Solo A Star Wars Story premieres at Cannes 2018

Melissa Mc Carthy and Luke Benward in Life Of The Party

Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and risky criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes. Since 1977, we have been watching as Luke, Leia and Han have been fighting evil and saving the day (or at least trying to).

Though don't you be thinking this is the last you'll see of our old pals Han and Chewie, as Kennedy also teased more Han Solo movies. Han is a young adult and the ending leaves things vague enough that it's not easy to tell how much time passes between Solo's ending and A New Hope.

On Thursday, May 10, the stars of Solo: A Star Wars Story - including Emilia Clarke, who plays Qi'ra - walked the red carpet for the film's Hollywood premiere. When their paths cross again - this time at a cocktail bash hosted by arch-villain Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany) - the times, and the equations, have changed beyond recognition.

Some in the worldwide community believe Kim's commitment to close Punggye-ri is a welcome development. The country also vowed to stop testing missiles without notifying the global community Saturday.

Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian: "And Han also chances across a charismatic dandy-ish smuggler, gambler and flier called Lando Calrissian, a very amusing performance from Donald Glover".

I was looking forward to what Lord and Miller-who turned The LEGO Movie, inexplicably, into one of the most surprising creative triumphs of recent years-could do with a project of this scale. Given that the movie's score has already risen from 71 percent to 73 percent overnight, there is every chance it could still get there.

EHRENREICH: (As Han Solo) So this is Sabacc. The rest of the cast is very strong though. Everyone in the film wears different masks, and at one point a character removes theirs to reveal Warwick Davis, no makeup or alien costume to cover his face. Harrelson does a great job and Glover is a standout amongst a truly talented group.

Sharif's Mumbai attack statement 'incorrect, misleading': Pakistan civil-military brass
Explain it to me. "Why can't we complete the trial?" he had told Dawn newspaper. He said misunderstandings are removed in the light of the facts.

Newton plays Val, a member of Han Solo's crew, in the movie, which hits theaters on May 25. The creatures are intricate and detailed but one would expect no less from this franchise (especially after the CGI gaffs that were made in the 1990's). Howard's work has never had a readily identifiable style of its own, so it makes sense that he would be capable of adhering to the established look and feel of the "Star Wars" franchise. There is a lot of fancy flying and gun fighting but not really a lightsaber to be found.

Alden Ehrenreich is receiving plenty of plaudits for his performance in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Without spoiling Solo: A Star Wars Story, there are a couple threads left dangling that could lead to possible sequels featuring Han Solo and Chewbacca.

India's stubbornness hampered proceedings of Mumbai attacks case: Nisar
He called Nawaz Sharif a "modern-day Mir Jafar, who collaborated with the British to enslave his nation for personal gains". We have always cooperated with India over information sharing pertaining to all incidents of terrorism", Nisar added.

The video [see below] starts off with a shot of Han (Alden Ehrenreich) hanging his lucky dice on a speeder auto. Because Star Wars is held in such high regard in our culture-it's the most popular film franchise of all-time, hands down-there is a thirst among the fanbase for anything Star Wars related, and a desire by executives to keep the merry-go-round going.
