A New ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Poster Is Revealed

Published

on


Lucasfilms continues its promotional run for its latest incursion into the Star Wars universe by releasing a new poster. French retailer E.Leclerc debuts the new poster for the Solo: A Star Wars Story, an upcoming Ron Howard-directed film centered on Han Solo. The film will be the second Star Wars anthology film following 2016’s Rogue One. It stars Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo and its cast includes Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke and more.

The new poster was unveiled amidst some controversy from the initial series of one-sheets. Allegations of plagiarism from a series of soul and funk music compilation album covers came about, and since then, the text and design that looked similar were removed from the artwork.

Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters on May 25th. Check out the new promo poster below.

English major. Lover of poetry, pink champagne, roses in bell jars, anything gilded and smallish nesting birds.

Jim Jones Says Supreme Owes Him a Percentage of Their Company

After professing his love for “Chicken Fried Rice” last week, Jim Jones is now wondering why he isn’t receiving any residuals from Supreme. Back in 2006, the iconic skate brand reportedly offered Jim Jones and Juelz Santana $14K USD for a photoshoot that eventually produced one of the brand’s most infamous, now highly-sought after shirts ever. When talking to Complex about the collaboration in 2016, Jones felt he helped Supreme reach the pinnacle of their success with that t-shirt and although no long-time deal was ever worked out, he felt they should’ve paid more homage.

“We might’ve had the hottest T-Shirt they ever did, but they ain’t paying homage. The way I take is that it was a business deal. It was great for the moment but I ain’t get no residuals off of it. You know what I mean? They ain’t paying me no money off of each shirt that they sold, so it is what it is.”

Now 12 years later, Supreme has grown to become a billion dollar company and now the “Once Upon a Time” rapper wants a piece of it. This weekend, Jones shared an image of Juelz Santana and himself taken from the 2006 Supreme photoshoot with a message underneath captioning, “They owe us piece of th[e] company rappers n my black people had no idea wht supreme was we didn’t even know wht they was they had tht bag and they new who dipset was lol #CultureCreators #TheSet #TBt.”

The last few months have been pretty tumultuous for Juelz Santana. Having turned himself in to the police for fleeing New Jersey’s Newark Airport after Transportation Security Administration discovered a loaded gun in his bag, the rapper has been allegedly bailed out of jail by his mother.

The $500,000 bond was secured on a collateral of his mother’s Englewood, New Jersey home. Currently, Santana has been ordered to surrender his passport and sport an ankle monitor until the date of his federal trial. ”I’m just happy to be in God’s graces,” the 36-year-old stated in a video taken outside the federal courthouse earlier today. “I was praying every day. He came through for me…just gotta do the right thing, do everything I need to do the right thing so I stay home.”
