  • Star Wars The Last Jedi Trailer Luke Skywalker

At this pace, it will pass the $504 million made by "Beauty and the Beast" to become 2017's highest grossing domestic release by New Year's Eve on Sunday, with industry estimates expecting a third weekend total of $54 million from 4,232 screens to give it a $537 million total by year's end. The Last Jedi opened to a combined $450 million worldwide.

Disney and Lucasfilm's The Last Jedi is crossing the $1 billion mark at the global box office as Hollywood bids adieu to 2017.

Terrorists Attack Coptic Church in Cairo, at Least Eight Killed
The Times notes another incident was reported on Friday involving a gun attack in Helwan at an appliance shop owned by a Copt. According to the BBC , Egyptian police patrolling near the church approached two men who were behaving suspiciously.

Fans have also defended Tran even citing notions such as white fragility, and others have called out fans on being unfair since they apparently only hate Rose and are taking it out on Tran.

Kelly Marie Tran, who plays Rose Tico in the said sequel for "Star Wars", is now experiencing the toxic side of the online community for the franchise. This means that one of the core messages of "Star Wars" is to set aside racial diversity for a noble goal. The next standalone Star Wars movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story, opens in theaters on May 25, 2018. The film was something of a gamble, being the first Star Wars film not connected to the events of the main series, but that seems like a foolish concern in hindsight.

Crystal Palace vs Arsenal
On paper, this fixture has an Arsenal victory written all over it, given the attacking talents at Wenger's disposal as well as Palace's struggles to keep clean sheets at Selhurst Park.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi has officially joined the $1 billion club.

Photo "Despicable Me 3" was the only animated film to rank among the year's 10 biggest ticket sellers. As of this writing, the sequel sits at over $914 million. Through Monday, it's expected to reach a domestic total of $186.3 million - and if those numbers hold, it could surpass The Last Jedi to win the four-day New Year's weekend.

More Than 40 Dead And Dozens Injured After Bombing In Kabul
A journalist at Afghan Voice, Sayed Abbas Hussaini, said there appeared to have been more than one explosion during the attack. AFP reporters near the scene of the blast heard a third explosion, suggesting the attack may still be under way.

Surprisingly, Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has proven to have legs at the box office, just narrowly being beaten out by Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If you'd like to contribute, you can always see Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is in theaters right now.
