Well It Looks Like The Movie ‘Solo’ Will Lose $50M-Plus in First Defeat for Disney’s ‘Star Wars’ Empire

Lucasfilms’ standalone Han Solo origin pic is faltering at the global box office, where it will top out in the $400 million range.

To borrow one of Han Solo’s lines from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, “that’s not how the Force works!”

It’s an apt way to sum up the troubled performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story. In one of the biggest box-office surprises in recent times, Solo is badly underperforming and will become the first of the Star Wars movies made by Disney and Lucasfilm to lose money.

Wall Street analyst Barton Crockett says Solo will lose more than $50 million. Industry financing sources, however, say that figure could come in at $80 million or higher, although no one knows the exact terms of Disney’s deals for home entertainment and television, among other ancillary revenues.

Solo, directed by Ron Howard, isn’t likely to gross much more than $400 million globally against a budget of at least $250 million and a major multi-million-dollar marketing spend. The movie lost major altitude in its second weekend of play to finish Sunday with a domestic total of $148.9 million and global cume of $264.2 million.

Until now, Disney and Lucasfilm appeared unstoppable. Force Awakens, benefiting mightily from pent-up demand, earned $2.068 billion globally to rank as the No. 3 title of all time, not adjusted for inflation. The standalone title Rogue One: A Star Wars Story flew to $1.056 billion, while Star Wars: The Last Jedi grossed $1.332 billion. Since the expectations for any film in the Star Wars franchise are sizable, no one expected Solo to fly so low.
