Journey Back To The Beginning Of Han’s Origin With Solo: A Star Wars Story Trailer Shots


You’ve seen the full teaser trailer and pored over all four character posters, but thanks to the folks over at Collider, we now have another Star Wars-released media dump for you to peruse. And it involves the galaxy’s greatest smuggler.

Yes, with the exception of Avengers: Infinity War, Solo: A Star Wars Story continues to be the biggest talking point coming out of Super Bowl LII, which brought forth the spinoff’s inaugural teaser before Good Morning America completed the one-two punch earlier this morning.

The result? Our first tangible preview of Ron Howard’s anthology pic, which is emerging from a fairly tumultuous spell in development. The much-touted departure of erstwhile directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller led many to fear that Han Solo’s origin movie was doomed, but as the following gallery attests, Solo: A Star Wars Story has arrived relatively unscathed. And if there’s one thing we’ve learned since Lucasfilm pulled the trigger, it’s that Bradford Young, cinematographer of Arrival and the DP on Solo, is the real MVP of this morning’s showcase.

Before Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia – before the Sarlacc Pit and Jabba the Hutt – there was Han, and we’ll be able to see his galactic origin story unfold once Solo: A Star Wars Story beams into theaters on May 25th. That’s only five short months after The Last Jedi, and marks the first Disney-backed Star Wars film not to be released at Christmas.

How will it fare at the global box office? Time will tell, though we imagine the Powers That Be are expecting its total gross to be similar to that of Rogue One ($1.056 billion) and not, say, The Force Awakens ($2.06 billion).
