‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ takes US$450m on opening weekend
    2017-December-19  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE latest “Star Wars” film generated more than US$450 million in global ticket sales on its opening weekend.

The total for “The Last Jedi” includes US$220m from box offices in the U.S. and Canada, placing the film second in the all-time list for North America.

It trails behind the 2015 release “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” which opened with a record-breaking US$248 million.

But the sum dwarfs that of its nearest rival, the computer-animated comedy Ferdinand which took US$13 million.

In third place, the Disney/Pixar animation “Coco” brought in just over US$10 millon during its fourth weekend in North American cinemas.

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is the eighth installment of the 40-year-old space saga and is directed by Rian Johnson, whose credits include “Brick and Looper.”

It sees Mark Hamill and the late Carrie Fisher reprise their roles as Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia.

British actors Daisy Ridley and John Boyega also return from “The Force Awakens.”

The film has been widely praised by critics, and has a score of 93 percent on the film review website Rotten Tomatoes.

Will Gompertz, the BBC’s Arts Editor, gave it four out of five stars and said it was “packed with invention, wit, and action galore.”
