Solo: A Star Wars Story - four more posters land

Solo: A Star Wars Story - four more posters land

In fact, the movie seems perfectly created to win back those who were upset by the visionary The Last Jedi's devastatingtwists and turns. Hats off to Chewbacca actor Joonas Suotamo, who discreetly stepped into the franchise to take on more action-intensive scenes for original Chewie actor, Peter Mayhew, in 2016's The Force Awakens and has since assumed the reigns nearly entirely.

Ultimately, it's what the fans think that will really count, and there's still a week-plus to find out as Solo: A Star Wars Story officially opens on May 25.

Most Star Wars fans won't know what the film is like until it releases on May 25th, 2018. "Of course, there are still many stories to tell about Han and Chewbacca, but Lando will be next". Han's Dickensian youth just doesn't carry as much weight as the storytellers might have imagined. Ron Howard is Solo's credited director, but we all know he didn't start out that way, and I confess to spending the first little bit of Solo trying to spot the joints. They're separated thanks to the Empire's overbearing influence, and Han ends up falling into the employ of a crew of thieves led by Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson), an admitted Long John Silver/Will Munny-type that teaches him the ropes and gets him involved in some of the biggest heists of his life. As part of the classic franchise, it comes across a little disjointed and disconnected as if it was the bastard step-child of the iconic film series, which may actually be apropos considering the Han Solo character always seems to be the "black sheep" of the rebel alliance.

BOTTOM LINE The brightest character in the "Star Wars" universe gets a lackluster spin-off. The bad guy, crime lord Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany), resembles the worst kind of Pierce Brosnan-era "James Bond" villains. Year later, he falls in with a tough crew of hustlers led by Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) and they embark on a scheme to rob barrels of something risky for one Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany at his slipperiest) and his dodgy sky-bound cartel. Her bond with Lando in particular is both hilarious and daring and will surely provoke many conversations.

"Solo" is a straightforward piece of pulpy entertainment with some very agreeable performances from Ehrenreich and Glover, who seems to be having the most fun of all the actors in playing up Lando's suave demeanor, and fun classic Western flourishes, despite the excessively big action sequences.

Walsh also shared some red carpet shots of Newton, dubbing the Swarovski-detailed gown, "a dress made of dreams, and it's about time!" Star Wars movies are usually rated well by critics, but do they still like Solo?

Technology serves some pretty fantastic purposes, but there may not be another head-scratching use of the gifts of the modern age than seeing a fan retrofit a new property to be more like the version they hold most dear.

Glover also gets some of the best costumes, including a selection of capes a la Screamin' Jay Hawkins.

Never has the indefinite article done such heavy lifting since the "A" in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Attempting to bring Harrison Ford's character back to the silver screen with a new actors is certainly ambitious, although early reception for the movie has been fairly positive. The film also continues the franchise's renewed interest in practical effects, making this once again feel like a lived-in world populated by "real" creatures and "working" vehicles and droids.
