According to another report, "The Last Jedi" has already become the highest grossing film this year in Denmark and Sweden, and the fourth highest earning film in European markets in 2017.
Neither box office analysts nor Disney expected "Last Jedi" to match the gross for "The Force Awakens", which had the advantage of being the first "Star Wars" movie in a decade to be released.
If you're a box-office nerd like me, you know that the movie's box-office haul this week is actually bigger than what it pulled in during its debut weekend, and for the record, that hardly ever happens.
