Ocean’s 8 topped the box office with the best, unadjusted, opening for the Ocean’s franchise while Hotel Artemis bombed and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opened internationally to some big numbers.
Solo remained on the top of the box office for a second week but it suffered a 65% drop off from last week and will most likely be the first Star Wars movie under Disney to lose money.
The next chapter in the new Star Wars run at Disney goes back to tell the tale of the early days of Han Solo’s criminal career, as he teams up with a veteran thief, his former love interest and future allies Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian to pull a seemingly impossible heist for a major crime syndicate.
Probably due to a variety of factors and some big competition at the box office, Solo did not perform up to the expectations of Disney over the holiday weekend, making far less than any of it’s predecessors in the new wave of Star Wars films.
The first Star Wars Story, Rogue One tells the tale of the band of rebels that stole the Death Star plans shortly before the start of Episode IV.
The final Rogue One trailer gives us our first look at Mads Mikkelsen’s Galen Erso, who is forced by the Empire to become one of the chief architects behind the Death Star, the plans of which his daughter Jyn (Felicity Jones) is recruited by the Rebellion to try and steal.
There’s plenty of new, awesome, in the trenches action from the new Rogue One trailer, where Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) and a group of Rebel operatives try and steal the plans for the Empire’s newest and deadliest weapon, the Death Star.
Criminal Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) is recruited by the Rebellion to join a special team tasked with getting details about a secret Imperial weapons project in the first “Star Wars Story”, Rogue One, directed by Godzilla’s Gareth Edwards.
