Solo Movie Falls Below Expectations

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
