In a bit of fairly obvious news, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is still decimating its competition at the box office with $24.6 million on its second Friday. This news leads analysts to believe that the movie will make $102 million over the four day Christmas weekend. For now, it’s earned a total of $321.2 million which is great. This could mean that the film could hit the $400 million domestic total by Monday!
The film faces some stiff competition this weekend as Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is expected to earn $43 million by Monday and a total of $60 million since opening earlier this week. Pitch Perfect 3, meanwhile, had a $10.6 million opening day for a total of $35 million by Christmas. The Hugh Jackman film The Greatest Showman is underperforming with $20 – $25 million.
So just how much money have you contributed to Star Wars: The Last Jedi? Personally, I have seen it twice, with a third viewing coming next week. Let us know how many times you have seen it in our comment sections on our various social media feeds.
