'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' Awakens to $40 Million at Thursday Box Office https://t.co/yypiSXdG5u— TheWrap (@TheWrap) December 20, 2019
Surprise, surprise, "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" is obviously going to top the box office this weekend. It already made an insane $40 Million from sold-out Thursday night shows in U.S./Canada, and is expected to bring in around $170M-$200M this weekend (on a $250M–300M budget).
On a related note, apparently it's bombing in China, which... yikes: https://variety.com/2019/film/news/star-wars-the-rise-of-skywalker-flops-debut-china-1203449672/
Trailing eons behind it is the embarrassing 'Cats', which made $550,000 on Thursday, and is anticipated to make around $15M this weekend (on a $95 million budget what the fuck).
