The marketing for Solo: A Star Wars Story has officially begun to ramp up and a few days ago they brought out a new poster for the film which actually is the greatest poster they’ve made so far. Here it is.
So this is the international poster for the movie and I love the Rogue One vibe it’s giving as it’s stacking all of the characters in a hierarchy type of fashion and it’s kind of really cool. I also like the sunrise color scheme. It hints that the dawn of a new big shot in town is coming and that will obviously be Han Solo. Awesome! I also love seeing all of the characters as well. It’s obvious that the four most important characters will be Han, Qi’Ra, Chewbacca, and Lando, which is super exciting. I have to admit, this poster is getting me a little pumped for this movie.
I’ve also just recently gotten the main gist of the movie which is this; Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) is putting together a sort of Avengers of smugglers for a big-shot gangster, Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany) to perform a heist job that’ll obviously pay them a lot of money. That sounds ridiculously awesome because there’s never been a story like that in Star Wars before. Maybe this movie is going to be really good after all because that sounds like an awesome plot. And I’m sure this movie will be full of shocking-but-not-that-shocking betrayals that’ll reveal how Han truly became his namesake; Han Solo.
All in all, I’m actually starting to get excited for this movie. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day. May the Force be with you.
Last night during American Idol the second trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story finally debuted and for the most part, I enjoyed it. Check it out:
So, here’s how I feel about this trailer and what it means for the movie.
I LOVE Star Wars as you can probably tell from my blog but I’m also very picky as well. I love Star Wars when it’s great and I only like Star Wars when it’s kind of mediocre. This movie seems to revolve in the realm of being great and mediocre at the same time and this is why.
1. The Music
Music is highly important for movie trailers. Music mainly illustrates the tone of a film but it also can make or break a trailer. I feel that the music for this trailer both made and broke this trailer. In the teaser the music was my favorite aspect of the trailer, along with the visuals of course. In this trailer I like the music at first with that country-western tang at the beginning and then it gets a little, well, fast paced and regular. I’ve seen many trailers with this action-based music and for the most part those movies usually turned out to be alright but not great. Now this is Star Wars we’re talking about and I know this won’t be the actual music of the movie but the fact that they put it to the trailer is a tad bit worrying.

Avengers: Infinity War is getting closer and closer and with nearly three weeks left some more posters have come to satiate our thirst for the time being. These posters, however, are highlighting each superhero in their own awesome glory and I’m here to share with you the ten posters that really stood out to me. Enjoy!
Yay, it’s Scarlet Witch! I’m really excited to see her in this movie.
Woo, Iron Man is in the building! I mean, who doesn’t love Iron Man? And the cool thing about this poster is the up close look at his new suit. Ooh, I’m so excited to see what new tricks he will have up his sleeve.

With Avengers: Infinity War releasing into theaters less than a month away the marketing for the film is starting to ramp up which is beyond exciting and as part of that increase of publicity Marvel Studios has released five incredible new posters that’ll make you even more anxious for this film to come. So, with no further delay, here they are.
Thor and the Guardians of the Galaxy
First of all, I love the new version of Thor with his short hair and eye patch so it’s awesome seeing him. Secondly, it’s the Guardians of the Galaxy! Woo! I mean I would’ve never thought I would see a team-up as cool as Thor and the Guardians but now that it’s here and hopefully here to stay I can’t be happier. And then the color for the poster is purple, my favorite color, so that’s even more awesome. Gosh, I’m starting to get really ecstatic about this movie.

Over three weeks ago I wrote a post about who I felt was the true villain in The Last Jedi and at the end of the article I felt that, due to the movie’s events, Poe Dameron was the true antagonist of the movie and for several reasons. One of the biggest reasons why however is that Poe got hundreds of Resistance fighters killed due to his reckless actions. He wanted to be a hero several times and every time he thought he was doing something great he only made things much, much worse. Of course Kylo Ren is the main villain of the trilogy but for the majority of The Last Jedi he was treated as a partial-protagonist rather than the villain that he was in The Force Awakens. And now I have legitimate proof that Poe was regarded as one of the antagonists of the film. Look at this poster.
If you see where all of the major characters are placed where is Poe? On the villain side of the poster! When I first saw this poster I wondered why Poe was on the bad side but I figured it was simply designed this way so he’d be perfectly parallel with Finn but after watching the film I now understand the reasoning behind his placing on the poster.
I find this very interesting and it highlights how different The Last Jedi is compared to its predecessor. I mean when you’ve got Poe, one of the most heroic characters in The Force Awakens, considered as a villain in its sequel it shows how wildly different the movie’s tone was going to be. And it was.
That’s why I love Star Wars. There’s always something new to discover. I’m sure when I watch this movie again I’ll find many more hidden references and Easter eggs that I’ve missed before. I mean I still watch The Force Awakens and see new things. Well, that’s my latest discovery from The Last Jedi.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day. May the Force Be With You.
Solo: A Star Wars Story finally got two teaser trailers during the Super Bowl and Good Morning America and while they were everything that I was hoping for these teaser posters for the movie are a little…odd for me. This is why.
The Chewbacca Poster
Now this is the first poster and it of course highlights my favorite alien in Star Wars, Chewbacca. There’s nothing particularly special about this poster other than it has Chewie in it with his original, ragged look and his infamous crossbow. That’s always awesome.
The Lando Calrissean Poster
And then here is Lando with his suave self. Look at that yellow shirt paired with that dark cape. Not a lot of people can pull off a super yellow shirt like that in Star Wars without looking wack but that’s exactly why Lando is so cool. One thing he definitely has always had is style and Solo is definitely making us totally aware of that.

2017 was a fun year for movies and this year is going to be even better in terms of all of the incredible films that are coming out. And so, here are the movies I can’t wait to see this year. Enjoy!
When Black Panther debuted in Captain America: Civil War I was an immediate fan of this marvelous superhero. His suit was sleek and beautiful and his character was a perfect addition to the film. When I found out he was getting his own movie I was so excited! Now it’s coming out in little over a month and I can’t wait to see it break records left and right.
Next week there’s going to be a special preview of Black Panther during the College Football Championship and I believe that it’s probably just going to be an extended commercial but it if is something like an official sneak peek at the movie I’m going to be ecstatic. I can’t wait to see this movie!
