Weekend Box Office June 1-3: 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Plummets In Second Week

No doubt right now at this very moment there's panic at Lucasfilm. What went wrong? Solo, as I stated last week is well on its way to becoming the first Star Wars film to lose money in its entire over 40 year history. But even worse at this stage it's not only going to be one of the most expensive flops of the summer, but one of the biggest ones for the year as well. Though it was...

Weekend Box Office May 25-27: 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Underperforms. What Happened?

Disney/Lucasfilm's Solo: A Star Wars Story, recounting the early adventures of Han Solo, was the No. 1 film this weekend. It's no surprise there, but the real surprise was that it didn't come near the numbers that were projected for the film.

'Avengers: Infinity War' Has The Biggest Domestic Opening Ever As 'Black Panther' Moves Up The Top Ten List

Will Avengers: Infinity War out gross Black Panther? I predicted that it would a few weeks ago, and now I'm (pretty) sure of it. But first a word of advice: for all of you out there anxious to see the film because you have the impression that it's going to be a sort of unofficial Black Panther sequel, hold up; not so fast. Production began on Infinity War after shooting on Black...

Weekend Box Office April 13-15: 'Rampage' Inches Out 'A Quiet Place'

Well, it wasn't supposed to work out this way. It was assumed that the new Dwayne Johnson film, Rampage, would be the big winner this weekend by a mile. It even beat last week's No. 1 film, A Quiet Place on Friday night, but only by a million. But in the end, it just barely beat out A Quiet Place by less than $2 million. Rampage grossed $34.5 million much less than expected to Quiet...
