    Default "Solo" 5/2018

    Haven't seen anything around here for it yet.. But it seems they are doing a story on Han Solo's early life this summer.

    I saw it, and i have no idea why i'm supposed to watch it. I like star wars, but what's the added value of this? At least Rogue One gave us the deathstar plan heist.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Solo's backstory. Yeah, they want to put butts in seats this Memorial day, but I think it's worth watching.

    Because that one country is where most of their sales come from?

    Domestic (US) total: $614,455,022

    Largest non-US take was the UK, with United Kingdom $110,354,551

    US take almost 6 times that of the next highest.

    Overseas territories make more money than the domestic market. Though true, the domestic market is the single largest market, for more than a decade now overseas is the biggest moneymaker. Which is why there's pandering to China for instance.

    “Domestic” should also shrink a little, as it isn’t just US. “Domestic” includes Canada for sure, maybe Mexico too? Not actually sure about MX, maybe not.

    In either case—neither Mexico nor Canada celebrate Memorial Day either.

    Just like we don't celebrate Cinco De Mayo in the US?

    I honestly have no idea how tongue-in-cheek that was meant to be, so I’ll just answer as though you were being serious.

    Memorial Day is literally not celebrated in Canada, at all. Our May holiday is Victoria Day (or colloquially, ‘the May 2-4’ - so-called because a case of beer is...a 2-4), and celebration (if that’s the right word to use in this context) of our soldiers’ sacrifices is Remembrance Day, on November 11.

    As I understand it, the SW franchise hasn't done well in China.

    I've heard stories like that, but i haven't heard why exactly this is the case. Many other movies do well in china and make a considerable profit there, so Star Wars is a bit of an odd one out.

    As a fan of Star Wars (generally) I'm not remotely interested in this Solo film.

    Alden Ehrenreich confirms he's on contract for three films.

    I suppose that doesn't mean he's guaranteed to do three films, but they have the option.

    So originally I was thinking we were getting 3 one-off Star Wars films in following episodes 7-9.

    So far we've gotten
    1) Rogue One (could be called episode 3.9)
    2) Solo (Part 1 of 3)
    3) I'm guessing this is where the next Saga will begin

    Rogue One was amazing and I'm hopeful the Solo film\franchise will be good but this is just different than expected.

    One of the three was the film that Josh Trank was supposed to direct, before he got fired and the release bumped back to 2020. They never said what it was going to be about, but speculation was rife that it would be about Boba Fett. And since the firing and delay, it’s been radio silence. I don’t even know whether it’s still happening or not.

    Other than that though, a couple other non-‘saga’ films have been announced:
    - Rian Johnson (director of TLJ) will be creating a non-numbered trilogy
    - David Benioff and DB Weiss (creators/showrunners of Game of Thrones) will make a ‘film series’
