  • Star Wars The Last Jedi

For frame of reference, that would be about $600 million ahead of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's $1 billion gross and about $400 million behind the most impressive $2 billion haul that Star Wars: The Force Awakens pulled.

A Star Wars fan claims to have seen the trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story and shared the details online. While many mainstream audiences seem to be pleased with Star Wars: The Last Jedi, there is an undeniable chunk of folks who hate everything the film brought to the table. That earned US$14 million. 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.

'Tiger Zinda Hai' crosses Rs. 100 crore in opening weekend
Tiger Zinda Hai is the sequel to Salaman's Blockbuster flick " Ek Tha Tiger " which is directed by Director Kabir Khan. On the second day , it reached Rs 35.30 crore, bringing its total to Rs 69.40 crore.

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. Should it reach that point, then it will be the fifth-highest-grossing movie ever, behind Jurassic World ($1.67 billion), Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.07 billion), Titanic ($2.19 billion), and Avatar ($2.79 billion).

After a lull on Christmas Eve, moviegoing picked up in earnest on Christmas Day as films saw huge day-over-day gains.
