CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Billboard Magazine reports:

The Force is being tested in a serious way. Disney and Lucasfilms’ Solo: A Star Wars Story is struggling in its debut at the Memorial Day box office, where it could come in well behind expectations with about a $110 million four-day holiday. The projected three-day weekend tally sees the movie just topping $90 million.

The Han Solo origin story is pacing well behind fellow standalone movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016), which took in $29 million in Thursday-evening previews on its way to a $71 million Friday and a three-day debut of $155 million.

Solo, directed by Ron Howard, is the first of the four titles in the revitalized Star Wars franchise to brave the summer box office, versus bowing in December.
