Press Junket Potluck: The Solo cast & crew members fly together to tell this Star Wars Story

Film Flam Flummox


The hotly anticipated Star Wars universe spin-off/prequel Solo: A Star Wars Story had its most splashy debut on the world cinema stage earlier today with a gala screening at the Cannes Film Festival, but director Ron Howard and cast members Alden Ehrenreich (Han Solo), Donald Glover (Lando Calrissian), Emilia Clarke (Qi'ra), Woody Harrelson (Tobias Beckett), Thandie Newton (Val), Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca), Paul Bettany (Dryden Vos), and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (L3-37); and screenwriters Lawrence Kasdan and Jonathan Kasdan first faced the international media this past weekend at the Pasadena Convention Center, site of the film's global press conference. Below is complete video of the entire spirited event, as cast and crew candidly shared their reflections on the film's production and their thoughts on the ageless and ever-expanding long ago galaxy far, far away.


Solo: A Star Wars Story opens on Friday, May 25, with special preview showings the evening of Thursday, May 24, in cinemas nationwide from Walt Disney Studios.

Press Junket Potluck: Kids ask the darndest things to the Show Dogs cast

Film Flam Flummox


In a typically crowded summer movie season that has already seen a big-budget blockbuster shatter global box office records, those behind more underdog (bad pun intended) wide releases such as the talking dog comedy Show Dogs cannot be blamed for trying some more offbeat promotional tactics to help get a leg up from the rest of the pack. And so on the morning of Saturday, May 5, Global Road Entertainment made the atypical move of holding the film's traditional press conference right before its big red carpet world premiere screening event, right at cinema itself, the TCL Chinese 6 Theatres in Hollywood. But even more unusual was the angle of the press conference, which encouraged the accompanying children of attending journalists to ask stars Will Arnett, Natasha Lyonne, and Gabriel Iglesias the questions themselves--and kids being their honest, innocently unfiltered selves, paired with a game, good-humored trio such as these three actors, resulted in a press conference that was indeed far more entertaining and memorable than its promotional ritual ilk. Words fail to do justice to the experience, so watch below as Arnett, Lyonne, Iglesias, and director Raja Gosnell brave the comic unpredictability of the inquisitive youth.


Show Dogs opens this Friday, May 14, in cinemas nationwide, from Global Road Entertainment.
