Solo: A Star Wars Story is expected to open to general audiences on May 25, 2018.

Penelope Cruz and husband Javier Bardem's latest movie Everybody Knows is to open the Cannes Film Festival.

Will head the jury of Australian actress cate Blanchett.

The screening in the Grand Amphitheatre Lumière at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes promises to be an event for all fans of the saga and everyone in attendance.

According to Variety, this decision reflects the outlook of artistic director Thierry Fremaux, whose new aim is to kick off proceedings with films that merge a critically acclaimed auteur with an attractive, glamorous cast. The previous three Star Wars films - 2015's The Force Awakens, 2016's Rogue One and 2017's The Last Jedi - have had their world premieres in Los Angeles.
