'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Hits $1 Billion At Global Box Office

Mark Hamill initially felt upset by the way the character was written as well, however, the Star Wars legend later on admitted that he realized that Luke's path was what The Last Jedi needed. With strong word of mouth from both critics and audiences, the film is aimed at the sort of family audiences that "Star Wars" hopes to keep coming into the theaters as kids are out of school on winter break. Jurassic World was the second-fastest. This means that one of the core messages of "Star Wars" is to set aside racial diversity for a noble goal. 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. The film earned $230 in its first three days in foreign markets. Disney is expected to surpass this amount with the final sales of "The Last Jedi".

Star Wars is likely looking at some serious box office numbers for a few more years before that ceiling begins to level off.

The Last Jedi won't open in China, the largest worldwide market, until January.

"Beauty and the Beast", also a Disney release, netted out with $504 million for the year. Attendance declined by roughly 4 percent, to 1.26 billion, according to analysts, the lowest total in about two decades, as a string of big-budget films stumbled. But it's already in the top 10 highest-grossing films of all time domestically, and it's been out for less than a month.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi now has an 83.28 Composite Score. It's almost 2018, and you've only watched "Star Wars" three times. Horror movies, which do not quite play to the same effect on Netflix and other streaming services, were a particular bright spot for theaters, with films like "It" and "Get Out" becoming cultural sensations. Star Wars: The Last Jedi also has a 4.06 out of 5 User Rating.
