Solo (SPOILER FREE)
« on: January 8, 2018, 03:09 PM »
I know we're all scratching our heads as to if Solo will still come out in May of this year or get pushed out, but assuming that it is coming out in May, when do you think we would find this out and see a trailer? 

I get the thought that they want to let TLJ have some room to run on its own without confusing viewers with another pending option, but at some point they'll need to start promoting this movie. 

Its hard for me to believe they could wait until after mid-February to start promoting this, but I'm no Hollywood expert.

Thoughts?

I just wanted to say I'm annoyed with all the Lego leak pictures on site's front pages.

I just read today that the latest rumor is that the trailer will debut this Friday on Good Morning America. Personally I'm looking forward to seeing a look at this. Still not sure how it will be seeing someone other than Harrison Ford in the role, but I've always wanted to see "further adventures" of Han and Chewie.

When I went to see TLJ last month, the lobby poster spot that *had* been TLJ's was now occupied by the teaser poster for "Solo" and said May 25th 2018 on it. I took it as confirmed by that.

Deadpool moved up to the weekend before Solo.

They are sooo gonna push back Solo's release.

Love the "teaser posters" posted on SW.com.  I hope they make these available for sale at some point.

Some character names have been added to the IMDB page for Solo.  And there are now names for the characters played by Woody Harrelson (Tobias Beckett), Thandie Newton (Val) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (L3-37). Thereís no name for Paul Bettanyís character yet.

From the EW article:

"The wannabe smuggler will also face career crooks Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson), blaster-toting Val (Thandie Newton), and crime boss Dryden Vos (played by Paul Bettany)."


Cue the "Quinlon Vos" rumors in 3...2...1...  :D

Initial reactions from people who attended last night's premier seem to be very positive.  Although now I am EXTREMELY wary of possible spoilers.

Iím looking forward to seeing this.  Also, Iím letting up on my only wanting to see a Han Solo portrayed by Harrison Ford.

We didnít see a whole lot complaints of an Indiana Jones portrayed by Sean Patrick Flannery.

I've definitely seen some elements of ANH Han Solo in some of the clips of Alden Ehrenreich in SOLO.  And I'm definitely liking what I've seen of Donald Glover as Lando.  I think he gets the character.  And the fact that they turned Lando's pronunciation of "Han" into a story thing is pretty cool on it's own.

Is it really possible for 10,000+ IMDb raters to have seen "Solo" already?
