According to Deadline, the critically acclaimed return to the galaxy far, far away will finish Monday with a very impressive $30 million, surpassing the highest Monday earnings record previously held by Spider-Man 2 back in 2004, when it chalked up $27.7. The only other movies that have come close to this are Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull ($26.8 million) and Jurassic World ($25.3 million).
Along with its incredible weekend haul, this is a very good sign that Disney and Lucasfilm’s movie will have legs and continue to notch up the dollars. It still has a ways to go if it’s to trouble the likes of Titanic and Avatar in terms of all-time global earnings, but it definitely seems to have a lot of re-watch potential among fans at least.
