“Solo: A Star Wars Story” was the most popular movie for the second straight week in North America, with an estimated $29.3 million through Sunday evening, officials at Disney said.
That brought the Star Wars anthology movie to an 11-day total of $148.9 million in the United States and Canada. Add in worldwide ticket sales, and the movie was estimated with global cumulative sales of $264.2 million so far.
