Is it really a surprise that Solo slipped through the cracks?
Disney is have a really big year, no doubt.
In addition to Solo, their 2018 releases include Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp, The Incredibles 2, Wreck-It Ralph 2, Christopher Robbin, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, and Mary Poppins Returns.
With their hands in so many cookie jars, the movies can't ALL be hits.
Solo was the first Star Wars movie from Disney that was released in May. It is also the first Star Wars movie from Disney to have an expected loss: 50 to 80 MILLION DOLLARS.
Marketing was terrible. Nobody really wanted this film in the first place. Disney and Star Wars will survive the hit, of course, but was it worth it?
Have you seen it yet? What did you think?
