Monday Morning Box Office Report: The Rise of Skywalker Crosses $900 Million Worldwide


After dominating over the holidays, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker topped the box office once again this past weekend, hitting $450 million domestically and crossing the $900 million mark worldwide. The movie continues to track slightly behind Star Wars: The Last Jedi but at this point it should hit $1 billion without too much trouble, becoming Disney’s seventh 2019 release to do so. In second place, Jumanji: The Next Level also continued to perform well although not quite as well as its predecessor, bringing its total to $610 million worldwide. Little Women had an extremely strong hold from last weekend, earning another $13.6 million and jumping up to third place, while the only new movie in wide release, The Grudge, opened in fourth with $11.3 million. Frozen II rounded out the top 5. Other box office stories from over the past couple of weeks include Rian Johnson’s Knives Out, which is continuing to hang in the top 10 after 6 weeks, and Uncut Gems, which is well on its way to becoming A24’s biggest hit to date despite some general audience confusion resulting in a low CinemaScore. Elsewhere, Cats is dropping like a rock and is expected to lose from $70 to $100 million for Universal.
