Latest Star Wars Film: $176M Opening and Mixed Reviews
December 23, 2019 2:00PM CST
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker‘s effort to wrap up 42 years of science-fantasy earned $176 million during it’s domestic opening weekend, making it the third-highest opening in 2019!
Even with those massive earnings, Skywalker earned the least out of the recent Star Wars trilogy (The Force Awakens earned $247 million while The Last Jedi earned $220 million on opening weekend).
Skywalker‘s mixed reviews could have contributed to the film’s comparatively modest earnings (but at least it wasn’t Cats; it only earned $6.5 million on opening weekend… yikes).
