    The first teaser aired last night during the Super Bowl. The first official trailer was released online this morning.

    What do you think of the film’s prospects?

    Personally, I think the film is going to have problems with critics and fans alike. Based on what I’ve seen in the teaser and the trailer, Alden Ehrenreich appears destined to become the new Hayden Christensen. He either cannot do a convincing impression of Harrison Ford (who is Han Solo) or isn’t even trying. I see a possible Worst Actor nomination for him at the 2019 Razzies.

    While it looks pretty, you cant just install generic guy #2 as a Harrison Ford stand in and with those crappy lines and not expect a disaster.

    It’s like everyone and everything looks good…except Han. But that’s a problem that they can’t fix. We could always be surprised, but I think they’ll always regret not casting Ansel Elgort.

    Ok so I got excited when I saw Chewwie and Lando but part of me immediately thought “People aren’t going to like this” and boy was I right. Glover got people excited but it looks like you said its Han Solo. Hard to get out of Ford’s shadow in that regard.

    This movie is so unnecessary.

    Ok so I saw this yesterday. This is very spoiler-ish. Look Away if you don’t want to see any. I repeat look away. Ok I warned you

    1)Alden Ehrenreich is awesome.
    2)Han was a flight cadet because of love. Explains why he was so hesitant/unwilling to say I love you to Leia at first.
    3)Donald Glover steals this movie from everyone. I NEED A LANDO SPIN OFF.
    4)The Millennium Falcon makes me happy.
    5)Qi’ra is annoying. I hate her.
    6)Darth Maul has a backstory……I almost died laughing when he popped up.
    7)Finally got to see how Han got the Millennium Falcon. Childhood checklist has something checked off.
    8) He is going to Tato0ine….so Solo 2: A Star Wars Movie? Bring on Jabba the Hutt.
    9)L3-37 is amazing. And annoying. Can we put her and R2 and C3PO in one scene together with BB8? That I would die for.
    10)Chewbacca is perfection in every movie he is in.

    All in all a very surprisingly great movie. My grade: A+

    A thoroughly enjoyable film, the epitome of a romp. No real praises to sing as Howard did his usual thing here, Glover and Harrelson were just okay, and the plot is inconsequential. I will say that Alden Ehrenreich did deliver a star-making turn and I think he could potentially become a premier actor.

    Grade: B

    As for the disappointing box office numbers, is there any surprise? This never felt ‘big’ to me…the general hype around Solo was more of a shrug. What I am surprised about is the $250 million production budget – breaking even will be a hurdle if this doesn’t hold up in the coming weeks.

    I’ve heard that Donald Glover is the consensus favorite among fans and non-fans of Star Wars.

    Clarke was the best part of the movie. It just makes me very upset that no one knows how to use the Mother of Dragons. It’s so simple but no one has done it right yet.

    We have officially hit franchise fatigue…with superfluous Star Wars origin stories.

    I was suprised by how good this movie was, i really enjoyed it. i think its the best of the new star wars movies. I think Solo is suffering the backlash of the last jedi, which is unfortunately. I personally didnt like force awakens, hated the last jedi and liked rouge one, but i loved Solo. The cast was amazing, from woody harrison and donald glover to Alden Ehrenreich. Alden blew mw away, he was totally believable as young han solo, which i didnt think was going to happen, specially after those rumours he was struggeling. I guess at the end the bad rumours and the bad fallout of the last jedi will define this movie, but i thought it was great.

    Just wait until we get the Watto origin story and the completely necessary (wink, wink) Nute Gunray origin story. Then fans will look at this Solo thing as if it is some sort of masterpiece by comparison.

    At least we are on the same page on hating The Last Jedi. How was Bradford Young’s Cinematography from Solo? It looked pretty cool from the trailers. Did Thandie Newton do anything memorable or badass, or did they waste her like I feared they would?
