While Deadpool 2 will take center stage this weekend at the box-office, at least some of the attention should shift toward Solo: A Star Wars Story. The film is currently sitting at 72% on RottenTomatoes, just a few points shy of being certified fresh. Actor Paul Bettany, who plays gangster Dryden Vos in the film, recently spoke with ComingSoon, and reminisced about the first time he watched the very first Star Wars film, A New Hope.
“It changed my life and I saw it twice in the first week and I could not believe what I was looking at. It took, It took me to another universe from a really, gray, 70s, wet, London and took me to this you know extraordinary place where you know a kid could you know an adventure.”

The first time one sees Star Wars is truly a special experience, though it means far more to some than to others, it’s something most fans will always remember fondly as Bettany appears to do. It also must be great for Bettany, who was so amazed by the original Star Wars to now be appearing alongside one of the characters he watched as a child.
Solo: A Star Wars Story opens next Friday, May 25.
