Star Wars: The Last Jedi Takes a Dip at the Box Office During Christmas Weekend

The official box office numbers are in and Star Wars: The Last Jedi still remains supreme over the holiday weekend. The film was screened in over 4,200 theaters.

Grim reviews of the film written by insecure fanboys caused a disruption in the ‘force’ for the Star Wars franchise. Our country has a major inequality problem.

The changing of the guard between men and females has been a major problem for Hollywood. The recent sequel of Ghostbusters with leading cast of females also experienced this problem of gender inequality. It goes beyond gender; the problem of inequality stretches across races, social economics, geographical locations, and a long list of ways that we have been divided. It is time for that to end.

Aside from the drop in ticket sales with Star Wars, other movies as seen above average ticket sales from the holiday weekend.
