Disney and Lucasfilms's Solo: A Star Wars Story topped the Memorial Day holiday weekend box office, but the film fell well short of expectations, raising a few valid questions. Was it too soon to release another Star Wars movie five months after the last installment and was the competition just too stiff from the likes of Deadpool 2 and Disney's own Avengers: Infinity War?
With an estimated $83.3 million over the three-day weekend, Solo: A Star Wars Story is the weekend's #1 film and while Disney is currently anticipating a $101 million, the question remains as to whether it will be able to bring in enough to reach $100 million over the four-day holiday frame. Disney entered the weekend projecting a performance anywhere from $130-150 million for the four-day weekend and with a reported $300 million price tag before prints and advertising this weekend's performance is extremely disappointing.
While competition from Deadpool 2 and Avengers: Infinity War certainly played a role in Solo's struggles, the small, five month window between the December release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Solo didn't help matters. Disney released the previous three Star Wars films in December, giving each a year's worth of breathing room, this was the first attempt at a summer start and had the price tag and expectations not been so high perhaps the smaller performance wouldn't appear to be such an issue, but as it stands this would appear to be a failure from a theatrical standpoint.
One caveat to that point is the live-action blockbuster landscape is relatively wide open between now and June 22 when Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom hits theaters. While Solo, Avengers and Deadpool will continue to fight for holdover audiences, should Solo hold on well next weekend it could slightly improve its position domestically. At this time, however, a $205-230 million domestic performance looks likely and its international debut isn't helping matters.
Internationally, Solo brought in a meager $65 million from virtually the entire international marketplace with Japan left as the lone major market yet to see release. Leading the way was the UK with $10.3m followed by China ($10.1m), Australia ($5.0m), Germany ($4.3m), France ($3.9m), Russia ($3.6m), Spain ($2.6m), Mexico ($2.5m), Italy ($2.2m), Brazil ($1.3m), Sweden ($1.3m) and Korea ($1.1m). The film will open in Croatia and Trinidad next weekend before opening in Japan on June 29.
For some perspective, Solo's domestic three-day debut was just 54% of the $155 million opening for Rogue One, its international performance wasn't even half of Rogue's $134.9 million overseas opening and that was without opening in South Korea and China. The top three markets for Solo compared to Rogue One show the UK opening was 48% of Rogue's debut, China was a third and Australia's opening was 46% of Rogue's. It will be interesting to see where the film goes from here as a worldwide performance anywhere from $525-575 million might be where this one ends up.
In exit polling, Solo received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, the first of the Disney-released Star Wars films to not receive an "A". Audiences were 58% male and 64% of the audience was over the age of 25.
Fox and Marvel's Deadpool 2 finished in second place with an estimated $42.7 million, dropping a hefty 66% in its second weekend. The film is expected to deliver a $53.5 million four-day weekend pushing its domestic cume a couple million shy of $220 million. Internationally, Deadpool 2 nearly topped Solo in its second weekend with an estimated $57 million, pushing the film's overseas cume just shy of $280 million for a global tally totaling $487.1 million. The film opens in Japan on June 1.
Disney and Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War finished in third, bringing in an estimated $17 million for the three-day. The film is looking at a $21 million four-day performance which will push its domestic cume over $627 million and move it up two spots on the all-time domestic chart, landing in sixth just ahead of 2012's The Avengers ($623.3m)*.
Internationally, Infinity War added $32.5 million for an international total that now stands at $1.283 billion and a global cume topping $1.9 billion, maintaining its position as the fourth largest global release of all-time.
Finishing in fourth is Paramount's Book Club with an estimated $9.4 million for the three-day and looking at a solid $12 million for the four-day weekend. The film continues to play well to its target demographic, as its domestic cume pushes toward $35 million after 11 days in release.
Rounding out the top five is Warner Bros. and New Line's Life of the Party with an estimated $5.1 million for the three-day weekend and looking at a four-day performance around $6.5 million for a domestic cume just over $40 million after 18 days in release.
Outside the top five, Global Road's Show Dogs fell much harder than expected. The family-friendly feature dipping 49% in its second weekend, pulling in an estimated $3 million for the three-day and expected to deliver $4.1 million for the holiday frame. The film's domestic cume will end just a bit shy of $12 million after eleven days in release.
Paramount's A Quiet Place finished ninth with an estimated $2.2 million for the three-day and $2.7 million for the four-day, pushing its domestic cume over $180 million. Additionally, the film brought in another $4.7 million internationally this weekend as its worldwide cume has now topped $310 million.
In tenth position is Magnolia's documentary RBG, this weekend delivering an estimated $1.1 million for the three-day weekend and looking at a four-day performance around $1.25 million for a domestic cume nearing $6 million. This makes RBG Magnolia's third highest grossing release of all-time with a chance it tops 2017's I Am Not Your Negro ($7.1m) to become the studio's all-time highest grossing title.

Even though Deadpool 2 didn't deliver a record opening domestically for an R-rated movie it still captured a few record of its own as well as delivered a couple studio records en route to an impressive $301.3 million worldwide debut. Meanwhile Avengers: Infinity War continued its impressive run, becoming the fourth largest global release of all-time while Paramount's Book Club and Global Road's Show Dogs delivered on expectations in their attempts at counter-programming against the pair of superhero features.
Early indications were that Deadpool 2 would deliver a record opening for an R-rated film after bringing in a pair of R-rated records with $18.6 million from Thursday previews and a $53.3 million opening day. However, it wasn't able to maintain that momentum, finishing with a still impressive $125 million estimate for the three-day, which is enough to become the second largest R-rated opening ever behind the original's $132.4 million debut two years ago and just ahead of the $123.4 million opening for It last September. The debut is also the second largest Fox opening of all-time, also behind the original Deadpool.
The film scored a strong "A" CinemaScore and actually skewed just a bit older than the first one which played to an audience of which 53% were 25 years or older vs. 62% for the sequel. Deadpool 2 pretty much matched the first along gender lines, playing to an audience that was 61% male and 39% female.
Looking ahead, with the Memorial Day weekend upcoming it will be interesting to see how things pan out as Deadpool 2 will still have some competition from Avengers: Infinity War, which we'll get to in a second, as well as the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story debuting in over 4,200 locations. If it can hold its own over the holiday weekend it could push to a domestic run over $300 million, especially given it won't be until early July that audiences get a new superhero movie in Ant-Man and the Wasp (7/6).
Deadpool's success doesn't end there as it debuted in 81 markets internationally and brought in an estimated $176.3 million, a record overseas debut for Fox International, topping the $174 million for X-Men: Days of Future Past, which was aided by $38.3 million in China. The original Deadpool didn't play in China until finally premiering last month at the Beijing International Film Festival, and, at this time, the sequel doesn't have a release date scheduled for the Middle Kingdom. Additional highlights from the film's international roll-out include record breaking openings for Fox in Mexico ($10m), India ($6.29m), Indonesia ($4.7m), Thailand ($3.4m), Vietnam ($2m) and Chile ($1.9m).
In second position, while Deadpool takes the weekend crown from Avengers: Infinity War, the Disney and Marvel behemoth brought in $28.7 million over its fourth weekend in release, pushing the film's domestic cume over $595 million after 24 days in release. The film currently ranks as the eighth largest domestic release of all-time.
Infinity War also added another $84.4 million internationally this weekend for an overseas cume that now totals $1.218 billion and a global cume that now stands at $1.81 billion. The film now ranks as the fourth largest global release of all-time and the third largest international release of all-time behind only Avatar and Titanic. Looking at individual markets it has delivered industry records in Brazil ($60.8m), Central America ($13.7m), Bolivia ($3.5m), Chile ($12.9m), Ecuador ($7.3m), Peru ($11.1m), Venezuela ($2.6m), the Philippines ($22.8m), Indonesia ($25.1m), Malaysia ($16.9m), Singapore ($11.5m) and Vietnam ($8.2m). It also ranks as the fourth largest western release of all-time in China with an estimated $302.5 million after just ten days in release, as well as the largest western release of all-time in India ($42.8m) and Thailand ($17.7m).
Paramount's Book Club finished just ahead of Mojo's pre-release expectations, delivering a $12.5 million debut and a solid "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. Playing as a solid piece of counter-programming, and debuting just ahead of comp title Going in Style, which delivered a 3.7x multiplier, don't be surprised if Book Club pushes past $40 million domestically. The film played to an audience that was 80% female and 88% of the audience was over 35, with 60% over the age of 50.
In fourth position is Melissa McCarthy's Life of the Party, which fell a rather dramatic 57% following the worst opening the actress has seen for a film in which she top lined. The estimated weekend gross stands at $7.7 million for a $31 million cume.
Rounding out the top five is Gabrielle Union's Breaking In, which also had a steep, 63% drop, bringing in an estimated $6.47 million for a domestic cume that now stands at $28.75 million. Despite the drop, however, the film has already delivered more than 4.75x it's $6 million budget.
Just outside the top five is Global Road's family release Show Dogs, which brought in a dismal $6 million from 3,212 locations. The performance ranks among some of the worst openings all-time for a film debuting in over 3,000 theaters. That said, Global Road has now released the last title from the old regime, prior to the merger between Open Road and IM Global, as focus will now shift to the release of Hotel Artemis on June 8. Show Dogs received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences.
Worth mentioning yet again, Paramount's A Quiet Place continues to deliver impressive numbers, this weekend dropping 37% for an estimated $4 million, bringing its domestic cume to $176.17 million. The film has now surpassed last year's monster success Get Out ($176m) and the weekend's news surrounding the title doesn't end there. A Quiet Place debuted in China this weekend, bringing in an estimated $17.7 million, helping push the film's international cume to $120.3 million for a global tally that is now just $3.5 million shy of $300 million.
Rounding out the top ten is Magnolia's documentary RBG, which expanded into 375 theaters this weekend (+196) and delivered an estimated $1.28 million, pushing the film's cume to $3.88 million after three weeks in limited release and already just shy of becoming one of the top 50 documentaries all-time domestically.

Disney and Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War continues its record pace, topping $450 million domestically in just nine days and the $1 billion mark worldwide in a record 11 days. Among the weekend's new wide releases, MGM and Lionsgate's Overboard remake delivered a solid debut in the runner-up position while Focus's Tully and Electric Entertainment's Bad Samaritan delivered disappointing debuts in the low single digits.
With an estimated $112.4 million, Disney and Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War is once again the king of the weekend box office, topping its nearest competitor by nearly $100 million, and delivering the second largest second weekend ever. The film's domestic gross now stands at $450.8 million after just ten days in release, pacing behind only Star Wars: The Force Awakens which reached that mark in just nine days.
Internationally, Infinity War remained the #1 western release in every territory in which it has been released, posting an estimated $162.6 million from 54 overseas markets this weekend for a global weekend totaling $275.1 million, bringing the film's worldwide cume to a massive $1.16 billion.
The lone new major market for Infinity War this weekend was the Thursday release in Russia where it set a new opening weekend record topping the previous best posted by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, delivering an estimated $17.6 million, already exceeding the lifetime cume of Captain America: Civil War in the market. South Korea continues to lead the way internationally where the film has brought in $69.1 million followed by the UK ($67.2m), Mexico ($48.7m), Brazil ($44.3m) and India ($35.7m). The film releases in China next weekend on May 11 where, using current exchange rates, Civil War debuted with $98 million, Avengers: Age of Ultron debuted with $84 million and Black Panther debuted with $66 million.
Overall, Infinity War's 11 day run to $1 billion worldwide is the fastest of any film in history and the sixth Marvel title to reach that mark and 17th for Walt Disney Studios. A total of 34 films have crossed $1 billion at the worldwide box office, see the full list here.
In second is MGM and Lionsgate's Pantelion Films's release of Overboard, a contemporary remake of the 1987 film starring Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn. This time the roles were reversed with Anna Faris starring opposite Latin star Eugenio Derbez and the film brought in an estimated $14.75 million from just 1,623 locations. The performance is a bit behind Mojo's weekend forecast, but ahead of the studio's opening weekend expectations. The film received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening weekend audiences which were 61% female and 83% were over the age of 25.
Paramount's A Quiet Place finished in third position as the hit horror continues its impressive run with an estimated $7.6 million this weekend for a domestic cume just shy of $160 million. Additionally, the film brought in an estimated $4.1 million internationally this weekend, bringing its worldwide cume to $255.3 million.
Amy Schumer's I Feel Pretty finished in fourth with an estimated $4.9 million for a domestic cume that now totals $37.8 million.
Rounding out the top five is Warner Bros. and New Line's Rampage with an estimated $4.6 million for a domestic cume that is now just shy of $85 million. Additionally, Rampage added $13.7 million internationally, bringing its global cume to $377.9 million with releases in Germany (May 10) and Japan (May 18) in the near future.
Just outside the top five, Focus Features's release of Jason Reitman's Tully brought in an estimated $3.18 million from 1,353 theaters. The performance is right in the middle of industry expectations, but still something of a disappointment as the studio went with a wide opening weekend rather than use the film's positive reviews and go with a platform release, attempting to bank on word of mouth. The film played to audiences that were 60% female vs. 40% male with 67% of the audience coming in at 30 years of age or older.
Behind Tully in seventh position is Disney and Marvel's Black Panther, which delivered a strong $3.1 million, pushing the film's domestic cume over $693 million, just $7 million shy of becoming only the third film to ever reach $700 million domestically.
And rounding out the top ten is Electric Entertainment's release of Bad Samaritan, pulling in an estimated $1.76 million from 2,007 theaters for a disappointing $876 per theater average. While far from the worst opening average of all-time, it is the tenth worst for a film opening in 2,000 theaters or more as well as one of the ten worst openings ever for a film debuting in 2,000+ locations. Opening day audiences gave the film a "B-" CinemaScore.

BOX OFFICE RESULTS: Late Edition 'Avengers: Infinity War' Opens with Record Shattering $250M Domestically & $630M Worldwide
Audiences assembled worldwide as Disney and Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War broke both the domestic opening weekend box office record and worldwide opening record with a massive $250 million domestically and $630 million worldwide. In its wake, the majority of films on the weekend box office chart fell dramatically, though fellow Marvel Cinematic Universe release Black Panther improved its position from eighth place last weekend to a spot in this weekend's top five, truly making this a Marvel-ous weekend.
Infinity War's opening weekend bests the previous record of $247.9 million set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens back in December 2015 by just over $2 million, but it's also worth mentioning Disney under-estimated Black Panther's $202 million opening by nearly $10 million on Sunday. The studio also under-estimated The Avengers's performance by $7 million and under-estimated Avengers: Age of Ultron by $3.6 million. As such, don't be surprised to see Infinity War's debut blossom come actuals on Monday afternoon. At this moment, the film accounts for 84.4% of the domestic top twelve, second only to Ultron's 84.5% market share. Internationally, Infinity War delivered a monstrous $380 million from approximately 72% of the international marketplace. The debut is the second largest to Fate of the Furious though its important to note that film had the benefit of China grosses over its opening weekend, which represented $185 million (41.7%) of its $443 million international debut. Altogether, Infinity War's global debut reached $630 million, shattering the previous record of $541.9 million set by Fate of the Furious and doing so without China, where the film will open on May 11.
Highlights from Infinity War's international debut include #1 openings in all territories led by the UK with $42.2m followed by South Korea ($39.2m*), Mexico ($25.1m*), Australia ($23.0m), Brazil ($18.8m*), India ($18.6m), France ($17.7m), Germany ($14.7m), Philippines ($12.5m*), Italy ($11.0m), Thailand ($10.0m*), Indonesia ($9.6m*), Taiwan ($9.5m), Japan ($9.0m), Malaysia ($8.4m*) and Spain ($8.3m). The film also delivered the #1 international IMAX debut ever, excluding China, with a total of $41 million globally from $22.5 million domestically and $18.5 internationally. Prior to the film's opening in China, Infinity War will open in Russia next weekend. Looking ahead, Infinity War received an "A" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. Audiences were 58% male with 58% of the overall audience coming in over the age of 25. In terms of what to expect domestically, using multipliers from previous films in the MCU, a domestic performance over $600 million seems a given, but how much higher than that is unclear. A performance similar to Avengers: Age of Ultron would actually result in a domestic run right at $600 million, while comparisons to only Captain America: Civil War and Iron Man 3 would result in a domestic total below that mark. All told, Infinity War's estimated $630 million worldwide opening means the 19 films so far released in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have now amassed nearly $15.5 billion combined.
Finishing in second is Paramount's A Quiet Place, serving as the only film on the weekend chart to top double digits in the face of Infinity War. The film brought in an estimated $10.65 million for a cume just a couple million shy of $150 million. Looking at the list of supernatural horror films, this makes A Quiet Place the fifth largest ever and it will soon top 2000's What Lies Beneath ($155.4m).
STX's I Feel Pretty landed in third, delivering an estimated $8.1 million for its sophomore session, a 49% drop compared to last weekend, resulting in a cume that currently sits just shy of $30 million.
In fourth is Warner Bros.'s and New Line's Rampage, which dropped a hefty 65% for an estimated $7.1 million weekend and a domestic cume that now stands at $77.9 million. Internationally, Rampage added an estimated $16.2 million this weekend, pushing its international total to $256.7 million for a global cume totaling $334.6 million. The film opens in France this coming Wednesday.
Rounding out the top five is Disney and Marvel's Black Panther, which enjoyed a nice bump thanks to its fellow MCU title, delivering an estimated $4.38 million, signaling just an 11% drop compared to last weekend as the film's cume is now at a massive $688 million domestically. This is also the first time since The Incredible Hulk debuted in 2008 that two films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe find themselves in the weekend top ten at the same time.
Just outside the top five, after a stellar debut, Super Troopers 2 dipped 76% in its second weekend with an estimated $3.6 million for a domestic cume just over $22 million, surpassing the original's $18.5 million after just ten days in release.
Bleecker Street's Disobedience topped the weekend's new limited releases, bringing in an estimated $241,276 from five theaters for a strong $48,255 per theater average. The film played in New York and LA this weekend and will be expanding to ten additional markets next weekend.

Early on it looked as if it might be a tight race for the weekend #1, and while the margin was slim, in the end A Quiet Place settled into the spot, topping last weekend's champion Rampage. STX's I Feel Pretty settled into third over its debut weekend, delivering results a shade over expectations, narrowly topping the outstanding performance from Fox Searchlight's Super Troopers 2, which more than doubled expectations.
With an estimated $22 million, Paramount's A Quiet Place topped the weekend as its domestic cume climbs to an outstanding $132.4 million after just 17 days in release. For comparison, Split and The Conjuring finished with $138.2 million and $137.4 million respectively over the course of their entire domestic runs. In fact, A Quiet Place is now Paramount's highest grossing domestic release since 2016's Star Trek Beyond ($158.8m) as it topped the $130.1 million brought in by Transformers: The Last Knight last year.
Internationally, A Quiet Place added $15 million this weekend for an international cume just shy of $75 million and a global tally now over $207 million. New openings included a $891k #2 finish in Spain and a third place finish in Vietnam with an estimated $302k. Leading the way is the UK where the film's cume now stands at an estimated $11.7 million followed by Australia with an estimated $6.78 million cume. The film opens in China on May 18 followed by releases in France (6/20) and Japan (9/14).
Warner Bros. and New Line's Rampage finished in second place with an estimated $21 million, dropping 41% over its sophomore frame. The film's domestic cume now stands at $66 million. Internationally, the film added an estimated $57 million this weekend from 61 markets, pushing its international cume to $216.4 million for a $283 million global tally. Among highlights, China crossed $100 million with another ~$27 million this weekend while also maintaining a #1 ranking in Korea ($10.2m cume), the UK ($9.1m cume) and Mexico ($9.6m cume). Upcoming key markets include a May 2 release in France, a May 10 release in Germany and a May 18 release in Japan.
STX's release of Amy Schumer's I Feel Pretty finished in third for the weekend, bringing in an estimated $16.2 million, coming in slightly ahead of Mojo's pre-weekend expectations, but within the anticipated performance range. While the film's opening is below the $19.5 million and $30 million debuts for Schumer's Snatched and Trainwreck respectively, I Feel Pretty's PG-13 rating makes this a difficult comparison to those two R-rated features.
Super Troopers 2 landed in fourth with an impressive $14.7 million from just 2,038 locations. The $13.5 million production was marketed by Fox Searchlight and distributed by Fox and the film's debut is well ahead of pre-weekend expectations, which were pretty much blown away by end of day Friday. Arriving 16 years after the original film, Super Troopers 2 clearly has a supportive following as the sequel has almost already reached the $18.5 million overall domestic run for the original in just three days. Opening weekend demographics show the film played to an audience that was 64% male and of the overall audience, 75% were between the ages of 25-49.
Looking ahead, it will be interesting to see what kind of legs Super Troopers 2 has. The film's debut tops the $13.8 million opening for Zoolander 2, which went on to gross $28.8 million. On the other hand, Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay opened with $14.9 million and grossed $38.1 million. Those two comedy sequels considered, an anticipated run anywhere from $30-40 million would seem fair.
Rounding out the top five is Universal's release of the Blumhouse thriller Truth or Dare, which dropped 58% in its second weekend for an estimated $7.9 million, pushing the film's domestic cume just over $30 million after ten days in release.
Outside the top five, WB's Ready Player One added another $7.5 million domestically for a cume topping $125 million. Internationally the film added an estimated $23 million for an overseas cume just shy of $400 million and a running global tally totaling $521.6 million.
Disney and Marvel's Black Panther brought in an estimated $4.6 million, dropping just 20% for its tenth straight weekend in the top ten. The film's domestic cume now totals over $680 million and with an international total approaching $645 million, the film's worldwide tally now totals $1.324 billion. Black Panther's domestic total accounts for nearly 20% of 2018's overall box office and with Avengers: Infinity War hitting theaters in just five days this could be the first time since The Incredible Hulk in 2008 that two films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe find themselves in the weekend top ten at the same time.
From Lionsgate's Codeblack Films, Traffik debuted with an estimated $3.87 million, on par with expectations. The film received a "B" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and the audience was 52% female and 92% of the overall audience was 25 years or older.
