‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ To Hit $1.6 Billion Worldwide

1 min


Star Wars: The Last Jedi had a large drop at the box office this past holiday weekend at 54%. The smash-hit film is still projected to outearn 2012’s Marvel‘s The Avengers.

The Hollywood Reporter‘s box office insiders are expecting Star Wars: The Last Jedi to make about $1.6 billion worldwide by the end of it’s theatrical run at the box office. That would be about $600 million ahead of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and about $400 million behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The one market the movie has yet to open in is Chinese box office. China will be the deciding factor. The Last Jedi is expected to perform on-par or better than The Force Awakens, which earned $125 million in the Chinese market.

It will most likely end up being the fifth-highest-grossing movie of all time, behind Jurassic World ($1.67 billion), Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($2.07 billion), Titanic ($2.19 billion), and Avatar ($2.79 billion).

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now playing in theaters!

Luke Skywalker’s peaceful and solitary existence gets upended when he encounters Rey, a young woman who shows strong signs of the Force. Her desire to learn the ways of the Jedi forces Luke to make a decision that changes their lives forever. Meanwhile, Kylo Ren and General Hux lead the First Order in an all-out assault against Leia and the Resistance for supremacy of the galaxy.
