That brings its three-day global haul to $450 million.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi has earned a staggering $450m (£337m) in global ticket sales in its opening weekend, confirming the franchise's status as a box office force.

The Last Jedi is now the second all-time grossing film in North America, after banking $220m from box offices in the USA and Canada, only behind the previous installment from the same franchise, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. While it sits at Rotten Tomatoes with an outstanding score of 93% from critics, audiences did not give the movie almost as many thumbs up. The budget for Last Jedi isn't known, but Ferdinand had a reported budget of $111 million, so it has a long way to go it it's going to break even.

Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi had an interesting weekend, to say the least. "This is truly a phenomenon that will continue for years to come and with "Solo: A Star Wars Story" set for May of 2018 and "Episode IX" two years from now", said senior movie analyst Paul Dergarabedian at comScore.

The only film daring to open opposite The Last Jedi is Ferdinand, an animated family offering from Fox (NASDAQ:FOXA), and Blue Sky Studios that hopes to win over younger tots and their parents throughout the holidays. The story follows a gentle pacifist bull named Ferdinand who refuses to participate in bullfighting but is forced back into the arena where his beliefs are challenged by being faced off against the world's greatest bullfighter.
