'Last Jedi' Is 2017's Box Office Winner in a Women-Led Year

'Last Jedi' Is 2017's Box Office Winner in a Women-Led Year”

Led by Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" was the fourth biggest movie of the year, while "Spider-Man: Homecoming" rounded out the top five. Likewise, it does not cover the millions spent on production and marketing. It also does not factor in the sales from merchandising and other side revenues.

Walt Disney Studios has earned back the $4.06 billion cost to purchase Lucasfilm thanks to the new "Star Wars" films. With strong word of mouth from both critics and audiences, the film is aimed at the sort of family audiences that "Star Wars" hopes to keep coming into the theaters as kids are out of school on winter break. That would push The Last Jedi past Beauty and the Beast ($504 million) to become this year's highest-grossing domestic release.

Then came Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the inaugural spin-off set in the larger universe of Star Wars.

Actors Anthony Daniels, Joonas Suotamo, Lupita Nyong'o, Andy Serkis, Laura Dern, Benicio del Toro, Kelly Marie Tran, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Gwendoline Christie, Domhnall Gleeson, Writer/Director Rian Johnson, Producer Ram Bergman, Composer John Williams and Producer Kathleen Kennedy at Star Wars: The Last Jedi Premiere at The Shrine Auditorium on December 9, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in USA theaters on December 15, 2017. It was never expected to reach the heights of The Force Awakens, and The Last Jedi was facing some genuine competition during that second week in the form of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and The Greatest Showman. The gain came despite a 2.3% slide in USA box office, slammed by the worst summer in a decade as worldwide box office jumped 5%.
