Well, well, well. It looks like Forbes has someone aside from Scott Mendelson to offer an opinion about The Rise of Skywalker (thank the Maker)! Eric Cain, who oversees game segments on Forbes, gives the film high praise and probably offers proof that the film is more like a live-action video game than anything else. Check it out! Special thanks to my best friend jerk, Chris S. for the alert.
Bloomberg released an article earlier today that talks about a lof of the things that have been discussed in the fandom for quite a while now. One of the things the fandom has talkes about is the apparent lack of appeal of Star Wars to kids. The article cites declining toy sales and underwhelming theme park attendance as symptoms. They even call fans who are critical “dedicated fans”, this seems to be a new and different tune, especially from mainstream media outlets that usually paint fans who are critical of the sequels in a somewhat different light.

After a massive opening weekend and a sharp second weekend drop, the box office performance of The Last Jedi has generated a lot of discussion. How has the film been performing since then? The film has already grossed over one billion dollars worldwide, and Variety reported on Wednesday that it passed Rogue One at the domestic box office. It’s not all good news though. The Last Jedi is latest Star Wars film to underperform in China. According to Variety, the film lost to a Chinese romantic comedy in its debut. The Force Awakens and Rogue One also disappointed at the Chinese box office, where Star Wars doesn’t have a strong foothold. Despite the doom and gloom surrounding the aforementioned second weekend drop, The Last Jedi is performing very well overall and similarly to past Star Wars sequels. In a detailed breakdown of the film’s performance, Forbes revealed that it will likely finish around 30% behind The Force Awakens. Thats nearly identical to The Empire Strikes Back and Attack of the Clones, who finished 32% and 28% behind their predocessors respectively.
