2017 at the Box Office

2017 at the Box Office

Disney is expected to surpass this amount with the final sales of "The Last Jedi".

The eighth installment in the Star Wars science-fiction franchise earned an estimated $52-million for a third straight first-place finish at the holiday box office.

"Beauty and the Beast", also a Disney release, netted out with $504 million for the year.

Make it three in a row for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Carrie Fisher left us one year ago but as evidenced by the many recent tributes, her legacy and the impact she had on Star Wars fans never will cease. It is pacing 36 percent of ahead of last year's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The official LEGO online store is now selling the LEGO Star Wars 2018 range, but does not yet have this particular set in stock.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is globally the fourth highest grossing movie of 2017. While it's true that The Last Jedi saw a huge dip from its opening to its second weekend, that by no means represents that the film is "in trouble".

Actors Anthony Daniels, Joonas Suotamo, Lupita Nyong'o, Andy Serkis, Laura Dern, Benicio del Toro, Kelly Marie Tran, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Gwendoline Christie, Domhnall Gleeson, Writer/Director Rian Johnson, Producer Ram Bergman, Composer John Williams and Producer Kathleen Kennedy at Star Wars: The Last Jedi Premiere at The Shrine Auditorium on December 9, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. The gain came despite a 2.3% slide in U.S. box office, slammed by the worst summer in a decade as global box office jumped 5%. Worldwide box office had hit a record $38.9 billion in 2015 and then edged down slightly in 2016 to $38.8 billion, so Disney-Luscasfilm's "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" provided almost all of the gain for 2017. If you'd like to contribute, you can always see Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is in theaters right now.
