LOGAN Director in Talks for BOBA FETT Film - Report

Most Fans Forgot Boba Fett Would Be Star Wars’ First Lead of Color & That’s a Problem

If Solo: A Star Wars Story left you eager to see more of the film's ensemble of characters, a new Forces of Destiny short might be right up your alley. Three-day opening estimates are now sitting at $82 million, well below the $108.4 million "Revenge of the Sith" made in its first weekend. It ultimately earned $523 million overseas.

The Han Solo origin film began its global run with a dismal $65 million this weekend.

The movie started out strong with $14.1 million in Thursday previews, a record for Memorial Day weekend.

Meanwhile, "Avengers: Infinity War" crossed $1.9 billion this weekend, and is now about $96 million away from becoming the first summer film to gross $2 billion worldwide. That figure represents a rather steep decline of 66 percent in its second frame, and brings its domestic total to $207.4 million after 10 days in theaters. We have countless Star Wars TV shows, Star Wars video games, Star Wars reality shows, and of course, Star Wars films. Looking at past Memorial Day hits, the best-case for this latest Star Wars is a Monday box office of roughly $25 million, at best.

Most Fans Forgot Boba Fett Would Be Star Wars’ First Lead of Color & That’s a Problem
Boba Fett standalone movie confirmed with ‘Logan’ director James Mangold

"Solo" came in with a Millennium Falcon's worth of baggage following the mid-production firing of directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who were replaced by Ron Howard.

Our review of Solo describes the movie as "uninspired and visually boring", albeit with intriguing potential for a sequel. Disney and Lucasfilm are not only creating the ninth installment in the flagship series that "A New Hope" kicked off in 1977, but they're also releasing anthology stories focused on singular characters. It's also expected that he'll be joined by Simon Kinberg, who worked to co-write the Logan script with Mangold, in a both a writing and producing role.

In this field, the "Solo" opening doesn't look so bad. "Solo" opens next weekend in Croatia and Trinidad.

In this edition of Star Wars Bits... It also marks the lowest debut for the modern Star Wars films. With "Solo" opening five months after "The Last Jedi", audiences just weren't motivated for another story from the saga that quickly, even one about one of its most legendary characters.
