‘Star Wars Rogue One’ Trailer Gets Even Better When You Add the Beastie Boys — Watch

You can't miss this.

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”


After watching the first teaser for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” audiences were pretty pumped for the spin-off action film. Then the first trailer arrived and all hell broke loose (in a good way). But now, excitement for the film is on another level, all thanks to the Beastie Boys.

Video editor and YouTuber Matthew Longua made a killer new remix trailer for “Rogue One,” but instead of using composer Alexandre Desplat’s music, he swapped it out for the song “Sabotage” by Beastie Boys. The result is amazing!

The song cues in after Jyn Erso’s (Felicity Jones) line “I rebel,” and instantly kicks the video into high gear, making the footage look even more badass, all while elevating the action sequences.

The film has been generating much buzz since its announcement and promises to be a darker more “docu-style” movie with a guerrilla filmmaking feel.

Directed by Gareth Edwards, “Rogue One” stars Jones as Jyn, leader of the group of Rebels and mercenaries who are tasked with stealing the plans to the Empire’s secret weapon, the Death Star. The film co-stars Diego Luna, Alan Tudyk, Donnie Yen, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen and James Earl Jones as Darth Vader.

After watching this killer remix trailer you won’t be able to watch the original.
