Interesting BO info:

1. Fourth week of release, still not topped 1 billion worldwide, but it will within the next day or so.

2. Domestic BO may finish around that of Rogue One, possibly even lower.

3. Final WW BO will finish below $1.2B
TROS has made $478 million in 23 days.
Rogue One made $532 million in 149 days.

How is it going to finish lower than Rogue One?

Uh, why does Anakin have a red lightsaber in the Revenge of the Sith poster?

How you know you're raising your kids right:

One of my twin daughters has the flu and is home from school today. I was sitting with her on the couch when she says, "Daddy, you kind of have big ears. You look like Nien Nunb."

And Luke looks like Ach-To Luke in TLJ instead of his force projection version.

I LOVE Taika, but I hope he says no. He's already doing Thor 4, and working on The Mandalorian. I want him to be able to keep making his own stuff too and not be wrapped up in all the franchises.

He can do it all. Have you seen his output lately? He followed Ragnarok with Jojo Rabbit (which he wrote/directed), directed the season one finale of The Mandalorian, shot a role in Free Guy, is currently directing Next Goal Wins (which he also wrote), and is then following that with Thor: Love and Thunder. I guarantee you he fits another writer/director passion project in before Star Wars, as he seems more skilled than just about anyone at jumping back and forth between franchise and passion projects, and doing so quickly. The dude is everywhere.

I dont think you understand how the box office works. It's earning around $1 mil/day now and will drop under $1mil/day after this week. Most are projecting it to finish around $505 million-$510 mil. It wont even get close to Rogue One domestically.

Unfortunately true. Somehow it's not even going to reach Rogue One. Pretty disappointing run for the big finale to the saga.

Disney killed their golden goose when they killed off the original trilogy characters. I understand Han because Harrison Ford himself wanted to kill the character off.

But Luke? Come on. They did not understand the franchise they own. They lost fans forever due to mismanaging Luke's character. And for what? A quick buck? Social Justice?

They could have ended he Skywalker with Luke and Anakin ending Palpatine again while developing the other new characters to launch a new trilogy. They screwed up because there are many that will never come back.

$1/million per day is only for days of the week. The movie made $15.187 million Fr-Su last week. And there's MLK next Monday, which will give it another little nudge.

Assuming it's out for 4-5 months as the rest of them have been, your logic says it's only going to average between $188,000 and $228,000 per day over the next 122 days to finish at $505 or $510 million.

I don't know how the box office works, but I can do math.

I still have hope. If they can bring Taika & Feige on board AND have a good team to go alongside, the next trilogy can be great.

What if Luke had been the one to give his life to heal Rey instead of Kylo. That would have been cool.

Meant to post all this here last night as well.
Almost a month after it came out, Star Wars finally releases a picture of Palps.



According to Digital Spy, the Visual Dictionary for the movie tells sort of how Palps came back to life.

According to the tie-in book, Darth Sidious was brought to Exegol by his hooded cohorts called the Sith Eternals (via Digital Spy). These mysterious beings weren't mentioned in the movie, although they were explicitly featured during the climactic battle between Rey and her grandfather. Apparently, they are devoted Sith followers who were Palapatine loyalists. After Darth Sidious' defeat in Return of the Jedi, they brought him to Exegol, and using "technology and occult," they were able to revive him.

I haven't picked up Kylo Ren #1 or #2, but probably will tomorrow - #2 went on sale last week and has some kick ass preview images along with the cover: And yes, it's a younger Lor Sarn Tekka with Luke and Ben!













They could put out a comic a week featuring Luke's adventures post-ROTJ and pre-TFA and I would never grow tired of them.

Looks like there is zero interest. I look forward to finding out it is a colossal failure on youtube.
