Ron Howard's Solo: A Star Wars Story is just a few months away, and now the first long range box office projections for the spinoff have been released! According to Box Office Pro, the film is tracking toward a $150-Million domestic debut come May 25th. This puts it just slightly below the $155-Million brought in by Gareth Edwards' Rogue One back in 2016.
While it's still early, and numbers could very well change, the outlet also believes that the movie could finish its theatrical run here in North America somewhere in the ballpark of $390-$475-Million depending on reviews and word of mouth from audience members.
Of course, like we said, with it still being rather early, these numbers can and probably will change, so don’t take this as set in stone just yet. After all, the trailer was met with an overall positive response following the Super Bowl. Plus, we're hearing that many are excited to check the movie out next moth, so who knows what the final numbers will be at this point in time.
Come what may, there's no doubting that the Force is Strong with the Star Wars brand, so we've no doubt that Solo: A Star Wars Story will bring in some good bank at the box office.
