In the three weeks since its release, Star Wars: The Last Jedi has earned a total of $1.04 billion worldwide. It is now the fourth 2017 film to have passed the $1 billion mark in worldwide grosses alongside Beauty and the Beast, Despicable Me 3 and The Fate of the Furious. The film earned a domestic take of $52.4 million and an international take of $68 million during the New Year’s Eve weekend, resulting in a global earning of $120.4 million.
Domestically, the film is in the top ten highest grossing movies having grossed $517.1 million since its mid-December release. It is currently the eighth highest domestic gross for a film, right behind 2016’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Worldwide, it is #24 in the top twenty-five highest grossing movies, beating out Despicable Me 3. In addition, it is now the highest grossing 2017 film in domestic markets, having earned more than Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast.
The Last Jedi has yet to be released in China, so its international theatrical run will not be finished anytime soon. The film is set to be released on January 5th in that country, thus continuing its theatrical earnings for a greater amount of time.
