Will Lando Get the Next 'Star Wars' Spinoff? Lucasfilm Clarifies Comments

Solo Star Wars Story huge cameo revealed

Solo Star Wars Story huge cameo revealed

Thandie Newton wore a gown featuring the faces of all of the black "Star Wars" characters to the premiere of "Solo: A Star Wars Story" on Tuesday (15.05.18).

Solo: A Star Wars Story is scheduled to release in India on May 25.

Do you want to see a Lando movie? Though first reactions to the standalone were largely stellar, with critics applauding Alden Ehrenreich's take on young Han Solo and calling him "the real deal", many still wondered if Solo would soar or stumble upon launch. It is a world reminiscent of the grimiest parts of Blade Runner, filled with grey colours and heavy rain.

"This is lovely", Emilia Clarke (Qi'ra) said in the video, presumably referring to the stunning costumes. Han is warned early on by Woody Harrelson's Tobias to "assume everyone will betray you... then you won't be disappointed". "But yeah, so I get very frustrated with that in particular because you don't get 'strong men, ' unless they're like physically strong men". The plot is actually extremely convoluted - filled with time jumps, endless double crossings, and unexpected deaths of just-introduced characters - all made to show just how complicated the life of a bandit can be. Even a Star Wars version of poker plays a significant role. The film will be the second Star Wars anthology film, following the 2016 film Rogue One. "It would also be fun to tell the story of Han and Chewie". As it turns out, things got lost in translation.

"Thandie had the brilliant idea to make a dress covered in a print with photos of iconic black @starwars characters", said Newton's stylist Erin Walsh as she captioned the images. "So when there would come a job where that was maybe being discussed, again, it's shocking - actually shocking".

Improved Block 5 Falcon 9 rocket debuts
According to SpaceX Chief Executive Elon Musk, the Block 5 is created to be "the most reliable rocket ever assembled". SpaceX blamed "a normal ground system automobile abort" for stopping the countdown 58 minutes prior to liftoff.

In all other aspects, Ron Howard, delivers a competent and workmanlike story. Describing the movie as a "boisterous bromance", he thought star Alden Ehrenreich "ably apes Harrison Ford in this straightforwardly rollicking adventure, which betrays little trace of its troubled production".

But based on the reviews so far, the movie seems better than expected. Phoebe Waller-Bridge has an entertaining voice role as Spartacist droid L3-37. Ultimately, she isn't given enough to do. But the last few years of new Star Wars films have begun to balance the race and gender demographics of the faraway galaxy's roster of heroes. J.J. Abrams was criticized for making The Force Awakens too formulaic and A New Hope-ish, and Rian Johnson was met with massive backlash for taking risks with The Last Jedi. And somehow Han Solo - the roguish Star Wars hellion famous for breaking all the rules - finds himself in a feel-good movie that doesn't break any.

Variety sums it all up rather well, however: "Though burdened with a slow start and enough thirsty fan-service to power Comic-Con's Hall H for a decade, it has a kicky, kinetic heist movie at its heart, and its action sequences are machine-tooled spectacles of the first order".

As far back as he can remember, Redmond Bacon always wanted to be a film critic.
