2017 at the Box Office

  • Star Wars Storms-of-Crait

At the the same time, The Last Jedi is already passing up the entire lifetime gross of standalone film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ($1.06 billion).

After just three weeks in theaters, "Star Wars: Episode VIII" has surpassed the domestic box-office haul of "Beauty and the Beast", which spent more than four months in theaters across the country and made just over $500 million in the U.S.

Taking the No. 1 spot for the third week in a row is "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", bringing in an estimated $52 million. Fellow Star Wars actor Mark Hamill honored Fisher on social media, while her daughter and fellow Star Wars actress Billie Lourd visited the Northern Lights in memory of her mother.

Walt Disney Studios has earned back the $4.06 billion cost to purchase Lucasfilm thanks to the new "Star Wars" films.

Fans have also defended Tran even citing notions such as white fragility, and others have called out fans on being unfair since they apparently only hate Rose and are taking it out on Tran.

Gaming Disorder added to list of 2018 diseases
Second, some research has indicated that "video game addiction" is not a stable construct and clinical impairment might be low. Not everyone who likes to play video games has gaming disorder - plenty of people play video games without getting a diagnosis.

The eighth installment of the "Star Wars" franchise became the highest grossing film in the US for 2017 over the New Year's weekend, beating out "Beauty and the Beast". So, Disney has always been making money off of Star Wars but it's still an impressive benchmark for the movies.

Photo "Despicable Me 3" was the only animated film to rank among the year's 10 biggest ticket sellers.

Finally, there's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which will probably finish somewhere between the total earnings of The Force Awakens and Rogue One.

Neither box office analysts nor Disney expected "Last Jedi" to match the gross for "The Force Awakens", which had the advantage of being the first "Star Wars" movie in a decade to be released.

The Last Jedi made a splash in its worldwide opening weekend. If you'd like to contribute, you can always see Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is in theaters right now.
