While he’s pretty well known for making the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs with the Millennium Falcon, Han Solo can now add another record to his rogue reputation.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is the No. 2 movie this year in terms of 24-hour presales, trailing only Avengers: Infinity War on both Fandango and Atom Tickets.
Tickets went on sale at 12:01 a.m. ET Friday morning, and sold double the tickets that Marvel and Disney’s Black Panther did in its first 24 hours.
Disney and Lucasfilm’s Solo is directed by Ron Howard, and is on track to earn more than $160 million over the four-day Memorial Day weekend. The film tells the story of the early days of fan favourites Han Solo and Chewie, and stars Alden Ehrenreich in the title role alongside Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke and Woody Harrelson.
