    That would be great, fingers crossed. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think tracking is usually more or less on point for this kind of films. The actual numbers are often higher than predicted.

    Lately (over the last year or two, and especially with the blockbusters) that was true, but usually depends on the word of mouth - if it's good, than it could hit this number (or even a bit higher), if not, it will be lower.

    I feel like the general audience will still see it because its "Star Wars," they don't really think the same as the hardcore fans. The biggest problem going for it is Infinity War coming out a few weeks before and then Deadpool and Incredibles 2 coming out in the weeks right after.
    I feel like based off of the trailers that Solo will do better in China than TLJ did simply because the whole "putting together a crew" action flick seems way more in China's style.

    Deadpool is a week before and it will be the biggest money eater for Solo though Solo should have broader audience being PG-13 and being released during Memorial Day weekend in US. The Incredibles 2 is three weeks after.

    Maybe 100 if critics and fans love it.

    Solo will most likely premiere at Cannes Film Festival on May 15th.

    Fun fact - Revenge of the Sith also had its premiere at Cannes.

    The voice reminds me of Leia's disguise in ROTJ. So I think it sounds like a female.

    So, the movie probably starts with a track made by Williams himself. Nice! "Chicken in the pot" sounds kinda tasty. Excited for "Dice".
