In news that will be sure to spark more debate among our readers, Star Wars: The Last Jedi has crossed over the $600 Million domestic mark.
The movie now sits about $23 million behind Marvel’s Avengers, and most of those that really keep track of these number say that it should overtake that mark soon. If everything plays according to projections, the movie should finish in the top five movies all time.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi currently sits at $1.274 billion, which projections should have it overtaking the ninth spot globally all time. That spot is currently held by Disney’s Frozen.
The movie is now on the downward slide out of theaters with the approaching home release in a couple of months. The number of theaters showing the film dropped to 2,456 in the US, which is down another 634 screens.
It just goes to show the power that Star Wars has at the box office and in pop culture. Comments are of course, always welcome…
