Rogue One Tickets Go On Sale, Darth Vader Looms In New TV Spot

There was a great disturbance on the internet late Sunday night. The official Star Wars Twitter account announced the launch of advance tickets for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and fans quickly swarmed.

To celebrate the occasion, Lucasfilm also released another TV spot, and this one is heavy on the breathing. Although it features a lot of shots that we've seen in previous trailers, the ominous sounds of Darth Vader permeate the background, culminating in some foreboding glimpses of the Sith Lord. (His theme music has never sounded better.)

But the big reveal might actually be the inclusion of another classic Star Wars villain in Rogue One. One sequence appears to show Grand Moff Tarkin, played by the late Peter Cushing in the original 1977 film. About a year ago The Daily Mail reported that Tarkin might be digitally recreated for spin-off, and that sure looks like him watching as the Death Star is being assembled (although we only see the back of the character's head).

Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter says Rogue One is expected to open to more than $130 million in North American box office sales, which would make it the second-biggest December release of all time (behind last year's Star Wars: The Force Awakens).

Rogue One lands in theaters Dec. 16. While it can't come soon enough, check out a few new details we've learned about Vader's potential role in the movie.
