The latest edition of the Movie Show previews the Han Solo movie officially called Solo: A Star Wars Story. Doug and Steve review this movie and discuss how it figures into the larger Star Wars universe.
There are other movies that come out this week and the two go over the ones that dare to challenge Star Wars. Also, there is news about edits to the movie Show Dogs which made theatres happier and put it back in its rotation.
The big movie this week that is out is the Ryan Reynolds-fronted Deadpool 2. The second movie is just as the first with a lot of breaking the fourth-wall, and it earns its R rating with the violence in this follow up to the 2016 original.
In the top 10 for the week it is Avengers: Infinity War going strong for another week and seems to be on a path of destruction for all of the box office records. The Quiet place keeps chugging along and is in the top five again this week.
The first hour of the Movie Show with Doug Wright and Steve Salles gets going with a conversation about the upcoming shows this week, and also a conversation with Blake Anderson from Megaplex Theatres.
