Solo: A Star Wars Story Lands FAR Behind Expectations At Memorial Day Weekend Box Office
This is not how they were planning things to go!
Solo: A Star Wars Story is struggling mightily at the box office this weekend, bombing both across North America and around the world in an opening well below expectations for the Memorial Day Weekend.
The Disney and Lucasfilm production was REALLY sluggish in its debut this weekend, in total bringing in just $84.8 million over the first three days of the weekend across North America, and landing a total $103 million domestic for its four-day holiday weekend debut.
That’s well behind expectations for the weekend, and even worse than what had originally been forecasted on Friday before the poor weekend began.
The story overseas is just as bad, too — Solo rolled out everywhere but Japan over the weekend, at it did bombed pretty much everywhere, bringing in just $65 million TOTAL overseas, including a lowly, miserable $10.1 million in China.
That gives the film a global bow at just $168 million for the entire weekend; many prognosticators thought that the film would easily hit $300 million, but it didn’t even come close… yikes!!
What’d y’all see this weekend in theaters, Perezcious readers?!
Anything good?? Or are you out and about in the nice weather??
