The Super Bowl trailer was meh, but this new trailer sealed the deal.

Coming from someone that actually found things I liked in TLJ, I'll charitably say that this movie seems . . . inessential. This is a soft pass for me.

It looks alright...writing this movie off completely before even watching it just because you didn't like TLJ just seems silly to me (and I didn't even rate TLJ that high), anyway...


I was already planning to not go to the cinema for it to boycot Disney, but seeing it's bad makes it all the easier.
I'm not writing the movie off till I see it (long long time from now), but as far as the trailer go, the projection is it's terrible. And I wont spend my cash on it.
Not going to fall for that one again.

Anyone notice how the Falcon looks completely different? Never knew it had a different shape.

I went back and rewatched and saw it this time. Seems absurd to change the shape of the Falcon, especially when the shape is part of what makes it so beloved.

It doesn't have a new shape. The only difference is that the empty part between the front mandibles is now filled out with a freight container or something. (And the radar dish is different.)

The movie looks good, but that Han actor doesn't do it for me at all.

That was my assumption as well, but it seems like a waste to do this. Was it really necessary to add that for this movie? I get the EU lore, but based on the past two Epsiodes, are they even going to be able to explain why the change took place? And will the audience be able to understand it?

 

Maybe this will the the new "Mighty Merchandise Millennium Falcon!"

He'll probably drop the cargo at the first sign of Imperial Cruisers.

If you were holding out any hope for this... Rian Johnson just came out and said he loved it.

So yeah... it's gonna suck.

(Are they activelly sabotaging this thing or what?)

I don't think just because Rian Johnson likes something that it's going to suck. However, this does seem to be one of those "argument from authority" endorsements, which of course have mixed results in the past (mostly bad though).

 

I have about as much hope as I did before - that it might be entertaining and I'll get my Daenerys Targaryen fix for the year

Two thoughts:

 

1) They should have named in "Gone in 12 Parsecs"

 

 

THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN SO COOL

 

I'm a TLJ-lover, but I'm in the same boat as y'all about the meh-ness of this trailer.

We by no means should be judging something before the final product is released, that's asinine. Let me say this though, I certainly don't hold much hope for this movie.

I somehow got a feeling it's going to be more of a  Fast and Furious type movie and not an actual Star Wars movie.

How does that even matter though. Can you seriously imagine anyone involved with Star Wars coming out and saying "yeah Solo movie is kinda meh"? He's contractually obligated to say he liked it.

That gives me a little faith in George Lucas, perhaps he's supposed to say he likes all the new Disney movies even though he probably agree's with the rest of us on them.

On one hand, you would think with the TLJ response someone would go out "you should probably shut up" rather than "yeah, let's have this guy PR our next movie, that's a GREAT idea."
Sounds like LucasFilm is a touch out of reality (as if JJ's response wasn't bad enough) which is very troubling indeed.

I don't know where he said that. I assume somebody asked him and he had to give some answer. And obviously he's gonna be asked and talk about star wars, that's his job.

There's nothing more meaningless than people involved with a movie saying it's going to be good.

More Solo news... and it isn't good.
LucasFilm / Disney have been found out plagiarising the promo posters;

EDIT:
Seems the Facebook post of the artist I linked is deleted 0_o
Plenty of articles about it left on the web though, like;

The official trailer has been released:

 

 

Honestly, I'm just not hyped for this at all. Really not a fan of the guy playing Han, minus his one quip in the trailer to Chewbacca: "Yeah, well, what do you know?" he just does not feel like Han Solo to me, look-wise sure, but not getting the vibe from him. The only redeeming factor I can say so far is that Donald Glover looks SPOT ON for Lando.
