Thursday Night Previews: Solo’s $14.1 million Starts is Fastest for Memorial Day Weekend

May 25th, 2018

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story has already broken a record earning $14.1 million during its previews, which is nearly $1 million ahead of the previous record for Memorial Day long weekend. That record was $13.2 million held by At World’s End, which also holds the records for three-day and four-day Memorial Day weekends. Solo also earned better reviews, but At World’s End opened over a decade ago, so its previews are not a good comparison. Last year, Dead Men Tell No Tales started with $5.5 million, while the year before that, Apocalypse opened with $8.2 million. Even if we use the lower multiplier, this still puts Solo on pace for $113 million / $137 million. That’s close to the records for Memorial Day, which seems a bit bullish. We will have a better idea once Friday’s estimates are in. More...

Weekend Predictions: Will the Latest Star Wars Release Open Solo or So High?

May 24th, 2018

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Memorial Day long weekend is usually a great weekend to open a big release. However, this year, Solo: A Star Wars Story is the wide release of the weekend. It will obviously open in first place, but how will it compare to the recent releases in the Star Wars franchise? Deadpool 2 will have no trouble earning second place and could by the end of the weekend be in the black. (It depends heavily on how much it cost to advertise, but I think its combined budget is around $200 million.) The only other film expected to make a dent at the box office is Avengers: Infinity War, which has already earned $600 million domestically. This weekend last year, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales opened in first place with $62.98 million / $78.48 million. There are some who think Solo will double that. I’m not that bullish, but I do think Solo will lead 2018 to an easy win in the year-over-year competition. More...

2018 Preview: May

May 1st, 2018

Solo: A Star Wars Story

April was all about Avengers: Infinity War, which earned about as much during its opening weekend as the next two biggest films, A Quiet Place and Rampage, will earn in total. However, moving Infinity War to April has left a big gap for the first two weeks of May. It isn’t until Deadpool 2 debuts that we have a potential $100 million movie, while the week after Solo: A Star Wars Story closes the month on a strong note. Fortunately, both of those films are expected to earn more than $100 million during their opening weekends alone and combined could earn over $700 million domestically. Last May, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 helped the month get off to a fast start, but it was the only monster hit of the month. Infinity War opening a week early will mean the month will start slower, in terms of new releases, but Infinity War’s record-breaking debut should help 2018 come out ahead in the end. More...
