Star Wars: The Last Jedi is officially the UK and Ireland’s biggest movie of 2017

Star Wars: The Last Jedi has become the biggest film of 2017 after taking £73.1M in just three weeks spending 22 consecutive days at #1. The result, which was announced today by official box office measurement company comScore, who calculate the full 52 week box office takings which closed on January 4th, means Disney is, for the second year in a row, the biggest UK and Ireland distributor of the year with £265.1M in box office takings with just six films. Disney had three out of the top five performing films of the year at the UK and Ireland box office with Beauty and the Beast taking £72.4M – the second biggest film of the year, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 taking £41M.

I was disappointed with the film (you can read all my thoughts on it here)

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is currently the 7th biggest film ever released in the UK and Ireland meaning Disney now holds four out of the top ten titles of all time in the UK and Ireland with Star Wars: The Force Awakens (which is still the biggest film ever to be released in the UK), Toy Story 3, Beauty and the Beast and Star Wars: The Last Jedi all featuring in the top ten.
