Solo: A Star Wars Story Struggles In Its Second Weekend At The Box Office

Solo: A Star Wars Story had an underwhelming opening at the Box Office last week and things continue to be low in its second weekend.

It appears as if Disney/Lucasfilm will have to brainstorm what to do when it comes to future standalone movies.

As reported by Box Office Mojo, the second weekend of Solo: A Star Wars Story was only able to muster in $29.29 million this week.

This is a huge 65 percent drop from its opening weekend meaning word of mouth for the film may not have been as strong as initially thought.

In North America, the movie's total is now just under $150 million meaning it will only make around $200 million domestically by the end of its run. This is disappointing considering the reported budget for the film is close to $300 million.

People overseas don't seem to be liking the movie either as its worldwide total to date now stands at $264.2 million. If this slow pace keeps up, the movie might even struggle to gross over $400 million worldwide.

It goes without saying that this should be seen as a huge disappointment for Disney/Lucasfilm considering it will become the lowest grossing Star Wars movie of all time.

They have 18 months left until Episode IX comes out so there's time for them to rethink their strategy for future Star Wars movie marketing.

On the other hand, Deadpool 2 by 20th Century Fox is not a flop because it made $23.3 million in its third weekend of release. Its domestic total stands at $255 million and its worldwide total is now close to $600 million.

While Solo might not be performing well for Disney, Avengers: Infinity War is still making money a month after its release.

The film has now grossed $1.965 billion worldwide and it could be the fourth film ever to cross over the $2 billion mark.
