The final trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story was a released yesterday and it was packed out with plenty of incredible moments.
After repeated viewings of the trailer we’ve selected our top five moments from it. Check them out below:
5. Big Shot Gangster
Taking center stage in the new trailer is Paul Bettany’s interstellar gang lord Dryden Vos. This scarred up brusier certainly appears to be a vicious adversary and is a crucial part to the ‘job’ that Han and his mentor Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) are going to pull off. Bearing the mark of some pretty brutal treatment, Bettany appears to be channeling his inner Scarface here and it’s pretty clear that he’ll come to blows with Han more than once during the course of this film.
4. “Everything you’ve heard about me is true.”
Donald Glover is a performer to be all kinds of excited about and his turn as the galaxy’s most charming scoundrel Lando Calrissian is a performance to get excited for. Glover’s Calrissian has a daring confidence and sly charisma about himself and clearly likes being the smartest guy in the room. He also appears to be a guy who knows how to shake it, and as the owner of the Millennium Falcon will offer up plenty of advise to an impressionable Han.
3. “If you come with us, you’re in this life for good.”
While Han might be up for anything it’s made very clear to him that what he’s about to embark on something that will utterly change his life for good. There’s no coming back from the ‘job’ that he’s about pull, and what we might see is this youthful idealist change into the cynical mercenary that we first meet in A New Hope. While the events of Solo will ultimately make Han into the character we know and love, they’ll certainly come with a price.
2. Best Buds
But while this trailer will take us into some serious corners it’s also packed out with plenty of fun moments, including Han’s eternal friendship with his co-pilot Chewbacca. Solo’s a big film for these two best buds and it’ll be interesting to see how their relationship grew and developed in this early part of their lives together. Although in a funny anecdote it is revealed that Chewie is in fact 190 years old at the start of the film!!!
1. The Kessel Run?
But my favourite part of the trailer. Well, that has to be the scenes where Han is at the helm of the Falcon and is piloting it through a dangerous interstellar storm. But the question remains, is this in fact the Kessel Run? Holding a special place in Star Wars lore, the Kessel Run is a defining event in the Millennium Falcon’s legend and if in fact we are finally going to see it, well, it’ll certainly be a rush!
Solo: A Star Wars Story will be released in cinemas on May 24.
