A box office flop no more! Solo: A Star Wars Story is no longer the worst performing Star Wars movie but you need to ignore some very important details to make it so.
It’s a shame really, Solo: A Star Wars Story is something many of us have wanted for years now and for one reason or another it flopped. Coming in as the worst performing box office Star Wars movie to be made, it has been overall, a bit of a disappointment.
But no more! Solo: A Star Wars Story can be officially be classed as the SECOND-to-worst performing box office Star Wars movie. Well, sort of anyway.

So far, Solo: A Star Wars Story has grossed approximately $210 million. That value puts it ahead of, what is personally my number one movie in the franchise, The Empire Strike Backs. Which grossed approximately $209 million.
So there you have it. For everyone who so desperately wanted Solo to succeed, including me, here is a ray of sunshine for you. It has grossed approximately $1 million more than The Empire Strikes Back. Finally, a win for the good guys!

Of course, there is the issue of inflation which should technically be taken into account, which we won’t. There is also the reissues which should probably be taken into account, which we won’t be taken account either, because you know, if we did, Solo just might (it will) slide back into last place.
But we will ignore those details. Solo needs a win. We wanted it to succeed and unfortunately its not been doing very well. So let’s take the win where we can get it.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is currently in theaters now.
