Star Wars: The Last Jedi is already on track to earn the biggest box office opening of 2017, and it has only been in theaters for a few hours.
According to Disney, Rian Johnson’s new installment scored an estimated $45 million in Thursday previews, earning the second-highest domestic preview total of all time. The Last Jedi’s Thursday total puts it right behind 2015’s The Force Awakens, which still holds the record with $57 million in Thursday previews.
The Last Jedi also easily beat last year’s Rogue One, which posted $29 million for its Thursday opening.
Beauty and the Beast currently stands as the biggest domestic opening of 2017, earning $174.8 million in its opening weekend. The film’s big Thursday suggests that it’s on track to easily clear $200 million for its opening weekend domestic total.
Internationally, The Last Jedi has earned an estimated $60.8 million in territories like the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Australia, Brazil, Sweden, and more. As of Friday morning, its global total stands at $105.8 million — and climbing.
The Last Jedi is in theaters now.
