  • Star Wars The Force Awakens- Finn and Rey

Only in its second weekend on Chinese screens, The Last Jedi pulled in a paltry $2.4 million - a 92 percent decline from its disappointing $28.7 million debut, according to data from EntGroup.

To put that into some kind of context, the biggest drop in recorded United States box office history was the 2017 film Collide, which dropped 88.5% in its second weekend. It was it only the fourth film in history to earn over $200 million in its opening weekend.

Smith explains that "The Force Awakens" was the easier movie to like because it provided the "nostalgia rush" of being back in the "Star Wars" universe. "I think my producer was constantly horrified I would leave it in a coffee shop". Like when, you know, you're like, 'Alright the next movie is going to be all about Luke and I've seen Luke in the trailer and I know exactly who Luke Skywalker is and now he looks like Obi-Wan so he's going to be like this version of Obi-Wan, ' and then they give you a version of Luke that even Mark Hamill reportedly was like 'I don't know, is this really supposed to be Luke Skywalker?

We had so many theories two years ago about what we had seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and we all waited for Episode VIII to answer some of the many questions that J.J. Its sequel and the final installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, Star Wars: Episode IX, will release in theaters on December 20, 2017. It seems the roster of Heroes will be fairly deep, spanning all Star Wars timelines, with specific mention of Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Finn, Captain Phasma, Han Solo, Boba Fett, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, Jyn Erso and many more.
