OUT IN PETERBOROUGH & SPALDING THIS WEEK
SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY (12A) SHOWCASE CINEMA DE LUX PETERBOROUGH, FROM TODAY
The early reviews for this Star Wars spin-off has notched solid feedback – tagging it as a ‘fun’ space yarn, despite lacking a little depth – in a galaxy far, far away.
Oscar-winning director Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind) seems to have steadied the Millennium Falcon and pulled it safely away from the asteroid field that previous directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie) had left it floating in – after reportedly being fired deep into the film’s shoot due to creative differences.
This second ‘Star Wars Story’ movie follows the success of Rogue One, and like that, is a prequel to the original trilogy – by chronicling the twenty-something years of a younger Han Solo (the relatively-unknown Alden Ehrenreich).
During an adventure into a dark criminal underworld, Solo meets his equally infamous future co-pilot Chewbacca and encounters Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) years before joining the Rebellion – with Woody Harrelson and Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke joining the ride.
See next week’s Spalding Guardian for the full review.
