TV & FILM
brian-mcgee - May 4, 2018
We all know that Han won the Millennium Falcon from Lando in a game of sabacc, but how did it all go down? What was the hand he used to win? Did Han cheat Lando out of it with unfair tactics? These many questions are certain to be answered in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story, because I guess we just HAD to find out all of this crap, didn't we?
It's hard not to look down on Solo. It didn't appear to be a priority for anyone until they found out that Lord & Miller were steering it in a direction they didn't like and shut things down. When the whole thing started up again with Opie at the helm, it took on this level of seriousness that rubbed me the wrong way. It's like they want you to know that it's not going to be another "fan film," but rather a serious look at one of Star Wars' most iconic characters.
Maybe I'm wrong, and lord knows I love being proven wrong by a great film, but there's nothing about Solo that leads me to believe it can do anything but exceed our very, very low expectations for it. Fingers crossed that happens three weeks from today when it hits theaters.
