After finishing the Christmas weekend on $793.3 million, Star Wars: The Last Jedi has now topped the $800 million mark at the global box office after less than two weeks on release.

"The sharp drop also puts the film in Forbes' "$100 Million Losers Club" made up of films which opened so high and then dropped so hard that they made over $100 million less on their second weekend than their first such as "Avengers: "Age of Ultron", "Batman v Superman: "Dawn of Justice", and "Jurassic World".

The Last Jedi's current domestic total (at $395.6 million) is also significant - especially when you consider an alt-right group has taken credit for the film's plummeting audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Second place went to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi has become arguably the most polarizing film in the saga's 40-year history, with many diehard fans questioning Rian Johnson's plot points and character developments (or, in their opinion, lack thereof).

Pitch Perfect 3 came in third place with $20.4 million and is now expected to finish around $27 million through its first four days of release. It's a climactic moment in the film preceded by roughly 10 seconds of silence-but, apparently, several moviegoers interpreted Johnson's creative decision as a technical glitch or premature end to the movie.

Not accounting for inflation, The Last Jedi has now outgrossed The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Attack of the Clones and A New Hope, and is fast closing in on Revenge of the Sith, which earned $849 million back in 2005.

I think Star Wars will remain at the top of the box office as we head into 2018.
