NEW YORK :

“Solo: A Star Wars Story” easily topped the Memorial Day weekend box office charts with $103 million from its first four days in theaters, but the pricey and troubled production launch failed to meet the high expectations of industry analysts and the precedent set by the three most recent “Star Wars” films.

“Solo” effectively kicked “Deadpool 2″ to second place in its second weekend in theaters, with $53.8 million, while “Avengers: Infinity War” landed in third place in its fifth weekend with $22.4 million.

“Book Club” took fourth place with $13.1 million, and the Melissa McCarthy comedy “Life of the Party” came in fifth with $6.9 million.
