How Much Will Star Wars’ ‘Rogue One’ Make on Opening Weekend?

Remember that time we were more or less promised a new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer and it never happened? Yeah. Though our hearts may never truly recover, our minds know how to move on and can now enjoy the slow trickle of new Rogue One info ahead of an actual new trailer slated for release later this week. Entertainment Weekly has the latest scoop, with Rogue One director Gareth Edwards opening up about the spiritual value of Jedha.

“The Force is basically in Star Wars like a religion, and they’re losing their faith in the period that we start the movie,” Edwards told EW Monday. “We were trying to find a physical location we could go to that would speak to the themes of losing your faith and the choice between letting the Empire win, or evil win, and good prevailing. It got embodied in this place we called Jedha.”
