Mark Hamill apologizes for doubting director Rian Johnson's version of Luke Skywalker

Not a fan It seems Mark Hamill is not completely satisfied with how Luke Skywalker was developed for the latest Star Wars installment The Last Jedi he revealed in a press junket clip

Star Wars: The Last Jedi has now passed Wonder Woman ($412.6 million) domestically to become the #2 domestic release of 2017 to date, behind only Beauty and the Beast ($504 million).

The Last Jedi dominated the global box office in its opening weekend in 54 markets where it made $230.8m besides its North American haul of $220m.

In second place was the Dwayne Johnson family adventure "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" which made $55.4 million for Sony over the same four-day period.


For the three-day weekend, Jedi earned an estimated $68.4 million, a 69 percent decline, prompting some to question whether the film is losing momentum.

Animated feature "Ferdinand", the story of a pacifist bull forced to face down the greatest bullfighter in the world, was fifth.

And previous year, stand-alone film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story fell 59 percent in its second outing, earning $64 million over the December 23-25 weekend. It's important to note that The Force Awakens had a 5-day opening weekend to reach its R16 443 117, versus the nearly R10m that The Last Jedi did in its 3-day opening, making The Last Jedi 's opening haul incredibly impressive. All I wanted was to make (a) good movie. On its first weekend, 67 percent of ticket buyers were male, while only 35 percent were under the age of 25; on its second weekend, the male percentage lowered to 58 percent, while almost 50 percent of tickets buyers were under the age of 25, according to comScore's PosTrak service. The film was made for about $90 million.

Sure this is down from the $2 billion that The Force Awakens received, but it's still a good number considering all the feedback that the movie is getting from certain fans.
