‘The Last Jedi’ Now Opening To $220M: How Disney Continues To Win With The ‘Star Wars’ Franchise

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

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.

There's a certain scene in TLJ where the phrase "cash cow" could have a totally different (and potentially gross) meaning…

If you want a digital version of this film: turn to page March 13.
If you want a physical Blu-Ray/DVD version of this film: turn to page March 27.
If you want to attack the First Order alone: turn to page May 86.

May 86 is when I naturally assumed (as a kid) that the next adventure for Luke Skywalker would hit theaters and then that hope was treated like Charlie Brown on Halloween.

In my classroom, I have a small CB tin from Hallmark. Inside it: "I got a rock." No one knows; well, no one KNEW about that.

I just figured (pun ALWAYS intended on this site) if I’m going back in the past, might as well parody a Choose Your Own Adventure style. And let people know when the TLJ movies will be out for purchase.

Despite my obtuse post above, the video versions of TLJ are due out this coming Tuesday. Being my school’s spring break, I may get to look and listen very closely at some scenes, and enjoy the extras, this week. :)
