The numbers from this past weekend’s box office sales are starting to come out and as expected, Star Wars: Episode VIII — The Last Jedi, crushed the box office. To the tune of $450 million USD globally with U.S. sales reaching $220 million USD.
Notable Quotes: “The worldwide figure ranks The Last Jedi as the No. 5 debut ever (No. 3 excluding the China starts of other films — SWTLJ does not go to the Middle Kingdom until January 5).” – Nancy Tartaglione of Deadline
“The consensus among sources is that this very well-reviewed entry will benefit from repeat viewings and feel a slower burn than [The] Force Awakens.” – Deadline
