People seem to be increasingly interested in a film’s running time and want to know it before the film comes out. The cynic in me wonders if in some cases it’s so that somebody can work out how long they will have to go without looking at their phone. There seems to be a general assumption that longer equals better, though that’s not always the case, with what is to me the worst of the Star Wars films Attack Of The Clones being the longest one, running for 142 minutes. And actually, the shortest Star Wars film is the one I still consider to be the best [sorry Empire Strikes Back], A New Hope, which lasts 121 minutes.
Anyway, Making Star Wars have noticed that Australia’s Event Cinemas have a running time for Rogue One. It’s 133 minutes, which is bang in the middle of the franchise in terms of running times. So there you have it.
