Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

heh yea Hugh it was so fantastic all the chinese cinemas pulled it inside of two weeks, despite poking in a chinese actress to keep them all warm and fuzzy.

Wonder how much of that 1.3 billion was spent on the marketing

Well I and most people I spoke to about TLJ enjoyed it. People moaned that TFA was a rehash and almost the same as ANH. That when they made a film that was different everyone moaned that it wasn't the same lol.

I do hope this Solo movie is good.

It has every chance of being one of the best. A story of a rebel becoming a REBEL!

That's because the original trilogy wasn't allowed to be released in China at the time, so they don't have the background/back story that the rest of the world has.

Re the marketing budget - nice try, but nobody spends a billion dollars on marketing...

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

This is not about TLJ, if you want to bitch about that, use its thread.

The trailer looks good to me, nothing in there to put me off going to see it.

the egg is on your face Paul was right first time round. Its with the apostrophe means belonging to and in this context we are referring to the thread belonging to The Last Jedi and "its" thread. It's is an abbreviation of "it is" and we are not saying "it is thread".

I was enthusiastic this morning having watched the teaser of the teaser but now that I have seen Han Solo I am less so. He doesn't need to be Harrison Ford but in the few seconds they have shown us Han just doesn't feel right with the mannerisms and the way he talks. Yes this is a standalone film but you can't start from scratch and reinvent the character because he is based on something billions of people know. Everyone now and again actors come into new series/movies and play dumb thinking that they are offering a fresh perspective on something (Torri Higginson comes to mind with Stargate Atlantis, she knew sweet FA) but in this instance you would have thought that even if the studio didn't make you do it, as an actor you would want to sit down and watch the original trilogy over and over again so you could mimic Han Solo as much as possible in the way you talk, move your body, hold you gun and everything. I understand why they thought his acting was wooden.

I'll still go and see it because it is a sci-fi action but atm je ne suis pas impressed.

Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

I think it is fantastic news and a very clever move by Lucas Film. I they have been paid a small fortune for it. The sad thing is that I think it is going to create two different standards like the original trilogy and the prequel trilogy. I know you'll all you disagree with me but I can see the Rian Johnson trilogy being carp and the Weiss & Benioff trilogy being out of this world.
