If you’re stumbling out of this weekend not realising that The brand new Star Wars Solo movie is out within Cinemas then you’re not alone. This Intended major hit has flown by a vast majority of fans as Solo has suffered an underwhelming result within Cinema in it’s first week.

“The newest Star Wars movie, Solo, opened this weekend–but it was not the hit that Disney and Lucasfilm would have wanted. The movie is tracking to make around $101 million in the US and Canada over this Memorial Day long weekend, according to Entertainment Weekly. That would put the film easily in the top spot, but it’s well below what projections said it might make. Industry watchers said the film was expected to pull in between $130 million and $150 million for its opening.

Solo made an estimated $83.3 million in the Friday-Sunday period, which gives it the worst three-day opening weekend box office figure of any of the new Star Wars films by a very, very large margin. Here are the three-day domestic opening-weekend figures for the three previous new era Star Wars films.

  1. The Force Awakens ($248 million)
  2. Rogue One ($155.1 million)
  3. The Last Jedi ($220 million

Solo made around $65 million in the Friday-Sunday window from international markets–including China–which is not the greatest.

The record-holder for the four-day Memorial Day weekend is 2007’s Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, which made $139.8 millionSolo was projected to potentially dethrone that movie, but it came nowhere close to doing that.” – Gamespot.co.uk
