Thandie Newton's afro was definitely a Miller/Lord decision, and it's things like that that make me deeply disappointed they were run out out of town on a rail. It still looks fun, but safe, focus-grouped fun that everyone can garner a vague simulacrum of the feeling of joy from.

You know you're in trouble when you can't even make a good trailer.

Donald Glover is not just going to steal this movie, he's already stolen the poster.

"Solo isnít a movie for the fans so much as at them, harnessing its makersí considerable skill and experience to gratify the urge for the familiar, with no pretense or aspiration of doing anything else."

So theoretically, all the "Wah, The Last Jedi didn't feel like a Star Wars movie" people should love this one, then.
