“Solo: A Star Wars Story” Comes In First At The Box Office This Weekend; “Avengers: Infinity War” Getting Closer To $2 Billion

Good news is Solo: A Star Wars Story is still number one at the box office. Bad news is Solo dropped 65% since last weekend. Unfortunately for Disney and Lucasfilm, good word of mouth did not help the movie at the box office. Solo will go down in history as a financial failure. It’s still a decent movie, it just hasn’t captured the audience it should have. So fans of this movie can probably forget about a Solo 2 ever happening in the future.

Solo made an estimated $29 million domestically this weekend, bringing it’s domestic total to $149 million. Overseas, Solo brought in $30 million, bringing it’s global total to $115 million. And when you put these two totals together, you have a worldwide total of $264 million. Yuck.

And “Avengers: Infinity War” just keeps on a rolling! Hopefully Infinity War will get to the somewhat obtainable $2 billion mark. This movie still hasn’t opened in Japan, so hopes are pretty high that Infinity War will reach that goal. This weekend Infinity War brought in $10 million domestically, bringing it’s domestic total to $643 million. Overseas, Infinity War brought in $24 million, bring it’s international total to $1.322 billion. And the total worldwide total for Infinity War is currently $1.965 billion! Not bad at all!

Its really too bad that a movie is only judged on how much money it makes on a given weekend. Such an arbitrary criteria. I had to follow two of the biggest, most anticipated, movies in the last two years. Whoever thought to release it now, instead of later in the year, is the one to blame. Not the movie.
