Stay tuned for a post about "The Last Jedi" at the box office. Star Wars!That's what I promised to end 'Game of Thrones,' 'The Handmaid's Tale,' and 'Stranger Things' nominated for Drama Series at the 2018 WGA Awards. It was as good an opening weekend as I expected it would be. Newsy reports 'Last Jedi' has record-breaking $220M weekend.
Before "The Last Jedi" even made it to theaters, the "Star Wars" franchise had made more than $7 billion at the box office worldwide.Yes, $220 million in the U.S. and $450 million worldwide. It may not be as spectacular as "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" but it's certainly better than "Rogue One." "The Last Jedi" is already the tenth highest grossing film of the year, knocking "Justice League" out of the top ten, making more money in one weekend than DC's superhero team-up did in one month. Next week, I expect it will pass "Thor: Ragnarok" and maybe even "It" to hit fifth or sixth. Stay tuned.
