STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER Surrenders The Weekend To 1917 As It Approaches $1 Billion

STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER Surrenders The Weekend To 1917 As It Approaches $1 Billion

As expected, Sam Mendes' Golden Globe-winning World War 1 drama managed to knock J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker off the top of its U.S. box office perch with a projected $37 million weekend.

1917 has finally taken the No. 1 spot from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker at the U.S. box office.

As expected, Sam Mendes' acclaimed WWI drama got a significant boost from its Golden Globe Best Picture win and took in $14 million on Friday for a projected $37 million opening weekend. With very little in the way of competition, the divisive final installment in the Skywlaker Saga had remained on top since its release on December 20th, but must now surrender its position.

Episode IX moves to second place with an estimated $15 million to $16 million, followed by fellow holdover Jumanji: The Next Level, Paramount's Like a Boss, legal drama Just Mercy, Little Women, and new sci-fi horror Underwater, which proved to be an apt title.

The Rise of Skywalker now sits north of $950 million worldwide, and should hit $1 billion at some point next week.
