Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the last film in the Star Wars series, closed the box office first on the third weekend. Although the film went ahead in the US, it failed to capture the previous films of the series.
Disney’s latest Star Wars series, “Star Wars: The Rise of the Skywalker”, continues to be a high domestic box office performance in the United States. The film, which ranked first in the box office for the third week in a row, received $ 33.7 million last weekend. However, compared to the previous films of the Skywalker legend, the final film is somewhat stagnant by Star Wars standards.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’s total domestic revenue as of the third weekend is $ 450.8 million. That would have been a big record for any film that had been number one at the box office for three consecutive weeks, but “The Last Jedi”, released two years ago, was $ 531.5 million in three weeks, and The Force Awakens in 2015 2 million dollars, such as an unbelievable record.
Still, the key to a film is not how fast it will reach the $ 1 billion limit, but whether it will reach that limit. The Rise of Skywalker has reached the $ 1 billion band. The film’s worldwide revenue is now $ 918.8 million. However, it will be interesting to follow the next performance of The Rise of Skywalker. It is thought that the screening of the film may end before it reaches 600 million dollars domestic revenue. Previously, both The Force Awakens ($ 936.6 million) and The Last Jedi ($ 620.1 million) crossed the $ 600 million band.
Following the Skywalker legend at the box office this weekend was Sony’s “Jumanji: The Next Level”. The final weekend revenue of $ 26.5 million led to a total of $ 236 million in domestic revenue. In the third row, there is a rivalry competition between “Little Women” and “The Grudge”. Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of the classic Little Women’s weekend grossed $ 13.5 million. The Grudge’s revenue is $ 11.3 million.
