Distribution sources always say that people don’t begin to go to the movies until after Christmas, however, Disney’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is the exception to that rule (and possible even Jumanji: The Next Level with a $30M+ start, maybe more). Skywalker is still looking at a $200M+ debut, though some firms are playing it safe and calling it lower at $175M when it opens on Dec. 20.

 

a $175MM open and TLJ-like 2.8x multiple, gets you to $500MMish US.

A producer for Tron Legacy (among a host of other films and shows) is giving a class at Columbia about Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The class is specifically about how to avoid writing a terrible screenplay like TLJ. It apparently explains all of its failings as a screenplay like being emotional dead and completely disjointed.
 

Found that sort of funny considering how many people swear this piece of poo is some great addition to the series.

What does this mean?

If you wanna be a good filmmaker - go to Columbia!

In all honesty though - I feel out of the last 20 years the largest missing ingredient in SW films have been Lucas' Ex-wife...

She took Star Wars from being just a special effects bonanza to something great!

Good article at the Wall Street Journal about the dysfunction that has clearly been going on at Disney regarding the Sequel Trilogy.  Supports all of us that said from the beginning that they had no clear plan.

I just want this to be released so that all of the terrible brand promotion commercials associated to the movie will finally end.

Why am I getting spammed with stories about Daisy Ridley not “acknowledging her privilege”? I’ve see like 5 different sources talking about this like it’s some sort of huge deal.

It cannot be discussed without receiving a warning for discussing politics.

What is that even supposed to mean?

This.

I just don't understand how people can defend TLJ! It was horrible!
