Star Wars: The Last Jedi Destroys Box Office with $220 Million Debut

The latest installment of the Star Wars saga, The Last Jedi, easily debuted in the top spot this weekend with $220 million. It is the second highest opening for a movie, behind, guess... Star Wars: The Force Awakens' $248 million from a couple years ago.  Overseas, it grossed $230 million for a $450 million worldwide launch.

The Fox (or what soon may be Disney) animated flick, Ferdinand, came in a distant second with $13.3 million. Which, actually, isn't a good number since it's reported budget is $111 million. Perhaps, it will play well throughout the holidays.
