No one can't predict things with 100% accuracy, but that doesn't stop anyone from trying. And from "unaided awareness" to "definite interest," movie studios spend a lot of time and effort trying to gauge what an audience will do before they every do it. So, what are the predictions saying about the performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story? Punch it!

We've been talking this week about some of the films that Larry and Jon Kasdan were keeping in mind as they wrote the script for Solo: A Star Wars Story. But what about Ron Howard? Surely this supremely accomplished director had a few films in mind that might serve as useful touchpoints for his filming? Well, yes, of course! And we'll talk about two of them today: Bullitt, and Rush. Punch it!

There's a certain feeling in the relationship between "the kid" and Clint Eastwood in the movie Unforgiven, Jon Kasdan says, that he and his father Larry Kasdan were interested in when they were writing Solo: A Star Wars Story. The source of that info, an interview in Entertainment Weekly, can be misread as being about Clint Eastwood and his son, but it's actually about Eastwood and a wanna-be murderer who calls himself the Schofield Kid. How does this bear on the relationship between Tobias Beckett and Han Solo? That's what we're looking at today. Punch it!

Solo: A Star Wars Story had its world premiere last night in Los Angeles, and with that we begin our "Safe Week" period - actually, two weeks, considering Solo doesn't come out until the 25th. But that doesn't mean we don't have things to talk about regarding Solo - what the embargo date suggests, what the final runtime is, and much more. Punch it!

The swank nightclub-like scenes from Solo: A Star Wars Story, or the outdoor scenes of Beckett telling Han Solo how Beckett's putting together a crew - any chance those are happening on Cantonica? Just a pet theory of mine, and as such, I'm taking a closer look at the planet and its famous casino, Canto Bight, in this week's series of podcasts. Today we start with "Rules of the Game" by Saladin Ahmed. Punch it!

More video! Lucasfilm released a tour of the swank inside of Lando's Falcon, led by none other than Donald Glover, and an interview with Solo: A Star Wars Story Ron Howard. That latter video sheds light on Clint Howard's appearance in the movie, and equally as important, the uniqueness of what goes into making a Star Wars movie. Punch it!

That and more on the show today as we discuss the seven top takeaways from the new Solo: A Star Wars Story behind the scenes featurette released on Sunday. Punch it!

There's no big midnight toy event for the Solo: A Star Wars Story movie release this time around. Instead, the toys have been revealed in a post on StarWars.com. And as we've done for previous movie releases, we're checking the toys out to find out what they might have to tell us about the upcoming movie. One thing off the top: the way we thought things are going to go down on Mimban has been thrown into uncertainty... Punch it!

In the first commercial, we heard young Han Solo boast that he would become the best pilot in the galaxy. Then in the teaser, Qi'ra told us she might be the only person who knows what Han really is. Finally, in the full trailer, we have a more fully formed version of the hero from Solo: A Star Wars Story. Punch it!

We got to hear Han and Tobias in the Super Bowl commercial. We got to hear Qi'ra in the teaser that followed. But we didn't get to hear anything Donald Glover said as Lando until the most recent trailer. (Yes, there was indistinct yelling in the teaser, but that doesn't really count, now does it.) But even the non-verbal - and the yelling - moments tell us a few things about the young man in Solo: A Star Wars Story, as well as some interviews he's given. And the advice he got from Billy Dee Williams is downright brilliant. Punch it!

It's all about the inferences right now. Emilia Clarke's dialogue as Qi'ra in the Solo: A Star Wars Story footage we've seen so far - as well as one of her costumes - hints at how she and Han left things from their early days, and how well one of their adventures turned out. Punch it!

Drawing from interviews with Ron Howard, Larry Kasdan, and Jon Kasdan, as well as the Super Bowl commercial, teaser, and trailer, here's what we know so far (with no spoilers!) about Tobias Beckett, the mentor character played by Woody Harrelson in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Especially of note: One dialogue exchange that could hint at a love triangle dilemma with Qi-ra, Tobias, and Han... Punch it!

From Han's early days as a Corellian ne'er-do-well, to his time in service of the Empire; from a potential posting on Mimban where he meets Chewie, to reconnecting with Qi'ra; from high-stakes gambling dens to high-stakes heists; all that, and so much more, in what's likely the final trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Our seven top takeaways are here... Punch it!

Back in March 2017, Bob Iger said four very crucial things about Solo: A Star Wars Story. This was back before they had even announced the name of the movie! Iger revealed the timeline of the movie; the fact that he'd be "acquiring a certain vehicle and meeting a certain Wookiee"; and that we'd learn how "he got his name." Well, now, with all the footage and the Entertainment Weekly features, we can start fleshing out the details of Iger's points. Punch it!

Two planets in Solo: A Star Wars Story have been confirmed outright: Corellia (Han's homeworld), and Mimban, the swamp planet you may remember from the earliest days of the Expanded Universe. A third one has been strongly hinted at: Kessel, of the infamous spice mines. Now, thanks to the commercial and the teaser for Solo - and one other source we've talked about before - we now have information that puts the planet total anywhere between four and six (with more potentially to come). Punch it!

Han Solo is surrounded by strong women in Solo: A Star Wars Story ... even if one of those "women" is a droid with a female personality. Still counts. :-) In today's podcast, I'm digging into the details shared about Qi'ra (Emilia Clarke), Val (Thandie Newton) and L3-37 (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) in the Entertainment Weekly cover story on Solo: A Star Wars Story. I'm focusing on the details I think you'll find to be the most interesting, and as it turns out, Emilia Clarke has a lot to say not just about Qi'ra, but about Han Solo and the movie itself. Punch it!

Today, revisiting the whole director change, and the unexpected sources of inspiration and contribution to the movie - including the advice given by Harrison Ford and also by the man who invented this whole crazy mixed-up galaxy to begin with, George Lucas.

The commercial, the trailer, the performance of Alden Ehrenreich, the "troubled" production ... these are all topics up for discussion when I join Todd van der Heyden from CTV News in Toronto to talk about Solo: A Star Wars Story.

He didn't utter a line of dialogue, and appeared in only five shots in the commercial and the teaser for Solo: A Star Wars Story. What is it about Donald Glover's performance as Lando Calrissian that they're trying to hide form us??? Just kidding, of course. It is kind of funny that no one complained about that, though ... but then again, Lucasfilm may have followed the "less is more" strategy that dates all the way back to Boba Fett and Aurra Sing. And when you think about it, there were a couple of signature Lando elements in even those brief snippets. Punch it!

Well, we've had our first extended experience of Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, and what can we glean from it? For one thing, he's not the Han Solo we meet in the cantina on Tatooine because he hasn't become that person yet. So what we're hearing in the commercial and the teaser for Solo: A Star Wars Story is the forming of that scoundrel. And in the process, we're getting a look at the depths of the character - and possibly a deeper character than we expected him to be. Punch it!

Hot on the heels of the teaser commercial released during Super Bowl Sunday, the good folks at Lucasfilm gave us a full teaser trailer, released during Good Morning America. In addition to offering new footage, it also helps to expand our understanding of things we saw in the Super Bowl commercial. I'll be digging into that today, and sharing seven top takeaways from the teaser. Punch it!

You may have seen various media outlets reporting that the "studio" - aka Lucasfilm - has "confirmed" the appearance of the first Solo: A Star Wars Story on Good Morning America on Monday, February 5th. (Today!) But if you look at all of Lucasfilm's official channels, as of 1:30pm ET on Sunday there's been no such announcement at all. So where is this "news" coming from? Is it legit? And to add to the intrigue: Though they've yet to do a commercial during the Super Bowl, there's a rumor going around that they'll break that trend with a :45 second Solo spot. And Pablo Hidalgo hasn't tweeted has annual denial... Punch it!

Surprise! Lucasfilm released an official synopsis for Solo: A Star Wars Story today. What does it reveal about the movie that we didn't already know? I'm dissecting the 76-word statement and comparing it against what we already know about the movie thanks to Ron Howard's prolific social media posts. Punch it!

Fox moved Deadpool 2's release date from the week after Solo: A Star Wars Story to the week before it. Why does that give one box office expert a weird feeling? Also, the upcoming reshoots that aren't really "reshoots," per se, trailer anticipation, and some older news about a Star Wars legend contributing to the movie in this post-production update on Solo: A Star Wars Story. Punch it!

What a lovely way to wrap up principal photography on the previously untitled young Han Solo movie! Ron Howard makes it official - the title of the film is "Solo: A Star Wars Story." Punch it!
