`Solo' Tops `Deadpool 2' at Weekend Box Office

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

In Solo: A Star Wars Story, L3-37 is a progressive, self-made droid who has upgraded and improved herself with scraps of other droids. The film passed The Last Jedi today to become the seventh-biggest domestic film of all time, and should pass the original Avengers tomorrow to move up to number six on the chart.

Fortunately, the large majority of concerns regarding the project were appeased when Solo flew into theaters. Fans might argue that stingers would feel out of place in Star Wars-for decades, these movies have been over when the credits started to roll and the iconic theme music kicked in.

But tipping the odds in "Solo's" favor is the fact that it's part of a sci-fi franchise that has brought in roughly $9 billion at the worldwide box office, and arguably has the most loyal fan base in pop culture. The title centered on the life and career of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made $1.5 million on just 415 screens over the four-day weekend. Without spoiling it for those that have yet to see it, Solo is a profoundly uneven movie yet it manages to be a lot of fun especially when Donald Glover's pitch-perfect Lando is on screen.

Throughout her career, Patrick made eight appearances in the Indianapolis 500 and finished in the top 10 during six of those. But all three needed enough gas to get to the finish line, and it was Power who was frantically chasing them down.

Rogue One - the first standalone Star Wars anthology film - debuted in 2016 with an global total of US$134 million.

"It's the compressed timeframe between the two "Star Wars" films and the highly competitive nature of this marketplace".

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. It is also way behind Rogue One. Disney distribution chief Dave Hollis told the film news website. We've had so much success.

In Wednesday morning's interview with The Washington Post , he said the president sometimes seesaws on whether he wants to do an interview.

"In the hugely competitive environment of the summer movie season, "Solo, ' had a tough time living up to the initial projections for its opening weekend performance".

Though, while the news isn't great, there is one angle that gives a bit of positive light. Solo: A Star Wars Story is the highest Memorial Day weekend opener since 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past took in $110.6M in its first four days. Han Solo. Luke Skywalker. This second standalone Star Wars anthology film hasn't performed as well as was expected.
