‘Rise Of Skywalker’ Wins Box Office

Star Wars Rise Of Skywalker

Though coming in notably behind the last two films in the trilogy, J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker easily banished the competition to a galaxy far, far away with a huge weekend launch of $175.5 million at the North American box office and $373.5 million globally.

Domestically, the movie scored the third-biggest December debut of all time behind Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015 ($248 million) and Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi in 2017 ($220 million).

The top 12 films of the weekend, as of Sunday, December 22, are as follows:
