The Last Jedi Tops US$1 Billion

Congratulations to The Last Jedi, which has just broken through the US$1 billion mark in worldwide box office sales (US$1,040,444,228 at the time of writing, but incrementing rapidly). This puts it just on the cusp of breaking into the top 20 all time highest worldwide grossing films, and it is about to surpass Rogue One in terms of international ticket grosses. Forbes.com also points out that TLJ achieved that $1bn benchmark in the fourth fastest time in movie history, and it hasn’t even opened in China yet (where it premieres this Friday). Well done to all of the cast and crew!
