More on Solo Flopping

Others are not shying away from the dreaded terminology of outright box office failure:

"'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Bombs With $148M Global Debut" (Scott Mendleson, Forbes).

"Solo: A Star Wars Story Flops With Disappointing Opening Weekend" (Matt Joseph, We Got This Covered).

My guess? We are going to see more of this kind of language used in relation to this film, and even if the film defies the odds (by doing better in upcoming days, or internationally), the "flop" perception will stick.
