Star Wars: The Last Jedi has closed out the last weekend of 2017 by officially crossing the $1-Billion mark at the worldwide box office. This makes the Rian Johnson film the highest grossing film of 2017, topping Disney's Beauty And The Beast for the top spot.
This has been a rather robust weekend at the box office, one that allowed Star Wars: The Last Jedi to bring in an additional $52.4-Million from 4,232 theaters for the three-day weekend and a projected $65.6-Million for the four-day holiday weekend, putting the film's North American total at roughly $530 million through Monday.
Heading overseas, the film brought in another $68-Million for an international total of $523.3-Million and a very healthy global total bank of $1.04-Billion.
This means that the film will soon bypass the total $1.06-Billion global haul made by Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story from earlier this year. That film was the first Star Wars spinoff set outside of the main Skywalker saga, and followed a group of Rebel spies as they attempt to steal the plans to the Empire's Death Star battle station.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which opens in China on January 5th, sees Rey expanding her knowledge of The Force with the help of a rather cagey Luke Skywalker, while the Resistance attempts to survive their battle against Kylo Ren and the First Order.
Starring Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie, and Laura Dern, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is in theatres now!
