Following yesterday's TV spot [watch it here], director Ron Howard took to Instagram to share a new image from Solo: A Star Wars Story which features Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon; take a look here...

The ad spot opens with a different part of the train heist that we saw in the last trailer. We see a rocket being fired from a raised platform. We even get to see a brief moment where Han Solo learns Chewie's name.

There's also a large focus on gambling in the spot, as we see money moving around a table a lot and Han apparently playing poker against somebody. The video shows the acquaintance of the ex-pilot of the spaceship Millennium Falcon Han Solo Chewbacca and a flight engineer. In the clip, Han says tells Chewie: "You think everything sounds like a bad idea", which, if you're traveling with Han is likely true so can't blame Chewie for that one.

Han and Chewbacca have always interacted like an old married couple and it seems like that started very early. For what it's worth, as it regards Han Solo, he's right a lot of the time.
