Whilst those fans that have seen it love it, the box office seems to be telling a different type of Star Wars story….
Disney and Lucasfilms’s Solo: A Star Wars Story finished in second with an estimated $15.15 million, pushing the film’s domestic cume just over $176 million as it begins its third week in release. Internationally the film is already puttering out, adding just $11.3 million, bringing its overseas cume to $136.1 million for a global tally that now stands at $312.2 million with a June 29 opening in Japan left on the release calendar.
Solo is currently sitting with a worldwide total of $313 million and it is hoped it will reach at least $350 million. When the film opens at the end of the month in Japan this figure could change dramatically, if it’s able to emulate the success of Rogue One (which took $38 million in Japan).
