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

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Narrowly Wins Last Weekend Box Office of 2017

Star Wars: The Force Awakens achieved that milestone the fastest.

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.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is enjoying a wave of overwhelming critical and commercial success, however, there are fans that feel upset that the film subverted expectations and changed the direction of Star Wars lore.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi earned $68 million from 54 worldwide markets over the weekend.

Ten films in (if you include the animated Clone Wars), the Star Wars franchise is as popular as ever, and The Force remains strong.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now showing in theaters everywhere. Disney-Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2", its "Thor: Ragnarok" and Warner Bros.' "Wonder Woman" all took in more than $800 million each on a worldwide basis.

In total, the film has earned $517 total gross at the U.S. box office, a massive number for a film that opened earlier in December! Domestically, The Last Jedi is the highest grossing movie of the year. Fellow Star Wars actor Mark Hamill honored Fisher on social media, while her daughter and fellow Star Wars actress Billie Lourd visited the Northern Lights in memory of her mother. Rogue One, a standalone movie from director Gareth Edwards released in December 2016, followed close behind with $1.056 billion ticket sales worldwide. The official LEGO online store is now selling the LEGO Star Wars 2018 range, but does not yet have this particular set in stock.
