Unfortunately, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was part of the later, as it fell 59% to $72.39 million over the weekend.
However, this was still a dominate performance at the box office, earning more than the next three films combined.
Granted, this is 20% lower than last weekend, but more importantly, it is 5.0% higher than the same weekend last year.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker recovered a little bit from Sundayâs estimates to earn $177.38 million for the full weekend.
While it is always better to beat estimates, this isnât a large enough margin to really matter in the long run.
Internationally, the film made $197.7 million in 52 markets to give it a worldwide opening of $375.1 million.
There are some mixed results on the weekend chart with some films topping expectations, while others are struggling mightily. »
