Solo: A Star Wars Story tickets went on sale just in time for Star Wars Day on May 4th, and within the first 24 hours, it had doubled the ticket presales of Black Panther. The Star Wars spin-off sold enough tickets to have the second-best first day of presales in 2018.
However, it wasn’t enough to surpass the numbers Avengers: Infinity War put up.
The news of Solo‘s pre-sale tickets beating Black Panther is just the tip of the iceberg for the upcoming spin-off.
It was also reported this week that the movie is projected to make over $170 million on its opening weekend, which is already a record in itself for highest grossing Memorial Day opening in North American box office history.
Solo: A Star Wars Story opens in theaters on May 25th.
