Solo: A Star Wars Story opening weekend underwhelms

Most Fans Forgot Boba Fett Would Be Star Wars’ First Lead of Color & That’s a Problem

Solo: A Star Wars Story had a reported budget of $250m. The standalone adventure has been under a microscope throughout the past few months due to its troubled development process.

If you are aware of Solo's production issues, you would be surprised that the movie turned out to be this decent.

The previous three Star Wars films were all released in December.

I gave the Last Jedi a decent review when I watched a preview.

Fortunately, the large majority of concerns regarding the project were appeased when Solo flew into theaters.

Star Wars has transcended generations but when Revenge of the Sith was released in 2005, many fans assumed that this galaxy far far away had come to a close and we wouldn't be seeing any new films. The backlash, caused by many fan's hatred of The Last Jedi, has urged some to begin boycotting the new Han Solo film, claiming that Johnson's film has been "destroying the saga". Its four-day holiday weekend estimate looks to hit $20 million. As the first film in the sequel trilogy, "The Force Awakens" launched with a massive $248 million three-day total. In fact, "Solo" is now forecast for a four day holiday weekend of $105 million to $115 million domestically.

Four reasons why the team will win Game 7
That's how they looked in the second half of Game 1, over the final 45 minutes of Game 3 and over the final 36 minutes of Game 6. Saturday night's game takes place on the Warriors' home court, where they have only lost once in their last 17 playoff games.

However, according to a report by Variety, the film is likely to fall short of the target and make $101 million across 4,381 North American theatres. Rogue One followed in 2016 and grossed $155 million over its opening weekend.

Earlier predictions had estimated the film to have a staggering opening of upto $150 million.

"Deadpool 2" should easily score the second slot, heading for a $42 million three-day sophomore frame and a four-day total of around $54 million. In some instances we'd change stuff a lot, and other instances we'd use elements of what was in place, and something we'd use a scene entirely - and they're brilliant guys.

So the people will decide what seed she will get. Serena had a tough time giving birth. A No. 453 ranking means no seed.

"Of course we would have hoped for this to be a bit bigger", said Dave Hollis, Disney's distribution chief. That should help the movie take off at the box office - despite the bumpy liftoff.

It will be interesting to see how Solo continues to perform financially over the next few weeks.

It's impossible to tell how much Solo will end up making, but taking into account its disappointing opening weekend, the movie could have a challenging road ahead.
