Solo will be another hit for the Star Wars franchise.
Early tracking has Solo estimated at bringing in $160-170 million for its opening weekend. If that holds up, it would make Solo the second-biggest Memorial Day weekend launch ever. It would also put Solo below the opening weekends for The Force Awakens ($247 million) and The Last Jedi ($220 million) but slightly above fellow Star Wars spin-off Rogue One ($155 million).
Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
Directed by Ron Howard, Solo stars Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Woody Harrelson, Joonas Suotamo, and Paul Bettany
Solo is in theaters May 25.
