Star Wars: The Last Jedi may be matching the ridiculous numbers that Star Wars: The Force Awakens did a couple years back, but it’s certainly no slouch, either.

According to Coming Soon, the latest entry in the saga has reached $536.7 million worldwide after six days. On Tuesday, it brought in $20.3 million domestically, dropping only around five percent from Monday, and $21.8 million internationally. All in all, it took in $42.1 million worldwide on Tuesday.

So far, the film has made $274.8 million in North America and $261.9 million internationally in total. The other big plus here for the film is that the film still has yet to open in China, and if The Force Awakens is any indication, the film can expect somewhere in the neighborhood of an extra $100 million.

All in all, the film is doing quite well for itself, and we can’t wait to see what this holiday weekend holds for the flick. Will it be able to hold up against the likes of The Greatest Showman, Pitch Perfect 3, and perhaps most relevantly, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle? We think it has a good chance considering how spoiler-ific the film is, but given the divisive reception among hardcore fans, it’s very hard to say.

Regardless, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is well on its way to easily breaking $1 billion.

    I’m picturing Rian Johnson, K. Kennedy, and a bunch of Disney suits all sitting around a planet size casino laughing all the way to the bank. They are profiting off of the nerd war.

    We fired someone today at another branch for spoiling The Last Jedi. Lot of hardcore fans there and we’re talking fistfights and threats from the staff to this guy. It was a big deal.

      Wow. Taking a break from laughing at Ep. 8, your workplace sucks. Seriously? That’s a potential lawsuit right there. You can’t fire someone unless it’s somehow work-related. The movie is already out and been so for nearly a week. How are you going to prove that your employees DIDN’T know of the movie’s plot points before that employee revealed it, especially given how horrible Episode 8 is?

      I used to work at a place where one of the managers got hammered every day in his office. Freakin’ every day. He’d go into his office, shut the door & just start draining the ol’ bottle. 3 hour lunches, too. The company forced him into rehab and he eventually “found work elsewhere.” Too many vendors complaining about him (not to mention the staff interactions) but that was all work-related.

      That is going to be one tough lawsuit to defend if this guy goes to even a journeyman employment lawyer. What kind of digital retention policy do you guys have because, in all seriousness, deletion of digital material over this is going to weigh heavily on a judge and, potentially, a jury.

      Good luck.

        Horrible!? I guess we did not see the same film, cause that movie was AWESOME!
        Mi opinion. Not defending the movie just the experience, that Kylo and Rey fight with the guards.. Daaaam!

    Can you imagine the firestorm that’ll occur in the Magic Kingdom if this thing underperforms compared to “Jurassic World”? It’s only $3M above JW at the moment domestic & JW cost a whole lot less to make. Citing global revenue is usually a sign that you’re desperate for good news. “But, in Zimbabwe, it made almost $100,000!”

    In all fairness, Disney gave it a December release, so it’ll get the Christmas / New Year’s bump but that’s also somewhat mitigated by a summer release’s generic weekday availability: Short-term versus long-term gains. The BO weekend drop in the next 3 weeks should be rather revealing, either way.

    I would be curious to see the breakdown in age of the people who are hating vs. liking TLJ. I’m 43 and enjoyed it quite a bit. That’s not to say there weren’t some moments (looking at you Carrie Poppins) that were off but every SW movie has some.
