Star Wars at box office — Page 8

Budget usually doesn’t include promotion, but then again theatrical run doesn’t include home video, streaming, toys, ironing board covers, etc. etc.

I don’t think EP 9 is in any jeopardy, despite some hyperbolic comments to the contrary here.

Do you guys think Solo is going to outperform Episode IX?

I’m not sure why anyone in their right mind would think that.

Well Rogue One pulled a little over 1b so I guess you could argue that it’s possible if you think the TLJ performance is underwhelming.

Seems unlikely though.

I seriously doubt that any new Star Wars movie will threaten TFA/RO at the box office.

I agree with TFA (at least for the foreseeable future), but you really think TLJ will be the last SW movie to cross 1b?

My guess is that Solo won’t pass R1…

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.

TFA sure, be a long time till anything touches that, but RO? Really?

I’m putting them in different categories. Obviously Episodic releases have a better chance of outperforming spinoffs.

Ok that’s reasonable. You can see why we read it differently though.

That makes sense.

Arguably, the Han Solo movie will have bigger name recognition with causal and non fans than Rogue One did. Everybody knows Han and Chewie.

Rogue One made about $75 million more after the first three weeks at the box office. If TLJ has the same trend, it should end up at about $650 million at the end of its run. Not too shabby.

Coming so soon off the heels of TLJ, I think the Solo movie won’t have the benefits of the year-long marketing pushes for the previous three movies. I think that Solo won’t do as well as RO, but still pretty well.

But also Harrison Ford is Han Solo to everyone, so I’m not sure how much the public is interested to see a young Solo movie. Even I couldn’t care less about the film but will see it because Star Wars. Hopefully it would be so good that I can see pass the new faces.

I think that if Solo was to be released in December it’d have the potential to be bigger than Rogue One. But because it’s in May I think it probably won’t.

Or any marketing push.

At this point, the average fan probably doesn’t even know it comes out in 131 days.

And because of this December “tradition” that they’ve sort of established now, I’m sure a lot of people think it’s coming out next December.

You’ve got to wonder why they didn’t just push Solo back to December like they did with TLJ.

Is Disney really that scared of Aquaman?

Maybe they just need to recoup their investment as soon as possible.

Ron Howard reshooting most of Lord/Miller’s principle photography must have run the budget up quite a bit.

He’s also Indiana Jones, but four other actors have played younger or older versions of Indy.

And other than River Phoenix I couldn’t come up with one or even conjure an image in my mind of another person playing Indy.
And River was in the same film as Harrison!
