'Solo' sputters in takeoff at box office with US$83.3M

'Solo' sputters in takeoff at box office with US$83.3M

The Force was weak with "Solo". The film marks the fourth disappointment of the new Star Wars movies under Kathleen Kennedy, who comes off the disaster that was Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is probably a big factor why Han Solo failed as well. Star Wars: The Last Jedi was very bad and Han Solo comes off as "meh", so why should I bother going to see it? Box Office Mojo was predicting a three-day tally of $108 million.

Being a spinoff movie, Solo was never going to be able to make as much as The Force Awakens or The Last Jedi. Internationally the film has brought in an estimated $65 million for the weekend, making its three day global total $148 million. Earlier in the week, it was predicted that the film could earn as much as $130 million to $150 million during its debut weekend.

Solo: A Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Woody Harrelson, Paul Bettany, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Jon Favreau. It is the second A Star Wars Story film to be released by Disney and Lucasfilm, but the first to specifically focus on an original trilogy character.

The movie opened in nearly 4,400 North American locations. While Solo establishes Qi'ra's past with Han on their homeworld, Corellia, it also leaves several aspects of her history to be revealed at a later time. That's how we ended up with a sequel to Pacific Rim, for example.

Real celebrate hat-trick of Champions League titles
Some of the European nights have been great and we will remember that when the pain of this defeat subsides. "It's unfortunate. We came back really quick and then a wonderful goal from Bale , and then the third goal was really hard for us".

China, set to become the biggest movie market in the world, has been a savior for franchises that have been less well-received in the US, but not so for "Star Wars". This installment collected just $10.1 million over the weekend, Disney said. Let us know in the comment section below! These are the Star Wars games we wished we could have played. The film made $10.3 million in the region.

Has Hollywood hit "Star Wars" overload?

Opening over the Memorial Day weekend, "Star Wars" was thrown headfirst into the cutthroat summer movie season (hits "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Deadpool 2" being the main combatants). The rest of the top five includes Avengers: Infinity War ($21 million, $605 million total domestic, $1.7 billion total worldwide), Book Club ($12 million, $22 million total) and Life of the Party ($6 million, $33 million total). That is also at a budget far less than Solo, which after reshoots is speculated to be at $250 million (although some have claimed without sourcing it is upwards of $300 million). Internationally the film added another $32.5 million putting its global total at $1.9 billion, making it the highest grossing MCU film by almost $400 million.
