Starring: Ben Mendelsohn and Felicity Jones
Unlikely heroes band together to steal the plans to the Death Star
This epic film, officially described as a space opera, is the first installment of the Star Wars anthology series, and an immediate prequel to Star Wars (1977). It was well-recieved, and was deemed to be quite refreshing, but only really for die hard fans of the genre. The author, having ‘missed the boat’ on the original Star Wars films, shall not be getting too excited by proceedings and will likely see such a film as only mildly entertaining. The London Underground’s Canary Wharf station on the Jubilee Line was used as a location for a chase scene in an Imperial base; the location shoot taking place between midnight and 4 am, when the station was closed to the public. Much of this action used the concourse and void areas of the station where there are few actual clues as to the location’s real identity. The film is often referred to simply as Rogue One.
