‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ Dominates At Box Office

Lucasfilm’s “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” is estimated to earn $195 million domestically on it’s opening weekend, which would place it just above the $191 million openings of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and the “Lion King” remake for the eighth highest domestic opening of all-time.

However, reviews have been somewhat mixed compared to past “Star Wars” installments. The critics’ Rotten Tomatoes score, which topped 90% for predecessors “The Force Awakens” and “The Last Jedi,” is only at 57% with “Rise of Skywalker.” CinemaScore polls have given the film a B+, compared to A for “Last Jedi” and A- for “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”
