Rogue One trailer: Beastie Boys Sabotage remix
As it happens, Jyn Erso’s secret mission against the Empire pairs really well with the Beastie Boys. Video editor and YouTuber Matthew Longua made the connection and remixed the Rogue One trailer to the music of “Sabotage.”
Hopefully by now we all realize how important music is to movies. So when the orchestration from composer Alexandre Desplat was swapped for a song that featured in Star Trek Beyond, the film instantly transformed into a summer blockbuster extravaganza, a la Guardians of the Galaxy.
Watch the remix in the video (surfaced via Uproxx) above.
Directed by Gareth Edwards, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story centers on Felicity Jones’ Jyn as the Rebel forces recruit her to steal the plans for the Death Star. Joining her for this adventure are Diego Luna, Alan Tudyk, Donnie Yen, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, and James Earl Jones as Darth Vader.
The film will hit theaters this Dec. 16.
