The Last Jedi tops home video sales charts

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.

New Solo trailer debuts Sunday

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.)

Solo is going to Cannes

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.
