The latest Star Wars movie “Solo,” which tells the story of Han Solo, is estimated to gross $101 million over Memorial Day Weekend — a record low for Star Wars movies, CNBC reports.

The big picture: Star Wars films have historically been knock out successes for Disney, but “Solo: A Star Wars Story” has performed far below expectations in the U.S. and overseas. Last week, Disney estimated the film would gross as much as $150 million over the holiday weekend.
