It becomes the ninth film of the year to surpass $800 million, and the fourth Disney release to do so after Beauty and the Beast, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Thor: Ragnarok. Nothing will ever be the same, and now the Star Wars universe and everyone's favorite character must adjust to everything that took place in The Last Jedi.
The eighth instalment of the blockbuster space saga topped the charts in North America for a second week, according to box office tracker Exhibitor Relations, pulling in US$99 million (S$133 million) from Friday through Monday to rack up total earnings of US$395.6 million since it opened last weekend. "At a gross of almost $750 million worldwide and a near even split between the North American and global gross after a little over a week in theaters, The Last Jedi is by any measure a great success, and the passionate debate over pros and cons of the film itself serve only to show the continued passion that fans have for this historic film series", says comScore analyst Paul Dergaragedian.
