Solo was not only a little rough past the cash register edges. The latest Star Wars spin-off opened an estimated $ 101 million in ticket sales on a four-day holiday weekend. This is not only a worse weekend earner than the three previous Disney Star Wars films, but also gentler in terms of the number of tickets sold compared to the three prequels (yes, even Attack of The Clones ).
Director Ron Howard admitted on Twitter that the film had fallen short of expectations, along with a characteristic optimism:
Howard endorsed positive reactions to the film throughout the weekend and at the same time rescued a reporter who slammed Disney's Memorial Day Weekend Release Date:
But remember, Black Panther was released in February ̵
"We've come up with one of the most anticipated films earlier this year," said Disney's director of worldwide distribution, Dave Hollis, deadline . "We have to spend some time looking at the exits and understanding all the questions."
Reviews by The Han Solo prequel story was generally positive, though reception at the box office asks Disney should slow down its role in Star Wars films. After all, Solo opened just five months after The Last Jedi. Looking back, the movie seems to be retrospectively retroactive to the end of the year (the other, more successful Disney Star Wars movies were all opening in December). But it's also easy to see why Disney thought they could get away with a five-month gap if they sometimes release three Marvel titles in a single year and all of them are hits. Disney pushed it and the hyperspace of the box office sprayed.
On Tuesday morning, it's hot that "Star Wars is no miracle" – this is not a galaxy that lends itself to aggressive expansion like the MCU. As CNET discovered, Disney's Star Wars attempted to do the opposite of what Marvel did to his universe – starting with epic stories about groups of characters together and then telling individual stories (it's like Marvel did The Avengers first and then Thor and Iron Man, instead of vice versa.The result is probably the feeling that we are getting thinner with each new movie in the story
But another problem with Solo and Rogue One in particular – and the Obi-Wan idea – is that they are very different from Marvel's stand-alone stories all prequels that tend to cut a part of narrative life out of a story, you know that certain characters are not really in danger, and history will inevitably lead to to fill the backstory, instead of moving the ball forward.
Solo ended at least with a fascinating ending, and It's going to be a pity if we – Spoileralarm – will never find out what's next with Qi's (Emilia Clarke), who was an engaging wild card in the movie.
So you have to ask yourself: Do we really need a Boba Fett movie? (Probably not). And should popular Star Wars characters even get independent movies? (We are still admittedly curious about the movie Obi-Wan Kenobi, which is currently under development). Disney's Development of an All-New Star Wars Saga from Game of Thrones Showrunner David Benioff and Dan Weiss is arguably the most exciting current project on the board, because it's probably a new story with new ones Characters, by authors who know how to make epic fantasy and are not afraid to take risks. Anyway, we now have a Star Wars release date and a significant gap: Star Wars: Episode IX The JJ Returns Abrams to the director's chair will not be released until December 20, 2019. And maybe the long wait is not so bad.
