Solo Movie Falls Below Expectations

Published

on

Solo: A Star Wars story has the lowest opening for the Star Wars stand-alone films.

Disney earlier projections for Solo during the four day weekend was between $130 million to $150 million. Now estimating $101 million with the additional Memorial Day sales. A minimal $65 million was brought in from international markets, with the UK pulling in $10.3 million and only $10.1 million coming from China.

The film, directed by Ron Howard, follows Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo, who befriends his future co-pilot and Wookie companion Chewbacca, and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover). Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Thandie Newton, Paul Bettany, Joonas Suotamo, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge round out the cast.

This is not an indicator that the movie is bad. Releasing the film a couple of weeks behind Avengers: Infinity War and Deadpool 2 was a bad idea. It still managed to overtake Deadpool as the number one movie at the box office.

1. Solo: A Star Wars Story – $83.3 million

2. Deadpool 2 – $42.7 million

3. Avengers: Infinity War – $16.5 million

4. Book Club – $9.5 million

5. Life of the Party – 5.1 million

Rick And Morty Creators Promises No More Long Waits After Season 4

Published

on

Rick and Morty’s creators are gearing up for a historic run for the series.

After long negotiations that pushed back season 4, Adult Swim has renewed the show for 70 episodes. Now with the deal in place fans won’t have to wait 18 months between seasons.

Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland spoke to Polygon about the impact of the new deal. “We‘re super excited that, for the first time ever, we’re locked in, we know what the future is, we have job security,” Roiland said. ”Harmon is in great spirits, we have a great writer’s room. We want the episodes to stay good, but we do also want to try to turn them around a little quicker now that we have this big order, I think it gives us the ability to be faster. We’re not going to do these long breaks, these chasms in between seasons anymore. We’re going to schedule vacation time and just keep the machine going. It’s going to be really cool.”

Fans still have to wait a couple of months for the fourth season. Rick and Morty’s fourth season may not debut until late 2019.
