Star Wars Rise of Skywalker box office – why it has disappointed – digitalspy.com, Digitalspy.com
After a mixed response from critics and fans,Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalkeris having a mixed time at the box office too.
As of January 1, the climactic chapter in the Skywalker Saga has grossed $ 866. 4 million worldwide and will cross $ 1 billion. It’s a performance that most blockbusters would kill for, so you could hardly call it a flop.
However, when you consider that it will likely fall short ofThe Last Jedi $ 1. billion and end some way behindThe Force Awakens
$ 2. 013 billion, it is a disappointment and a bit of a surprise. So was it just the critical response that led to the softer box-office returns? Not quite.
The reviews would have had some impact on the box office, but it would have been minimal given that it was the final movie in a trilogy and part of a long-running and well -established franchise.
Fans would have gone to see [4K]
The Rise of Skywalker  without paying too much mind to the reviews. Yes, there would have been a few who would have seen the reviews and decided to wait for the home release, but their absence wouldn’t have been fatal to its box-office chances.
Whatwouldhave affected the potential audience is their attitudes toThe Last Jediand the sequel trilogy as a whole.********************There is a section of theStar Warsfandom that just doesn’t like the sequel trilogy. Even though they showed up forThe Force Awakens, they gave (The Last Jedi) ************** andThe Rise of Skywalker a miss.
