(Newser) – Is the world getting tired of a galaxy far, far away? The underwhelming debut of Solo: A Star Wars Story suggests as much over the Memorial Day weekend, per the Hollywood Reporter. The Disney and Lucasfilm prequel opened with a debut estimated around $83.3 million over three days and $101 million over four domestically, and even less overseas. (By contrast, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story launched to $155 million in North America.) Deadpool 2 scored an estimated $53.5 million over four days, followed by Avengers: Infinity War ($20.1 million), Book Club ($12 million), and Life of the Party ($5 million), Variety reports. These numbers will be updated Monday. (Read more box office stories.)
