Trade paper The Hollywood Reporter says that according to their industry insiders, the first footage from “Solo: A Star Wars Story” is expected to air during Super Bowl LII – a contrast to reports the other day which suggested it was unlikely.
Whether it could be the actual trailer, or a cut down 30-second TV spot of a longer trailer which would be attached to the release of “Black Panther,” is not clear. Disney has declined to comment regarding its Super Bowl plans but this has been floated as a possibility for some time.
The game is charging $5 million for a 30-second spot and studios who’ve agreed to that will be advertising the likes of “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” “Skyscraper,” the third “Cloverfield” film and “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” which are all expected to get trailers. In fact, ‘Fallen Kingdom’ is getting a whopping 90-second one. We’re also likely to get previews for “Avengers: Infinity War” and/or “A Wrinkle in Time”.
“Solo: A Star Wars Story” opens in late May.
