The studio pulled the same move with The Force Awakens which blasted onto UK cinema screens earlier, too. Although, to be honest, with preview screenings now a mainstay in most theaters, it's likely that UK audiences will actually see the movie on December 14 and US audiences on December 15. But hey, that's still 24 hours!

Directed by Gareth Edwards and starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen and Alan Tudyk, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is scheduled to open in UK cinemas on December 15 and US cinemas on December 16, 2016.
