While both the critic and audience score on Rotten Tomatoes for Star Wars: The Last Jedi remain firmly divided, currently sitting at 91 percent for critics and 48 percent for audiences, the film has passed the $1.3 billion mark worldwide at the box-office, with a fairly even split between foreign and domestic audiences. The film raked in $610 million domestically and just over $700 million overseas.
The film’s earnings come up short to the trilogy’s previous installment, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which took in over $2 billion dollars worldwide, and even though The Last Jedi still has some time left in its theatrical run, there’s now way it’ll get anywhere near The Force Awakens (not that it should have been expected to). The total for The Last Jedi is still an impressive box-office performance and should please the higher-ups at Lucasfilm.
Of the three Star Wars films released by Disney, The Last Jedi takes the number two spot, edging out Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which brought in just over $1 billion worldwide.
No matter your feelings on the film, you cannot deny it is a box office juggernaut. That being said, it hasn’t been a home run in all territories, as The Last Jedi recently saw a 92 percent decrease in showings in China in its second weekend, pulling in just $40 million during its run, while its predecessor, The Force Awakens, took in over $120 million.
