Solo grossed $14.1 million in Thursday previews for a projected $35 million Friday.

These figures place Solo behind the previous standalone Star Wars film, Rogue One, which had a three-day opening weekend of $155 million. The tentpole has been forecast to lift off with $130 million to $150 million at 4,380 sites during the four-day Memorial Day weekend in North America. The movie took in a dismal $11.4 million from its first 43 markets on Wednesday and Thursday. The latest - Solo: A Star Wars Story - comes just months after Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Disney hasn't yet provided numbers from China, but box-office sources there show the movie opening to roughly $3 million on Friday for a possible weekend debut in the $10 million range.

Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy.

"Solo" follows Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo, who befriends his future co-pilot and Wookiee companion Chewbacca, and meets the gambler Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover).

Air Force Airmen in Charge of Nuclear Weapons were Tripping on LSD
Others described bad trips on the hallucinogen where they felt like they were dying, according to records obtained by the AP. Six airmen were convicted in courts martial of LSD use or distribution, and 14 were disciplined, according to the report .

The film originated years ago with an idea by Lawrence Kasdan, the screenwriter behind Empire Strikes Back.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge is L3-37 in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

"Solo" is the second of the "Star Wars" anthology films, which are being spun off as origin stories, following "Rogue One". The posters and print material all look fun and stylized, but the actual trailer looks gray and unsatisfying. Numerous characters get their time in the spotlight, although a couple, perhaps inevitably due to the heist nature of the movie, are given short shrift, and a few fall foul of either poor performances or scripting issues, and here's how they all stack up. Hopefully Solo will kick butt, but without Harrison Ford at the center of the action, it's hard to say! Over this long weekend, fans will get to decide for themselves if Kasdan and company created their own magic with Solo, but for Jon Kasdan's part, he at least wants you to know that he understands that feeling, and did his best to take you there.
