"Solo: A Star Wars Story" is on track to earn an estimated 101 million dollars for its four-day Memorial Day Weekend weekend opening which includes the Monday holiday in the United States.
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 film, directed by Ron Howard, follows Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo, who befriends his future co-pilot and Wookie companion Chewbacca, and meets the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover). The budget soared past $250 million. Solo also starsEmilia Clarke, Paul Bettany, Woody Harrelson, Joonas Suotamo, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Jon Favreau.
Not on the level of Deadpool 2 or Avengers: Infinity War, but still doing incredible business just the same is ninth-place finisher A Quiet Place which added another $2.2 million to its $180 million domestic total. The most recent "Star Wars" instalment, "The Last Jedi", opened internationally in December 2017 with $230 million and went on to generate $712 million overseas. While reviews were generally positive (71 percent "fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes), there was little about "Solo" that made the movie a must-see event.
With so many Star Wars films and stand-alone projects in the works, it's possible fan interest is dying out.
Fans were skeptical of Ehrenreich and uncertain about the dismissal of Lord and Miller (the popular filmmaking duo behind "21 Jump Street" and "The Lego Movie").
The "Star Wars" prequel is the latest installment of "Star Wars" films. 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.
"The franchise will be fine", Dergarabedian said.
So what do the returns for "Solo" mean for the franchise going forward? Gareth Jennings still retained his director's credit, and by all accounts, the first Star Wars standalone spin-off was a success both critically and commercially.
