this weekend and last weekend captured the 2016 box office crown, the second year in a row a Star Wars film has held it (and it’s tough to imagine anything outgrossing Episode VIII later this year).  With each new Star Wars film, come new characters to the Saga’s canon.  Last year, KT readers picked Rey as their favorite character from Episode VII, this year when asked for their favorite from Rogue One, it was never even close.  Donnie Yen’s blind, Force-sensitive monk Chirrut Imwe dominated the voting from the first day.  Finishing second was Felicity Jones; Jyn Erso, and third (my pick a hair over Chirrut) Alan Tudyk’s sarcastic droid K-2SO.  Every new character got votes, though, which is a tribute to how much fans have embraced this film, and how successful the first standalone Star Wars film has been.  Stay tuned this week: after the Oscar nominations are released, the 5th annual KT Community Movie of the Year Poll will go live!
