Solo: A Star Wars Story opened this past holiday weekend and, as some predicted, its box office performance did not live up tot he lofty expectations set by other Disney Star Wars releases.
For the 3-day weekend, Solo grossed $103 million in North America and $148 globally. On the surface, $148 million seems like a pretty impressive total, but when compared to the past Disney Star Wars releases (Force Awakens- $248M, Rogue One- $155M, Last Jedi- $220M), it is a pretty disappointing number.
That said, don’t cry too much for Disney. The entertainment giant has already released two of the largest movies in history this year and has a number of potential hits (including The Incredibles 2 in a couple of weeks) set for release later on this year.
As always, I will be updating this post weekly as news about Solo: A Star Wars Story’s box office performance is released.
