Weekend Box Office Report: 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Remains Leader

Share

One of the new LEGO sets based on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, 75201 First Order AT-ST, is exclusive to Argos in the UK.

In total, the film has earned $517 total gross at the U.S. box office, a massive number for a film that opened earlier in December!

Carrie Fisher left us one year ago but as evidenced by the many recent tributes, her legacy and the impact she had on Star Wars fans never will cease.

Surprisingly, Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has proven to have legs at the box office, just narrowly being beaten out by Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Of course, this amount does not even count the fact that Star Wars: The Last Jedi has yet to air in China on Jan 5.

Kelly Marie Tran, who plays Rose Tico in the said sequel for "Star Wars", is now experiencing the toxic side of the online community for the franchise. While it's true that The Last Jedi saw a huge dip from its opening to its second weekend, that by no means represents that the film is "in trouble". The Last Jedi opened to a combined $450 million worldwide. The tentpole's global total will see a significant jolt when it opens on January 5 in China, its final market. The sequel had the second-biggest domestic opening of all time, is due to reach the $1 billion mark worldwide over the new year, and is on route to be the highest grossing film of 2017.

But "Star Wars" isn't the only film giving movie theaters a reason to smile. Its sequel and the final installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, Star Wars: Episode IX, will release in theaters on December 20, 2017.
