'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' still dominating

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' still dominating

According to The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi (via Screen Rant), Johnson admitted that he was terrified to do away with the character's seemingly iconic look.

Warning: This article contains spoilers for "Star Wars: The Last Jedi". It is already the top grossing film of 2017 in both Denmark and Sweden and the fourth highest grosser in the overall European market.

The UK leads all markets with $67.9M, followed by Germany ($42.6M), France ($31.1M), Japan ($29.6M) and Australia ($27.2M).

By Tuesday's end, the film will have surpassed $800 million worldwide.

Director Rian Johnson's distinctive take on the sci-fi franchise has been equally lauded by critics and audiences alike. The eighth installment in the Disney-owned space saga is expected to add another almost $69 million to its coffers over the weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. But moviegoers are showing little interest in Paramount's "Downsizing" and Warner Bros. The film remained at the top spot by bringing in $68 million during its second weekend and is expected to reach $100 million domestically by Monday. It faced competition for the first time on December 20, with Sony's action comedy "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle", which is leading the rest of the pack with $34 million at 3,765 sites for Friday-Sunday and a six-day total of around $64 million.

Sony's president of distribution, Adrian Smith, said he was "absolutely pleased" with the performance of "Jumanji" so far. "We have incredible momentum as we go into the biggest moviegoing week of the year", he added. That's never really happened in Star Wars before. Its top performance came in the United Kingdom with a second-place finish at $10.1 million including previews.

Pitch Perfect 3 came in third place with $20.4 million and is now expected to finish around $27 million through its first four days of release. The musical comedy, this time directed by Trish Sie, brings back together Anna Kendrick, Hailee Steinfeld, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow and others as the Barden Bellas, sending them on a USO tour to entertain American troops. Father Figures opened in ninth place with $3.2 million and should finish around $4 million over its opening weekend.
