“The Last Jedi” to make a big finish for 2017


"Star Wars" fans stood in long lines last night for the "The Last Jedi".

"The Last Jedi" could make anywhere from $190 million to $215 million, and falling anywhere in that range would give it one of the biggest openings of all time.

“The Force Awakens" It would go on to make more than $2 billion worldwide. Last year, the "Star Wars" spinoff, "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," raked in more than $1 billion globally.

Cinemark's Bryan Jeffries said it appears unlikely that "The Last Jedi" will reach the same heights as "The Force Awakens”.

“The feeling is, ‘The Last Jedi’, while maybe not reach 250, and make it into the 220s, 230s, and that’s still far and away above anything else prior to ‘The Force Awakens’,” said Jeffries.

Of course, Chewie is still there, and new to the scene are Porgs.

Star Wars fans are aware the most well-known plot point...is that Princess Lea will no longer be around (since Carrie Fisher's death).

Jeffries said in "The Last Jedi"it's being handed off to the characters Kylo Ren and Rey.

“I think at this point this is when the old Star Wars is going away and the new Star Wars is coming into its own and that’s exciting for a lot of people,” said Jeffries.

For the next three days, you can catch "The Last Jedi" playing 24/7 at Cinemark theaters throughout Houston.
