Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has crossed over $400 million domestically after raking in $17 million on New Year’s Day.
The $17 million The Rise of Skywalker raked in on New Year’s Day is substantially higher than the restitution The Last Jedi received 2 years ago on the same day with $14.2 million. On the other hand, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story brought in $16.75 million in 2017, when the Disney era of Star Wars wasn’t doused in controversy. Of course, the beast for taking in the most money on New Year’s Day is Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which brought in a gob-smacking $34.3 million.
Deadline reports that the latest Star Wars film is currently sitting at $407.6 million. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is pacing well to hit the billion dollar mark, despite being one of the most critically maligned films in the Star Wars franchise. The Rise of Skywalker currently stands at $815.7 million worldwide, which means that in a couple short weeks, the film will join Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi in the billion dollar club.
Other films that topped the box-office this New Year’s Day include Jumanji: The Next Level and Little Women, which brought in $10.9 million and $5.25 million respectively for Sony. Adam Sandler fans also showed up to celebrate the new decade by supporting Uncut Gems, the latest film from A24, which raked in $3.1 million. As expected, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is the true beast at the box-office but there was considerable counter-programming for those who didn’t luck out on Star Wars tickets or weren’t interested in journeying to a galaxy far, far away.
