Disney’s Latest Star Wars Flick Flops in China

“Solo: A Star Wars Story” couldn't end the streak of underperformance by the franchise
Corrected

Walt Disney Co.’s “Star Wars” franchise may be one of its most lucrative but the films continue to be a flop in the world’s second-biggest cinema market. “Solo: A Star Wars Story” opened third over the weekend in China, with box office sales of about $10.1 million, behind two films that weren’t even premiering, according to Disney. Among the films that outperformed it was Disney’s own Marvel superhero hit, “Avengers: Infinity War” which continued its strong showing three weeks after its record $191 million opening weekend, according to Boxofficemojo.com.
