DEADLINEEXCLUSIVE: Solo: A Star Wars Story will make its debut at the Cannes Film Festival, Deadline has learned.

The festival still is finalizing its competition film roster, but organizers won’t find a bigger film than this one. Sources said that the Lucasfilm origin story will premiere in a special screening May 15, before the picture makes its global premiere May 25. The Ron Howard-directed origin story stars Alden Ehrenreich as the young Han Solo, the role made famous by Harrison Ford. Donald Glover plays Lando Calrissian, and Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Paul Bettany and Thandie Newton also star.

The Cannes roster has been the subject of wide speculation, and the festival announced this morning that the Javier Bardem-Penelope Cruz drama Everybody Knows will be the opening-night film, directed by Asghar Farhadi. That and numerous other films have been rumored for weeks, but The Force being with Cannes is a big surprise. Stay tuned. Disney didn’t respond to an inquiry.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLYGame of Thrones fans know her as Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, rightful heir to the Iron Throne, rightful Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Protector of the Seven Kingdoms, the Mother of Dragons, the Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, the Unburnt, the Breaker of Chains.

Star Wars fans will come to know Emilia Clarke only as: Qi’ra.

This is a character who doesn’t want her full resume out there. She’s a woman of shadows, of secrecy. She’s a woman of many identities, the truest ones hidden away and only visible to those she trusts, which may be no one.

She’s also one of the primary forces that shape the young smuggler we meet in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

As part of Entertainment Weekly’s cover story about the May 25 movie, we caught up with Clarke to discuss what we need to know about this galactic femme fatale.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Are you currently shooting the final season of Game of Thrones?
EMILIA CLARKE: Technically I am currently shooting Game of Thrones. But right now I am in Rome shooting a D&G campaign. So sort of a mixture of the two.

Sounds like a busy time, so thanks for talking to me about Qi’ra. She and Han Solo go back to their childhoods, so can you characterize the setup of their relationship?
Well, they grew up as comrades, essentially. They grew up as pals, as partners in crime. There is obviously the romantic side of things. But they grew up together. So they were kids together. And the beautiful thing about this Han Solo story is it’s highlighting all of the most brilliant aspects of Han Solo the character and characterizing those aspects in characters that he meets on his journey to becoming who he is.

These people all represent different sides of who he becomes?
That’s kind of the story, really. You are seeing all of these different elements that make up who he is through the people and the interactions and the relationships just as we all do as human beings. We are simply the embodiment of our experiences, essentially.

They’re guiding him, inspiring him. Maybe corrupting him?
You see the beginnings of him, this loveable rogue. You get it fine-tuned throughout these relationships, and Qi’ra is one of those relationships that has an impact on him as a character. I mean, hopefully [laughs] — if I have done my job. And within that relationship, the thing that that you see with Qi’ra is that she an enigma.

So through her, he learns not to show his cards to people.
She is a little bit of a tough one to get a hold of, really. There is this underlying joy in an origin story because you know where they end up. And Qi’ra is nowhere to be seen, so … something has happened! [Laughs] You know what I mean?

The film will give us a reason why he doesn’t talk about her?
Something must happened to affect him as a person, but for us fans not to know about her. Twists happen, and there is this great idea of trust — and who do you trust and how do you trust? And which side of the tracks are either character from — or going to?

The filmmakers described her as a femme fatale in this movie that is partly a film noir.
It is. Mystery. There is a thing throughout the relationship you just can’t put your finger on. And that’s Qi’ra. Every time you think you have got her number you realize you haven’t at all. [Laughs] Which is really hard to play. The goal is that the shadow of Qi’ra is there in Han as a character that we know. This girl is another texture that makes up who he is when we first meet him.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY“You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon?”

Those words from Han Solo in 1977’s original Star Wars could easily be the tagline for the new standalone film Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Lucasfilm released a plot synopsis for the May 25 film that sheds a little more light on the story, which takes place several years before Han had his fateful meeting with Luke Skywalker and Ben Kenobi in that Tatooine cantina.

Here’s how the studio describes it:

“Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.”

Hail, Caesar! actor Alden Ehrenreich is taking on the role originated by Harrison Ford, while Atlanta‘s Donald Glover is slipping into the Lando Calrissian cape.

The movie costars Thandie Newton and Emilia Clarke in unspecified roles, Woody Harrelson plays a mentor figure, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (writer-star of Fleabag) will play a performance-capture character.

The Empire Strikes Back and The Force Awakens screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan wrote Solo with his son Jon Kasdan (The First Time). And Ron Howard took over directing duties after The LEGO Movie filmmakers Chris Miller and Phil Lord were fired midway through the shoot amid creative disputes with Lucasfilm.

A trailer for Solo is expected in the weeks ahead, along with more details about what parts of the galaxy we can expect the scoundrel to traverse. (source)

The very first trailer for Emilia’s new movie Voice from the Stone is finally here! The movie looks so GOOD but also incredibly creepy! I can’t wait to see it! And it was also filmed in Italy – in Tuscany which is a beautiful region. Be sure to go see it in theatre if you can, or buy the digital HD version (like me!)

USA TODAY – Emilia Clarke has faced down her share of deadly screen foes as Sarah Connor in Terminator Genisys and Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones.

It’s a different story when the British actress is placed in a beautiful but moody Italian castle, including one creepy room featuring a real hawk, for the supernatural thriller Voice from the Stone. Even Clarke got a little freaked out.

“That hawk never stopped making me scream,” says Clarke, 30. “Oh, man, the castle we filmed in was scary. I don’t believe in ghosts but if there was anything to make me question that, it was shooting there at night.”

Clarke survived the haunting ordeal of making the movie, which reveals its first trailer at usatoday.com before arriving in theaters (it’s simultaneously available via video on demand and digital HD) April 28.

The story marks director Eric Howell’s four-year journey to bring what he calls an “Hitchcockian fairy tale,” based on the 1996 novel of the same name by Silvio Raffo, to the screen. Howell’s prospects for getting his first feature off the ground were boosted significantly by bringing aboard Clarke, the Game of Thrones standout who propelled the love story in last year’s romantic hit Me Before You.

Clarke says the script “stole her heart” and she jumped to play Verena, a young nurse who specializes in helping children deal with trauma in 1950s Tuscany. Verena is hired to work with a young boy named Jakob (Edward Dring), who is so distraught by the sudden death of his mother, a renowned pianist, that he has stopped speaking.

This is no Mary Poppins: Verena has to work with Jakob’s increasingly erratic behavior and belief that his deceased mother is speaking to him from the castle walls. Verena tries to flee the disintegrating situation, but her love for Jakob and her romantic relationship with his father Klaus (Marton Csokas) pull her back.

The house’s hold on Verena is “mixed in with all of the loneliness she has felt in her life as a nurse who is always moving from one family to another,” says Clarke. “It seems that happiness is only a family away.”

Shooting in the town of Siena in beautiful Tuscany and in another castle located in the Italian province of Viterbo, just outside Rome, made for idyllic settings.

“It was heaven on earth, for sure. It felt like I was on vacation every day,” says Clarke. “And, hello, two-hour lunches.”

Howell had his moment of reckoning when setting up Voice from the Stone‘s first shot in the beautiful light of a stunning 15th-century castle.

“You’ve spent all the time getting all the pieces together for the movie,” says Howell. “You’re picking the wardrobe, the hair, finding the perfect location, waiting for the light. And you turn the camera on as Emilia Clarke steps into the frame and you gasp. We realized in that moment we had something truly magical.” (source)
