'Star Wars' Fans Leave Coke Bottles At Lucasfilm To Honor Carrie Fisher

The space saga, featuring stars like the late Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley, earned $52.4 million at the domestic box office over weekend and another $120.4 million globally. The Last Jedi opened to a combined $450 million worldwide. After just three weeks in theaters, the film is officially set to top $1 billion at the global box office. Likewise, it does not cover the millions spent on production and marketing.

Fans have also defended Tran even citing notions such as white fragility, and others have called out fans on being unfair since they apparently only hate Rose and are taking it out on Tran. Star Wars: The Force Awakens achieved that milestone the fastest. So, Disney has always been making money off of Star Wars but it's still an impressive benchmark for the movies.

Mr. Scott also had a tough time over the weekend with "All the Money in the World" (Sony), a crime drama about the 1973 kidnapping of John Paul Getty III and his grandfather's refusal to pay a $17 million ransom. The Force Awakens is now the third highest grossing film ever made and it was largely fueled by the being the first significant Star Wars release in years and it also featured the return of the original cast. This means that one of the core messages of "Star Wars" is to set aside racial diversity for a noble goal.




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. Rogue One, a standalone movie from director Gareth Edwards released in December 2016, followed close behind with $1.056 billion ticket sales worldwide. As of this writing, the sequel sits at over $914 million.

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. That is the fifth largest opening in box office history.
