The thing about TLJ was that it was liked by many, the issue I have is why do so many people not understand that a lot of non-racists, non-sexist people had serious issues with the film.

 

I think that is easy to understand, why could it be a big deal to have issue with a movie ? That is an harder to understand for the average people that never cared for any franchise ever (or at least no where the level star wars fans do) like most. It feel like if it is a big deal to dislike a movie, there must be something stronger going on (underestimating how crazy those fan goes for those products)

Brad from BOM gave a 525-575m range, despite even admitting that the likely DOM range was 200-230. Bring on that 6x OS multi! Lol. 

 

Lol, I really hope this guy is trolling. He's in denial.

We all kid with each other and what not. But Scott's a good guy and that isn't even slightly an amusing thing to say aloud.

I think Disney needs to make Lucasfilm go to all it's other divisions with every new idea/script for future films & ask them will people be interested in these or not? cause the quality is usually there with the films but like nobody wanted a Solo movie.

I now know, what the BP/IW combo reminded me of. Look at 1994's Forrest Gump and The Lion King adjusted:

 

1 Forrest Gump Par. $719,477,800 2,365 $53,580,700 1,595 7/6
2 The Lion King BV $683,559,300 2,624 $3,477,200 2 6/15

65m OW from the entire OS landscape is just something else. With an opening that low and FK hitting OS next week, this thing could go significantly lower than even 200. Disney is having two of the biggest OS big budget failures I've ever seen this year with WiT and now Solo. 

wrinkle ww + solo ww < 550 on a combined prod budget of 400-450 and of course each film had it's own marketing budgets.

but BP and AIW are gonna make Disney 1b+ (450+ for BP and 600+ for AIW) in profits according to deadline.

so Disney is Disney and have a great line up ahead too with other MCUs, live-actions (especially TLK), Pixar, WDAS and whatever they get from Fox.

TLJ absolutely is one of the reasons Solpmis flopping. Along with the disinterest. If it was just one of these reasons the numbers would be just average. Boyj

of these combined are what is chasing the shitting horrible numbers you see

Is this the greatest failure in BO history?

No.

 

There are movies out there that sank entire studios (hello Heaven's Gate). Solo won't even lose that much money when it's all said and done. And certainly just a blip on Disney's radar.

I just realized that Solo+DP2+FK may not add up to much more than IW WW. 400+650+1100=2,150. IW = 2025

JW isn't dropping that much WW.

I never thought we'd see a high profile flop bigger than Justice League this soon. I guess DCU is no longer this forum's designated punching bag anymore.

it should be extremely obvious at this point that people don't care about the OT that much. the past decade of rabid anti-PT OT stans were just that, a vocal minority

It seems that this movie's hyperfuel tank is running on empty. Han's hollow.

And Solo is coming off of 3 billion dollar movies, so it's drop is doubly embarrassing because of that fact. From 1 billion to 400-450mil. And if Disney isn't careful they are going to completely lose the international market with regards to Star Wars.

Is there any way IW can get some IMAX screens back for a bit? They’re probably not being used to their full potential right now lol

Reminds me of something John Landis once said about how studios used to lie about a film's budget to make it bigger and nowadays they do the exact opposite. Lie about the costs to make it cheaper.

It sure as hell will on a 300m budget before even marketing costs. 400 is not a guarantee worldwide with that OS OW. And lmao if anyone thinks that a Star Wars film as a box office bomb is just going to be a "blip" on Disney's radar.

 

This is a bigger deal than JL failing because DCEU was a newer franchise that never had anywhere near the pedigree of SW. SW is supposed to be THE franchise of franchises, literally infallible for 40 years across 9 movies. Just last month people would have still told you it was "impossible" for Solo to lose money as an SW film. Now here we are.

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 ends up as a better investment for Disney than this. Bruckheimer's probably getting his POTC 6 pitch ready now.

 

National Treasure  3 over Solo worldwide?
