Saturday Update: Disney reports this morning that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker posted another $26.234 million on Friday, bringing its eight-day domestic haul to $316 million. That moves the trilogy-capper within 2 percent of the eight-day tally of The Last Jedi two years ago and sets Rise on course for a three-day sophomore weekend in the range of $70 – 80 million, pending those pesky holiday multipliers. If the film lands on the higher end of that range, it would surpass the 10-day tally of Last Jedi ($368.2 million) by Sunday’s end.
In second place yesterday, Jumanji: The Next Level continued to roll with another $11.7 million, giving it a 15-day tally of $151.9 million. We’re projecting a third weekend north of $33 million.
Frozen II claimed the number three position with $6 million yesterday, giving it $410.8 million to-date domestically. We expect around $16.9 million for the weekend.
Little Women continues to meet breakout expectations with another $5.745 million on Friday and an updated three-day start of $18.2 million. Based on current weekend projections, the film could earn around $16.8 million Friday through Sunday, giving it an overall $29.3 million five-day start.
Spies In Disguise continued its modest debut with $4.632 million on Friday for a three-day start of $13.5 million. Meanwhile, Uncut Gems is enjoying breakout status for A24 as it added $3.315 million yesterday, now standing at $14.84 million domestically. Early weekend estimates for both titles are in the chart below.
