Weekend Forecast: ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ & ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ Set to Ring In New Year Atop Strong Holiday Box Office

Friday Morning Update: As revised estimates continue to roll in over the holidays, we’ve updated our weekend forecast for Star Wars: The Last Jedi below from a $79 million weekend to a $73.5 million four-day frame (originally $79 million on Thursday morning).


No new releases are slated for this week as the heart of holiday season rolls on between the lucrative Christmas and New Year’s weekends. As audiences head out to cinemas for the final weekend of 2017, here’s an early look at what to expect from the top ten films.

    I think TLJ will probably get to something closer to $85M over the four day weekend, grossing $550M on January 1st.
