Star Wars: The Last Jedi had a fantastic Saturday drawing an estimated $64M per industry figures as of this morning, which ranks as the fourth best ever after Jurassic World ($69.6M), The Avengers ($69.55M), and Star Wars: Force Awakens ($68.3M).
Technically speaking, Last Jedi‘s business isn’t frontloaded: If you back out the $45M out of Friday’s $104.8M, Saturday’s ticket sales are actually up over Friday ($59.8M) by 7%. This puts the Rian Johnson-directed sequel at a weekend opening of $220M according to Disney which is still the second best ever behind Force Awakens’ $247.966M. Industry figures are around $219M for the weekend.
