Disney has been somewhat rocked by Solo: A Star Wars Story’s opening weekend. The movie – the fourth Star Wars instalment released by the studio since purchasing LucasFilm for $4 billion – took just $103 million (£77.76) over the memorial weekend in the US, way down on the projected $130 million (£97.93 million) to $150 million ($112.99 million). Cinemagoers in the UK were also unreceptive to the spin-off, Solo managing just £7.6 million over the long weekend, including bank holiday Monday and Thursday previews. Overseas, the grand total for the weekend was just $68.2 million (£51.46 million), a figure seen as a major disappointment by all. For comparison: Rogue One, released December 2016, managed an opening weekend of $155 million (£116.96 million) in the States, and a four-day total of £17.3 million in the UK. The Gareth Edwards-directed movie – which went through a troubled production – ended up … [Read more...] about What does Solo’s box office stumble mean for the future of Star Wars?

NOKIA is looking to follow-up its comeback Android flagship phone, the Nokia 8, with an even flashier successor. And the latest leak pretty much gives away all its specs, including a mouth-watering triple camera set-up. We've rounded up all the news and rumours on the device, including those leaked features, and an all-important release date.Nokia 9 – what is it? The Nokia you knew and loved is no more, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The Finnish phone maker behind classics such as the 3310 and 3210 fell on hard times in recent years. In 2016, fellow Fins HMD Global snapped up the rights to the Nokia brand in the hopes of restoring it to its former glories. How was it planning to do that? By releasing the 3310...again. But the so-called "dumb phone" (dubbed that due to its lack of specs) turned out to be just one small weapon in its arsenal. Over the coming months, HMD pumped out a slew of Android phones, ranging from budget to mid-range devices. But it saved the … [Read more...] about Nokia 9 release date rumours – the latest news and leaks we’ve seen so far
Star Wars Battlefront 2, one of the biggest games of the year from perhaps the biggest franchise in the world, has received drastic changes in just its last moments. The run-up to the release of the game has been hindered by repeated complaints that it is fundamentally unfair. And that criticism focused on micro-transactions, which allowed people to pay sometimes substantial amounts of money to get access to new characters, weapons and other upgrades in the game. Many games include those purchases, and while they have proven controversial they are usually not enough to derail the game. Battlefront 2 received sustained criticism because the in-game purchases were so expensive, and gave people such a clear advantage over people who hadn't paid for them.
