Star Wars: The Last Jedi has hit $55 million at the Japanese box office and in turn wins its fourth weekend.
Rian Johnson’s sequel to Star Wars: The Force Awakens continues to divide fans but the sci-fi adventure also continues to bring in significant amounts of cash across the global box office.
One place where the film is still performing well is in Japan, one of the biggest markets in the world. So far The Last Jedi has managed to bring in $55 million with 4.1 million admissions (via Variety).
For comparison, The Force Awakens managed a massive $97.8 million in 2015 and Rogue One collected $39 million.
To date, The Last Jedi’s international taking is $646 million combining with a domestic sum of $574 million for a total haul of $1.2 billion.
In North America the film is currently bringing in similar numbers per day as Rogue One at the same period, indicating that The Last Jedi should be on track for around $620 million. However, this will depend on how well The Last Jedi holds up week to week.
In Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.
