Week Fall: Weekend and Cent

week fall: Solo has now earned 148.9 million domestically, which is still shy of Rogue One's December 2016 opening weekend of 155.1 million and over 135 million short of where Rogue One was in its second weekend, according to CTV. The 65 per cent drop off is one of the highest in recent Star Wars history, although it is less steep than the second week fall of the franchise's last film, Star Wars The Last Jedi, which slid 67.5 per cent in weekend two this past December -- but, that was also after a 220 million debut. After an underwhelming launch, the space saga fell 65 per cent in weekend two with US 29.3 million from North American theatres, according to studio estimates on Sunday. Internationally, Solo added 30.3 million, and globally the film has netted 264.2 million. Box office got conflated with perceived value of the movie and that might have affected its second weekend, Dergarabedian said. Paul Dergarabedian, the senior media analyst for com Score, thinks that all the media attention given to Solo's less-than-impressive opening weekend numbers could have actually negatively affected its second weekend earnings.
