“Assume everyone will betray you and you will never be disappointed.”
Those cynical but sage words from Garris Shrike (Woody Harrelson) seem to be repeated in one way or another over and over in Solo: A Star Wars Story which arrives on cinemas screens quite near us all in a few weeks’ time.
Taking on much the same gritty but playful tone as Rogue One: A Star Wars story, the latest standalone, non-trilogy tale in the franchise looks to have the goods and then some, impressive considering its somewhat rocky road to the finished swashbuckling product.
To help us appreciate just how good those goods in fact are, Film Threat aka James Darling (co-creator of Science vs. Cinema), who gave us The Force Awakens supercut, has stitched all the various trailer for Solo together to give us a grand, imaginative whole that succeeds in whetting your appetite for the origin treats to come.
Solo: A Star Wars Story opens 24 May UK and Australia and 25 May USA.
