You would think starring as Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones would be Emilia Clarke's biggest "OMG" moment - but the actress had more while filming Solo: A Star Wars Story!

Lucasfilm is aware that Donald Glover's charms shouldn't be contained to one Star Wars movie. The Lando hype continued as more teasers and stills were dropped, and according to critics who have seen the film already-including Vanity Fair's K. Austin Collins, Glover lives up to the hype. Last year, Get Out rode a wave of acclaim and box office success all the way to a Best Picture nomination. So you can bet Lucasfilm is looking to diversify their roster of lead characters by letting Lando Calrissian lead the way.

"Thandie had the brilliant idea to make a dress covered in a print with photos of iconic black @starwars characters", said Newton's stylist Erin Walsh as she captioned the images.

Meanwhile, there's also inspiration that can be drawn from a forthcoming Lando comic miniseries called Double or Nothing that features Donald Glover's likeness as Lando.

Oil gains while US crude's discount to Brent deepens
The immediate aftermath has seen tensions between Israel and Iran rise in Syria, already leading to one military clash. This is why the sanctions against Iran is going to impact Brent much more than it is going to impact WTI crude oil .

That's a correction on a quote that lit a fuse on the internet with rumors that Lando was getting his own film.

Further, referring to My Account in the settings, it says that users have full control over their data and how it can be used. Australian Privacy Foundation's head David Vaile noted that many mobile plans offer customers a few gigabytes of mobile data.

Overlaid atop a delicate floral motif are John Boyega's Finn, Forrest Whitaker's Saw Gerrera, Hugh Quarshie's Captain Panaka, Samuel L. Jackson's Mace Windu, and Billy Dee Williams's Lando Calrissian. Having those three together is a blast, and they need another movie together.
