Rise of Skywalker is officially a domestic star wars box office bomb, and will likely end up being a global star wars box office bomb once all the figures are in (compared to the previous films).Box Office tracker Box Office Pro initially predicted the film would bring in between $185 million and $225 million in its opening weekend. The film failed to hit the low end, only bringing in $177 million according to The Numbers.From there, the numbers get even bleaker. Box Office Pro predicted the film would end up grossing between $550 million and $750 million in its entire domestic box office run.However, Forbes is now reporting the film won’t top Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’s total domestic haul of $532 million. The Rise of Skywalker has currently grossed only $478 million. What makes the fact that it won’t top Rogue One is that Rogue One had a much smaller opening weekend. It opened to the tune of $155 million at the domestic box office.https://boundingintocomics.com/2020/01/12/star-wars-the-rise-of-skywalker-labeled-a-box-office-disappointment/

How much did it cost them to make this movie?
They made their $500 millions domestically. Still rather good for a bunch of CGI enhanced pursuits and flashing neon swords battles.
According to estimates of 275 million to make, I think she gets to keep her job.
Kathleen Kennedy: "How a typing pool member was almost fired but retained for her persnickity scheduling abilities, and ended up screwing one of the most lucrative franchises in Hollywood History"
Wow. That's one of the best summations of Kennedy's career I've read.
So common in history: You have a Great Administrator who rises to be a 4-star general or viceroy or Regent to an underage Monarch. They are great with managing schedules/budgets/organization, but because they've been in the field so long, they start to believe they are also engineers/military strategists/political geniuses/filmmakers when they are really just good staffers without a modicum of those other abilities.
Why do people keep voting for dems in CA? Same thing.
The biggest surprise downside is to the Merchandising, which are way below expectations.
Ok, looks like my prediction is on target, here's the web url on the box office gross https://www.the-numbers.com/box-office-records/worldwide/all-movies/cumulative/all-time It's going to pretty much be in that zone between 'Dark Knight Rises' and 'Avengers', as expected after a successful holiday week.Sorry, but that's enough financial success for Kathleen Kennedy to spend the rest of her career at Lucasfilm's helm. Yes, I know, life sucks and then you die.
Why would the third movie in a trilogy drop in box office receipts by 50% if it was a success? Has that ever happened in any other successful trilogy?
WORST box office total for any of the new trilogy movies
RC2006 saysWhy do people keep voting for dems in CA? Same thing.Stupid is as stupid does.
Man would fain be great, but sees that he is little.Would fain be happy, but sees that he is miserable.Would fain be the object of the love and esteem of his fellow man,But sees that his faults only merit their contempt and aversion.The embarrassment wherein he finds himself creates the most criminal and unjust feelings imaginable for he conceives a mortal hatred of those truths that condemn him.
That boardroom thought that most feminist is lesbo shit would give them extra market share, and not alienate current audience. That’s why she’s there.
but Star Wars is/was simply a tool in their revenue generation to get people to the parks.
2 years ago we went to Disney and easily spent close to $4-5k in and on Disney properties. What do you think Disney netted from that purchase? That's what they're going for. Not sure the hang up on a movie executive, who is likely a cunt as has been mentioned. Unless an absolute bomb, Disney simply doesn't care in the grand scheme of their business as Rin has mentioned. And yes, they want popular movies, but Star Wars is/was simply a tool in their revenue generation to get people to the parks.
Wookie, the Park side of that has also been underwhelming. 3% drop in a booming economy, despite a $1B investment by Disney. They've eliminated and not replaced a boatload of executives in charge of the facilities, as well. They promised investors big returns on investments that are underperforming.
