Monday Morning Box Office Report: Star Wars: The Last Jedi Scores Second Biggest Debut Ever


Well it couldn’t top The Force Awakens but Star Wars: The Last Jedi was still an absolute monster at the box office over the weekend, rocketing to an estimated $220 million debut. That’s the second highest domestic debut ever and it puts the movie on track to earn somewhere between $750 and $800 million from the U.S. alone when all is said and done. It also added another $230 million internationally to bring its initial worldwide total to $450 million. In second place, Fox’s Ferdinand was a definitely disappointment, earning just $13.3 million (the lowest start ever for a Blue Sky animated film). Coco fell to third, followed by Wonder and Justice League. Elsewhere, James Franco’s The Disaster Artist dropped 59% from last weekend despite the fact that it expanded to over 1000 screens. It would appear that the film’s niche audience has been exhausted and it may not become a breakout hit after all.

    I had such high hopes for a Rian Johnson directed Star Wars. I’m not sure what happened…
