Here's When The Solo: A Star Wars Story Review Embargo Lifts

Unlike previous Star Wars films released recently, the review embargo for Solo: A Star Wars Story will be lifted very early.

This will give the media a chance to write/record reviews for the movie more than a week before the film is released in cinemas worldwide.

As reported by Screen Rant, the official review embargo for Solo: A Star Wars Story lifts on Tuesday May 15th at 2pm PST. This coincides at the same time the movie makes its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in France.

The actual film itself won't be out in cinemas until May 25th in North America meaning reviews will be out ten days before release.

This is an interesting move because early review embargoes usually indicate a film studio is confident a movie will be reviewed really well.

There has been a lot of question marks over the film's quality mainly because it had a troubled production.

Original directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were fired to be replaced midway for Ron Howard. Not to mention some re-shoots changed a bit of the story and cast members.

Despite the troubled production, it looks like Solo: A Star Wars Story is the second most anticipated film of 2018 behind Avengers: Infinity War.

This is because pre-sales for Solo have exceeded Black Panther which is a film that opened with an impressive $202 million weekend.

With Box Office tracking, Solo: A Star Wars Story is expected to have a four day opening weekend of over $170 million in North America.

This number could get higher once the reviews come out which Disney/Lucasfilm expects to be really good at the moment.
