Thandie Newton honors Black Star Wars characters with 'Solo' premiere dress

It's a good thing, then, that the movie remains at least entertaining enough to keep one engaged through all the rote story beats of learning how Han Solo acquired the Millennium Falcon or met Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian.

The film is set to hit theaters May 25. But he gets better along with the movie, which features so many callbacks to earlier films that it's hard to imagine any "Star Wars" fan not feeling duty-bound to see it, even allowing for its shortcomings.

"We can tell that the film is bound eventually to turn into a tale of plucky rebels taking on oppressive overlords". And where did he get his blaster? There's no arguing that the actors are a likable crew, even if Harrelson, Glover and Bettany are the only three who don't play it safe.

Five Top Islamic State Commanders Captured
The ISIS leaders who were apprehended do not include al-Baghdadi, a senior US official confirmed to CBS News' Margaret Brennan. The militant group swept into Iraq in the summer of 2014, taking control of almost a third of the country.

For some reason, Kathleen Kennedy and Lucasfilm are keeping their Sabacc cards to their chest on Kenobi, but for Lando Calrissian, they neglect in using their poker face, their poker face - muh muh muh muh. But only a glimmer of the hardassed charmer that Harrison Ford IMMORTALIZED finds its way into this episode. "Howard and [screenwriters Lawrence and Jon Kasdan] play the series game without ever raising the stakes, defaulting to tiresome and dutiful when they might have blasted off into creative anarchy". A lot of this was because of the character of Han Solo; he had the coolest ship, he was charming and amusing, and his best friend was a giant bear dog who could rip people's arms out of their sockets. It's just yet another interesting connection to the Star Wars lore, leaving more possibilities for story in the future, while giving Davis a more substantial part in the ongoing narrative. It's wonderful how much just playing Star Wars music can make nearly any roughly assembled scene work on a visceral and emotional level - and Solo seems to know that, relying on sentimentality and a shorthand understanding of this universe and its legacy characters to paper over its narrative defects. It just explains how he got his stuff. Well, it's not impossible that Lando's film could be in 2020, with Obi-Wan's standalone following in 2021, as ComicBook also acknowledges. "He would come in and he goes uncredited, but he loves it and the company is smart enough to bring him and not only play a character, but to help with coaching and setting up and figuring out some of the behaviors".

While doubts have swirled around Alden Ehrenreich, who takes on the title character, along with behind-the-scenes issues and questions as to the "point" of the movie, Glover's Lando has looked every bit as cool and charming as Billy Dee Williams' version, something the reviews have since confirmed.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge as a droid too earned plaudits. While all the films in the original trilogy - and even The Phantom Menace - could all be enjoyed on their own, much of the pleasures of Solo is dependent on prior knowledge of who these characters are and who they will become. "Most importantly, Han has his first encounter with the prototypical Allied resistance against the Empire".
