However, the holiday weekend found the Star Wars prequel grossing $84 million over three days and an estimated $103 million over four days.
Solo: A Star Wars Story was expected to rake in $130 to $150 million (GBP97.7 - 112.7 million) domestically and $300 million (GBP225.5 million) globally, but the star-studded movies is now expected to just squeak past $100 million in North America and $148.3 million (GBP111.4 million) worldwide.

Unlike any "Star Wars" release before, "Solo" was deemed - gasp - skippable.
