Disney's 'Rise Of Skywalker' Earns $374M Worldwide Opening Weekend

It is also the first Star Wars movie made by Lucasfilm and Disney to not to earn an A or A- from audiences. The Star Wars movie was the last chapter in the Star Wars trilogy.

According to industry estimates, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker's opening weekend is projected at around $179M+ at the box office.

In 2015, "The Force Awakens" earned $247.96 million in the US, while "The Last Jedi" took in $220.04 million in 2017. However, for a Star Wars movie, it isn't an impressive number to flaunt. Only Disney has ever brought in over $100 million in its 3-day opening weekend during the month.

With the fan reception not necessarily the most positive, it's hard to image Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will achieve the same amount of repeat-viewings that The Force Awakens enjoyed in 2015. Assuming these will be the last Star Wars cosmetics we get: which Star Wars cosmetics did you want to see? The JJ Abrams directorial registered the 12th highest opening weekend box office collection of all time and the third largest December opening of all-time.

"What we're watching organically this weekend are all the faithful Star Wars fans showing up Thursday and Friday, with the moderate ones yet to come".

Directed by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, Keri Russell, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Ian McDiarmid, and Billy Dee Williams. Have you watched Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker yet?

Abrams also put to rest any notion that there was any discord between him and The Last Jedi filmmaker Rian Johnson.
