Weekend Box Office: 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Crossing $1 Billion Globally

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" pulled in $120.4 million globally on the New Year's Eve weekend with $52.4 million domestically and $68 million internationally during the Friday-Sunday period. Fellow Star Wars actor Mark Hamill honored Fisher on social media, while her daughter and fellow Star Wars actress Billie Lourd visited the Northern Lights in memory of her mother. Right now fans who're against The Last Jedi are using the rumor to help fuel the negativity, so it's good to hear Hamill strongly debunking the hearsay. Led by Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" was the fourth biggest movie of the year, while "Spider-Man: Homecoming" rounded out the top five. This, of course, does not include the millions of dollars Disney spent on production and marketing for the movies or the percentage that goes to movie theaters. To this point, "The Last Jedi" is 23 percent ahead of the pace set by "Rogue One" after two weeks in theaters, and 30 percent behind that of "The Force Awakens". So, Disney has always been making money off of Star Wars but it's still an impressive benchmark for the movies.

LEGO Star Wars 75201 First Order AT-ST is available now in the United Kingdom, exclusively at Argos. It also had an all-time best domestic gross of $936.7 million.

Then came Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the inaugural spin-off set in the larger universe of Star Wars. The drop-off for "Star Wars" sequels was also the case for "The Empire Strikes Back", which made $98 million less than the first "Star Wars" did during its initial run in 1980. According to the rumor, Lucasfilm executives chose to write off Luke in The Last Jedi during the film's post-production process, keeping the character's death from Hamill.

Manuel Lanzini Starts - West Ham Team vs Bournemouth Confirmed
Arnautovic said : "It can't be a goal for Bournemouth and it has to be a red card for Bournemouth , but that is football". I have no hesitation in playing any of them, so I don't think Jermain's injury forces my hand at all.

It was never expected to reach the heights of The Force Awakens, and The Last Jedi was facing some genuine competition during that second week in the form of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and The Greatest Showman.
