  • Solo sputters in takeoff with $83.3M at box office

Another factor affecting Solo: A Star Wars Story's box office could be that Star Wars fans have reached a point where they don't automatically buy a ticket for every film in the franchise.

Solo: A Star War's Story, the origin story of a young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich), debuted with a disappointing opening weekend at the box office, only earning $103 million over the holiday.

Rounding out the 10 top-grossing films of the weekend were "Breaking In" with $5.7 million; "Show Dogs" with $4.5 million; "Overboard" with $4 million; "A Quiet Place" with $3 million; and "RBG" with $1.5 million.

The production woes that led to Ron Howard replacing Phil Lord and Chris Miller are just a part of the reason Solo is struggling to make Star Wars money. The budget soared past $250 million.

Screening of the film "Solo: A Star Wars Story" out of competition - Red Carpet Arrivals - Cannes, France May 15, 2018. The Force Awakens, Rogue One, and The Last Jedi enjoyed big box office hauls thanks to their Christmas release; it's still unclear why Solo has deviated from a tried and tested release schedule, but what is clear is that competing in the summer against Deadpool 2, and Infinity War was a mistake.

Back on defensive line, left-back Benjamin Mendy was called up although he featured in few games for Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

The fifth weekend of "Avengers: Infinity War" looks to land in third. The most recent installment in the franchise - "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" - opened less than six months ago.

"Deadpool 2" should easily score the second slot, heading for a $42 million three-day sophomore frame and a four-day total of around $54 million.

"It is a business that is built on momentum but also one where people probably are only able to get to theaters a certain number of weeks in a row", said Hollis.

That name won't mean much to many, but Star Wars fans who owned a PlayStation (or who have dived into the Star Wars Expanded Universe) will know that Teras Kasi is a deadly martial art taught throughout the galaxy. Paramount's latest comedy took in $9.5 million for the three days on 2,810 screens. But this movie release model, even on a smaller scale, presents a real challenge with "Star Wars".

That time might also be valuable for Lucasfilm and Disney to find a way to counter the diminishing returns of its multi-billion-dollar franchise. The numbers out Monday from the industry tracking group comScore are for Friday through Monday at theaters in the United States and Canada.
