“Solo” Still Sinking At The Box Office; “Infinity War” Closes In On $2 Billion
You win some, you lose some. Although “Solo: A Star Wars Story” may be a box office failure for Disney, “Avengers: Infinity War” is the complete opposite. This week at the box office, both movies met with some competition with new movies like “Oceans 8” and “Hereditary” capturing audiences interests and wallets.
Here are the weekend results for the domestic box office provided by Box Office Mojo:
It’s not all bad for Solo. Solo came in second place at the domestic box office this weekend making $15 million, bringing it’s domestic total to $176 million. Overseas, Solo brought in an anemic $11 million, bringing it’s international total to $136 million. Solo’s worldwide total is now $312 million. With a an estimated cost of $400 million, and with Disney having to split the gross with theaters, where Disney gets less and less each week the movie is out, who knows how big the loss will be when Solo ends it’s theatrical run.
Infinity War is so close to the $2 billion mark that it may reach that bench mark within hours. Infinity War came in 5th place at the domestic box office this weekend with $6.8 million, bringing it’s domestic total to $655 million. Overseas, Infinity War pulled in an additional $10.9 million, bringing it’s international total to $1.343 billion. The worldwide total for Infinity War at the box office is now at $1.998 billion. You cant get any closer to $2 billion than that! Well, maybe a little.
Next weekend, sees the return of The Incredibles as Incredibles 2 opens on June 15th and they are about to conquer the box office. Right now the domestic estimates for Incredibles 2 is around $140 million. More than likely, that estimate will be on the low side as we see more and more reviews come in.
