Though it features appearances by neither Darth Vader nor Grand Moff Tarkin, “The Last Jedi” has taken 19 days to make the same amount of money “Rogue One” made over 140 days.

Over the holiday weekend “Last Jedi” also overtook “Beauty and the Beast” as 2017’s top-grossing domestic release. While no one expects Rian Johnson’s “Last Jedi” to replace J.J. Abrams’ “The Force Awakens” as all-time top domestic grosser, it will overtake “The Dark Knight” today and there’s a chance it could surpass “Avatar” and end up in all-time second place.
