The second of Lucasfilm's <em>Star Wars</em> anthology films did not land the way the studio hoped. Plagued by <a href="https://screenrant.com/solo-bad-marketing-box-office-flop/">an uninspired marketing campaign</a> and opening in the shadow of <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/the-avengers-3/"><em>Avengers: Infinity War</em></a> and <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/deadpool-2/"><em>Deadpool 2</em></a>, the spinoff posted <a href="https://screenrant.com/solo-movie-memorial-weekend-opening/">a soft $103 million</a> over the 4-day Memorial Day weekend before taking a nosedive this week and earning <a href="https://screenrant.com/solo-star-wars-movie-second-weekend-box-office/">only $29.3 million in its second frame</a>. In its first 10 days, <em>Solo</em><em>'s</em> global haul is just $264.3 million.</p><p>It goes without saying these numbers are poor, but they're compounded by the fact <em>Solo's</em> production budget was <a href="https://screenrant.com/solo-star-wars-story-budget-force-awakens/">doubled to over $250 million</a> due to its various production difficulties, including Ron Howard coming in to reshoot essentially all of the picture. <em>Solo</em> needed to be a massive hit in order to turn a profit, but instead, it's going to finish its run in the red. We now know just how much this investment is going to cost the Mouse House.</p> <strong>Click to continue reading <a href="https://screenrant.com/solo-movie-box-office-loss-star-wars/">Solo: A Star Wars Story Projected To Lose $50+ Million For Disney</a></strong><br /><br /> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://screenrant.com/solo-movie-box-office-loss-star-wars/">Solo: A Star Wars Story Projected To Lose $50+ Million For Disney</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://screenrant.com/">ScreenRant</a>
