THE RISE OF SKYWALKER succumbs to 1917 at the box office



After four weeks at the top of the box office, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has finally succumbed and fallen in to second place. The Disney picture has been replaced in the top spot by Universal’s (eOne in the UK) World War 1 epic, 1917.

1917 is co-written and directed by British director Sam Mendes (Spectre) and this week expanded nationwide in both the US and UK following a two-week limited release period. The film took an estimated $36.5m in North America and has grown to $60m worldwide through it’s wide-opening weekend.

Falling in to second place, The Rise of Skywalker grows ever closer to passing the $1b mark. Though its reaching the landmark at a slower pace than expected the film has still grossed $989.6m worldwide in just four weeks.

Over the weekend the ninth, and final, film in the Skywalker-saga took an estimated $15m in North America, another drop of around -57% on the previous week. The film also added a further $24.2m from international markets.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is in cinemas now!
