Star Wars Rogue One - An Actual Trailer

The first Star Wars Rogue One actual trailer is out, and for some odd reason that I cannot put my finger on, it did nothing for me. I didn't dislike it, nor did I like it - just...nothing. I really had no expectations for the movie, but my non-response to this first look is kind of puzzling.

I guess they are bringing us a more gritty-looking Star Wars universe, and that's fine. With some exceptions, the cast looks to comprise some not-so-well-known actors, and that's fine too (Ms. Ridley and Mr. Boyega, anyone?!). Nothing seems particularly out of place or "wrong" - there are Stormtroopers, AT-AT walkers, blasters and so on - it's just not blowing my skirt up, so to speak.

I am certainly not dismissing the movie based upon one trailer, and I may just be having a grumpy day - we shall see.
