A month after being released in theaters, episode eight of the "Star Wars" saga joins the previous installment -- "The Force Awakens" -- in the top 10 highest-grossing movies of all time at the global box office.
Now totaling $1,264,949,584 worldwide, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" has become one of the top 10 highest-grossing pictures of all time. Sunday, January 14, Episode VIII, directed by Rian Johnson, moved ahead of 2017 box-office leader "Beauty and the Beast," which grossed $1.263 billion overall. Rey, Finn and Kylo Ren's latest adventure is now edging closer to "Frozen" ($1.276 billion).
Despite these excellent results, the record-breaking performance of the previous episode, "The Force Awakens," seems out of reach. By mid-January 2016 -- a month after its release -- J.J. Abrams' episode totaled $1.863 billion and was already the third highest-grossing movie of all time, behind "Avatar" and "Titanic."
In the USA, "The Last Jedi" is the sixth highest-grossing movie of all time, with $591M, behind "Star Wars Episode VII," "Avatar," "Titanic," "Jurassic World" and "The Avengers."
