Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Finally Crosses The $1 Billion Mark

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has almost certainly now joined the billion-dollar club. The finale of Disney’s Sequel Trilogy increased its global haul to $996.5 million on Monday, meaning today is the day when it’ll crack that magic golden ceiling. Grossing a billion dollars used to be an extremely notable and rare occurrence, with Titanic being the first-ever movie to do so. Nowadays, though, it’s not such a rare thing.

But while The Rise of Skywalker has indeed grossed a billion, it’s still running significantly behind its predecessors The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, perhaps indicating a tapering off of enthusiasm for Disney’s take on Star Wars. I reported earlier today that the pic’s fourth-weekend haul saw an unprecedented 92% drop-off from its opening week, which may indicate that unlike previous movies, diehard fans aren’t double-dipping.
