Historically speaking, the 3rd film in a Star Wars trilogy makes more money than the 2nd film, so in theory it should make more money than The Last Jedi. However, The Last Jedi was hated by a large portion of the fanbase, who subsequently boycotted Solo and caused it to be the first ever Star Wars movie to flop, and they could very well decide to skip The Rise of Skywalker as well. However, I think that Disney's decision to bring back Palpatine and the Dark Side Rey tease (which is likely a fake-out just to get people to see the movie), as well as the fact that The Mandalorian has restored alot of lost fans' faith in LucasFilm, will be enough for The Rise of Skywalker to beat The Last Jedi at the box office. By how much is anyone's guess, I don't think it'll win by much, it will be close.

I predict a huge opening then it will fall like a rock. Wouldn't be shocked if it didn't reach a billion

Expecting it to do well but the everyday man will blast it. I don't really blame them...

I expect "nerds" will be the ones with issues, "everyday man" doesn't give that much of a shit about the movies they watch. "Everyday Man" thinks Transformers movies are pretty good and Star Wars films with maybe the exception of Attack of the Clones are comfortably above that threshold. 

Just saying, I would much rather rewatch any of the Transformers movies again than I would rewatch The Last Jedi. Attack of the Clones is well over that threshold for me, I actually like the prequels quite alot. The Last Jedi is the only Star Wars movie that I have legitimately disliked, so much so that it is the only Star Wars movie that I haven't watched at least twice.

The prequels are the lowest grossing main line Star Wars films, so you're in the minority there.

I predict that I will like it. I think it will be an enjoyable movie, possibly even my top movie of the year, just like how TFA and TLJ were.

Box office predictions? $700-750M domestic lifetime, $1.4-1.5B worldwide.



$1.4b

But people that go see Transformers expect it mostly to be just a lot of show with bad plot and they just want to enjoy the rollercoaster,that is a different audience.

Now naturally you got those kind of people that go see Star Wars too but that franchise always enveloped more than just the looks so ofcourse it will get critique on a grander scale and more nitpicking.

Why do those "nerds" suddenly like the Mandalorian on Disney + you think?



I expect it will just take more than a billion at the box office. I'm also expecting it to be a poor film. Apart from Rogue One, all the Disney films have not been very good at all. Which is a shame.



The Last Jedi backlash is going to hit this film hard, which is a shame as I do think it'll be more interesting than the last. The more capable Abrams is back at the helm and if nothing else, it'll just be interesting to see how things wrap up. I've heard Red Letter Media toss out their strange theory they seem pretty adamant about of a possible "time travel" plot which would be VERY interesting indeed XD. 

Honestly I'm more interested in (somehow) getting to see the Mandalorian vs this film. 

I'm still expecting it to put up some massive numbers overall of course. After all, it IS Star Wars and the name alone will bring in huge numbers. But it'll be a significant dip down.
