Boba Fett movie being made by Logan director James Mangold

Most Fans Forgot Boba Fett Would Be Star Wars’ First Lead of Color & That’s a Problem

Estimates for "Solo: A Star Wars Story" are continuing to fly low. Presumably, the Fett movie will tackle the story of how he goes from that moment to the notorious villain that captured Han Solo later in life. The movie opened to a disappointing $83.3 million over the three-day weekend, suggesting a $101 million four-day debut. But considering that any new Star Wars films won't want to associate themselves too closely with the poorly-received prequels, it's likely a brand new Boba will be cast. The character's backstory was touched on in "Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones" as well as "The Clone Wars" animated series. But back in 2002 that was quite a feat - counting inflation, that would be a $126.1 million opening in 2018. "The good news is that the next film isn't until December 2019". "Solo" grossed $65 million internationally in its opening weekend, including a paltry $10.1 million in China.

Memorial Day weekend is traditionally not the strongest time to open a mega-blockbuster.

In order for Solo to take Pirates' record for the full Memorial Day Weekend, the film will have to surpass $153 million.

One the one hand, that's not a huge dent to Solo's opening days in theaters. But the rules change when you talk about "Star Wars".

Solo: A Star Wars Story is in cinemas now.

M&S profits slump on store closure costs
M&S announced on Tuesday that it was accelerating its reorganisation with the closure of 100 United Kingdom stores by 2022. However, the M&S boss highlighted that these changes come with costs, which were reflected in Wednesday's results.

This was mostly because he just looked really cool and could fly.

Disney disagrees, noting that Marvel movies come out at even shorter intervals - "Thor: Ragnarok" in November, "Black Panther" in February, "Infinity War" in April.

The group of marauders also included Star Wars stalwart Warwick Davis, in a role in which he finally got to show his face. Also, things are a lot easier when both movies close to one another are great.

After a brilliant sequence in which she liberates many other droids on Kessel while Han, Qi'ra (Emilia Clarke) and Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) steal coaxium fuel, she gets shot during the ensuing firefight.

Boba Fett first appeared in the Star Wars Holiday Special (If you've never seen it, please watch it for as long as you can).
