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).
