Star Wars bounty hunter Boba Fett set for next spin-off movie

If that held, "Solo" would be set up to be the latest "Star Wars" movie having a record-breaking box office opening - taking the crown from current Memorial Day record holder, 2007's "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" with $139.8 million.

The announcement comes concurrent with the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, the first standalone Star Wars film to focus on one particular character. The Marvel blockbuster is looking at a $16.9 million three-day estimate, along with a four-day number of $22.1 million. But in reality, this is a weak opening for a Star Wars movie, as the lowest of the four post-Disney releases and even falling short of Revenge of the Sith, which opened in 2005 with $108.4 million.

Early box office projections had put Solo: A Star Wars Story at $170 million for the four-day holiday weekend, but those predictions have cooled considerably, with projections now between the $130 million and $150 million range for the four-day weekend. The second film in "Star Wars'" sequel trilogy debuted with $220 million domestically. The Han Solo origin film's three-day estimate now hovers around $83 million.

Saturday returns for the "Star Wars" anthology film registered at just $24.6 million, amounting to a 31 percent drop from Friday's $35.8 million returns. Internationally, Deadpool 2 brought in another $57 million across 27 markets, making its global total $279.7 million and putting its worldwide gross at $498.9 million after the Memorial Day holiday.

Trump discloses United States dollars 250000 reimbursement to Cohen
The president's tax returns would give a clear picture, but Trump has broken with tradition by refusing to make them public. Though it was published three decades ago, Trump's "The Art of The Deal" past year generated as much as $1 million.

One the one hand, that's not a huge dent to Solo's opening days in theaters.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is directed by Ron Howard, who took over for the original directors, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, after they were let go with just a few weeks left of filming due to creative differences with Lucasfilm. For a movie dedicated to the selfish necessity of survival, Enfys Nest offered that quintessential Star Wars hope.

Our review of Solo describes the movie as "uninspired and visually tiresome", albeit with intriguing potential for a sequel. However, this seems highly unlikely given once you exit the message board/reddit culture around Star Wars, The Last Jedi appears fairly well received.
