“Star Wars” was still rising in the last weekend of the year– topping the box office for a second week in a row.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker brought in $72 million over the weekend to remain the top-earning film in North America by light-years..
In 10 days of release it has brought in $362.8 million for Disney, falling just short of the earnings of its predecessor, 2017’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi in a comparable span.
Helped by the Christmas holiday week, “Star Wars” had a smaller-than-average 59% drop-off in its second weekend after earning $175 million in its first.
As of December 29th, The Rise of Skywalker made $704,330,816 globally.
