It also crossed the $1 billion mark globally after just three weeks in theaters.

Kelly Marie Tran, who plays Rose Tico in the said sequel for "Star Wars", is now experiencing the toxic side of the online community for the franchise.

At the domestic box office, however, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is close behind The Last Jedi, earning second place with an estimated $50.6 million.

Cowboys beat playoff-bound Eagles 6-0
This is the first time the Eagles have been shut out at home since 2005, and thankfully, it came in a game that does not matter. Eagles P Donnie Jones ran onto the field for a punt with his warmup trousers still on and had to rip them off before the snap.

Chelsea v Stoke City
Conte will likely rotate his side as he has done all December as Chelsea play at least two games a week. For sure, from the human aspect, I'd like to give him an opportunity to come back stronger like before.

Then came Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the inaugural spin-off set in the larger universe of Star Wars. That number is set to rise, however, as the film is estimated to rake in $72 million over the course of the four-day weekend, which should up its domestic total to $537 million through Monday. Right now fans who're against The Last Jedi are using the rumor to help fuel the negativity, so it's good to hear Hamill strongly debunking the hearsay.

Star Wars is likely looking at some serious box office numbers for a few more years before that ceiling begins to level off. Pre-sales in that market picked up recently. The Force Awakens is now the third highest grossing film ever made and it was largely fueled by the being the first significant Star Wars release in years and it also featured the return of the original cast. Attendance declined by roughly 4 percent, to 1.26 billion, according to analysts, the lowest total in about two decades, as a string of big-budget films stumbled. This makes the movie the eighth-highest grossing domestic film of all time. It's almost 2018, and you've only watched "Star Wars" three times. The amount does not include the sales for the Star Wars attractions at its theme parks and movie merchandising. Star Wars: The Last Jedi also has a 4.06 out of 5 User Rating. Its sequel and the final installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, Star Wars: Episode IX, will release in theaters on December 20, 2017.
