The final trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be attached to new Marvel movie Doctor Strange, according to a report. According to normally very reliable fan site, Star Wars News Net, a Russian Disney marketing exec said that the film's final trailer will be shown before screenings of the Benedict Cumberbatch-led superhero movie. Doctor Strange opens in Russia on October 28, but three days before that on October 25 in the UK. In the US, it opens a little later on November 4. The first of three planned spin-off films, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is due for release on December 16. British actress Felicity Jones, who received an Oscar nomination for her performance opposite Eddie Redmayne in Theory Of Everything, stars as a mercenary called Jyn Erso. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story also stars Riz Ahmed, Mads Mikkelsen, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker and Diego Luna. It has recently been revealed that the film will end 10 minutes before the original 1977 movie Star Wars: A New Hope begins. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first in Disney's "Anthology Series" of spin-off films that will continue with the currently untitled Han Solo prequel movie due in 2018. It was announced in July that rising star Alden Ehrenreich has been cast as a younger version of the character made famous by Harrison Ford. A third Anthology Series film will follow in 2020, Disney confirmed earlier this week. In May, it was reported that Disney had ordered weeks of costly reshoots on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. According to The Hollywood Reporter, "the goal of the reshoots will be to lighten the mood" as right now Rogue One has the "feel of a war movie".

Tim Burton has offered an explanation for the apparent lack of diversity in his latest film, Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children. The film, an adaptation of Ransom Riggs' popular fantasy novel, has been called into question for featuring a predominantly white cast, with pre-release publicity material suggesting Samuel L. Jackson is the only nonwhite actor playing a reasonably significant part. Asked about diversity by Bustle, the director replied: "Nowadays, people are talking about it more," before adding: "Things either call for things, or they don't." "I remember back when I was a child watching The Brady Bunch and they started to get all politically correct," Burton continued. "Like, OK, let's have an Asian child and a black. I used to get more offended by that than just... I grew up watching blaxploitation movies, right? And I said, that's great. I didn't go like, OK, there should be more white people in these movies." Bustle also asked Jackson about the film's lack of diversity, and report that the actor said he had "noticed it". Jackson continued: "I had to go back in my head and go, how many black characters have been in Tim Burton movies? And I may have been the first, I don't know, or the most prominent in that particular way, but it happens the way it happens. I don't think it's any fault of his or his method of storytelling, it's just how it’s played out. Tim's a really great guy." Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children hits cinemas tomorrow (September 30). Watch the trailer below.
