StarWars.com is back with our third Last Shot excerpt – this one featuring a pre-Solo Lando Calrissian and L3-37.
In USA Today’s summer movie preview, Solo star Alden Ehrenreich reveals the first scene he filmed, and talked about how young Han differs from the Harrison Ford version. We also get a new picture from that sandy location we’ve seen a few times now.
It might be hard to tell if you have a tendency to spend too much time on social media, but The Last Jedi isn’t having any trouble selling Blu-rays and DVDs. 2017’s top box office earner is now leading home video sales charts “by a wide margin,” per Variety. Second placer Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which debuted at #1 last week, only sold 29% as much as The Last Jedi this week.
The full Solo trailer is here, with more on Han, Chewbacca, Lando, Qi’ra, L3-37 and our first look at Paul Bettany’s Dryden Vos.
Tickets aren’t going on sale tonight, but it can’t be long now. Head under the cut for a look at the new poster and some stills from, the trailer.
A new Solo trailer is debuting Sunday, official accounts are teasing. There’s a promo out there that pegs it as appearing during ABC’s American Idol reboot, which starts at 8:00 p.m. (Since it’s not football season, but honestly… I’d rather watch football. Luckily, it’s 2018 and we have Twitter and Youtube.)

The second promo, with a touch more new footage and the Idol sting:

A Renault commercial features Solo’s Conveyex, Chewbacca, Millennium Falcon and speeder bike gang.
Keeping with the French, we’ve also learned an interesting detail about one of the film’s antagonists. Several new publicity images/posters have also appeared.
Our second excerpt from Daniel José Older’s Last Shot – the Solo tie-in novel – features Sana Starros. Starros first appeared in Marvel’s Star Wars comic back in 2015, and has been a regular in the comics ever since. Last Shot will be her first time in a novel.
The first excerpt, from March, is a moment of Han with baby Ben. Last Shot will be out in hardcover and eBook on April 17.
The drama du jour is one that’s a bit more stale than yesterday’s but so much more dramatic: Tony Gilroy on Rogue One. The film was in “terrible, terrible trouble,” he said on The Moment With Brian Koppelman podcast. Continue reading “Tony Gilroy on Rogue One: “It was just a mess””
Solo: A Star Wars Story will be making its debut at the Cannes Film Festival, the festival has announced. The film will premiere on May 15, ten days before the official May 25 release date, per Deadline, who was first to report the news.
This isn’t a Star Wars first: Both Attack of the Clones in 2002 and Revenge of the Sith in 2005 had their debuts at the festival. The festival’s history with the franchise goes back a lot further than that, though.
Solo is the first Star Wars movie since Sith to be released in May.
Director Ron Howard brought The Da Vinci Code to Cannes in 2006, and Lucasfilm’s Willow way back in 1988.
