Opening: “Solo: A Star Wars Story” in Theaters Everywhere (5/25/2018)

Yes my friends we have arrived at the release of another long-anticipated film and this one continues the “Star Wars” mythology by giving us a sort of origin story about that Space-pirate Han Solo. The film “Solo: A Star Wars Story” opens today in theaters everywhere so let’s take a look at the theatrical poster, some premise and the casting. I’ve even secured a couple of different theatrical posters for you in this post so how about that.

The Premise: A space Western, the film is centered on a young Han Solo and his adventures with his Wookiee partner Chewbacca, including their encounter with Lando Calrissian.

The Cast/Characters:
Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo
Woody Harrelson as Beckett
Emilia Clarke as Kira
Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian
Thandie Newton
Phoebe Waller-Bridge
Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca
Paul Bettany as an undisclosed character
Jon Kasdan as Tag Greenley
Toby Hefferman as Bink Otauna
Ian Kenny – undisclosed role
Warwick Davis – undisclosed role
Clint Howard – undisclosed role

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Much like “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”, “Solo: A Star Wars Story” is a prequel to the main events that we’ve been following for so many years. “Rogue One” was an amazing film and I think I’ve seen that one at least ten times by now. I hope by now you’ve seen it because its just a wonderful story from beginning to end. “Solo” takes place before we initially meet him in “Star Wars: A New Hope” and the trailers looked like some thrilling fun so I have high hopes for it. I’ve already noted how disappointed I was with “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and feel that the side tales might be the best way to keep the franchise interesting. I’m planning on seeing this film early in the run but it might be a couple of weeks based on a very busy personal calendar. What about you? Are you seeing it right away? If you do, please don’t post any sort of spoilers okay. Ciao for now.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As you know I hold back on commentary about the teaser trailers and since the “Big Game” spot was only a minute long that applies here as well. They’ve noted that a longer trailer comes tomorrow so let’s stay tuned. I’ll be sharing that one for sure and then chiming in deeper about it. This looked promising but let’s wait until the full on trailer for our commentary. Stay tuned for that.
