Ron Howard’s “Solo: A Star Wars Story” continues to reign as the king of the box office this weekend, despite a 65% drop. This is almost an identical drop to “Deadpool 2” from last week, which lands once again at Number 2, yet the naysayers continue to call “Solo” a box office failure, bringing in only $29.3 million in its second weekend. The first new release on the chart is the Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin drama “Adrift,” which brought in $11.6 million. That was enough to knock “Avengers: Infinity War” to Number 4 in its sixth weekend, while knocking “Book Club” to Number 5, rounding out the Top Five.

“Upgrade” missed the Top Five by about $2.5 million, coming in with $4.6 million at Number 6, while Johnny Knoxville comedy “Action Point” just landed within the Top Ten at Number 9 with $2.3 million capping off the new releases for the week. The Saoirse Ronan led “On Chesil Beach” enjoyed a nice bump over the weekend, jumping from Number 33 to 25 with $151,409. “The Rider,” instead of falling off the list this weekend, also enjoyed a nice jump from Number 25 to 20 with $232,434, holding on much better than I had imagined. Within the Top 25, “Solo” took the per theater average win as well, with an average of $6,710 per theater in 4,381 theaters while the actual winner, outside the list, was “American Animals” at Number 27, with an average of $33,698 in 4 theaters.

Falling out of the Top 25 were four big releases including “Blockers,” capping off an impressive 9 week run of almost tripling its production budget domestically, Wes Anderson’s “Isle Of Dogs,” which brought in an impressive $31.4 million, “Tully,” and “A Wrinkle In Time,” which hits home video tomorrow. That 65.2% drop by “Solo” was enough to give it the biggest percentage drop within the Top 25 this week while “Super Troopers 2” was second on that list with a 54% drop.

Next week, “Ocean’s 8,” “Hotel Artemis,” and “Hereditary” look to crash the list. “Ocean’s 8” will likely take the 2 week crown from “Solo,” looking to come in at a $45 million weekend. “Hotel Artemis” and “Hereditary” will not land as much but they will still be shoving some films off the list. The bottom three films, “Pope Francis: A Man Of His Word,” “How Long Will I Love U,” and “On Chesil Beach” could easily be pushed off the list.
