'Solo' second weekend box office stalls, 'Adrift' opens number three

'Solo' second weekend box office stalls, 'Adrift' opens number three

Unfortunately for Disney and Lucasfilm, good word of mouth did not help the movie at the box office. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and risky criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga's most unlikely heroes.

That's a steep 65% drop from its Memorial Day weekend. It didn't fare much better internationally either with an additional $30.3 million, taking its worldwide haul to $264.2 million.

It is falling far behind in the iconic space franchise.

Walt Disney Co.'s hope that the latest "Star Wars" installment would attract audiences after its disappointing opening proved unfounded, as the movie made a lackluster $29.3 million in the USA and Canada during its second weekend in theaters.

It seems that the film's misfortunes continued through its second weekend as well.

To date, the Ryan Reynolds-led sequel has made $255 million in North America and $600 million globally.

It anchored with $11.5 million and a global take of $11.8 million. This weekend Infinity War brought in $10 million domestically, bringing it's domestic total to $643 million.

The Marvel-Disney film, starring a slew of superheroes and superstars, brought in another $24.3 million this weekend for a global tally of an equally super $1.96 billion.

However, this was still enough to put it at the top of the box office charts, just ahead of Deadpool 2, which pulled $23.8 million on its second weekend. It has yet to open overseas.

Holding down the fifth spot domestically, Paramount's Book Club, with its quartet of seasoned actresses Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenbergen, hung in as it picked up $6.8 million for a new domestic cume of $47.3 million.
