Media Already Making Excuses for "Solo: A Star Wars Story"
According to CNN, the new Solo movie brought in $14.1 million on Thursday night--"half of what 'Rogue One' brought in on its opening Thursday." So, the story that CNN is now advancing is that moviegoers are suffering from "Star Wars fatigue" and pointing out that it has only been 5 months since The Last Jedi was released. I guess we'll see how the numbers add up after the weekend, but given what I've heard about The Last Jedi (I still can't bring myself to watch it), Disney may have put the franchise into a death spiral.
