Friday estimates are out for Rise of Skywalker.  It made $90M on Fri, which includes Thu night previews.  This is 14% lower than The Last Jedi, which made $104.7M on its first Fri.  If this continues, it will end up with $189.2M for the weekend vs TLJ's $220M, and $533.4M total at the domestic box office vs TLJ's $620.2M.

This brings us to the foreign box office.  The ROS made an estimated $59.1M at the FBO, which is 2.8% lower than TLJ's $60.8M.  If this continues, it will end up at $223.6M for the weekend vs TLJ's $230M, and $692.5M total vs TLJ's $712.4M.  And a WW BO of $1.23B, or 7.5% lower than TLJ's $1.33B.

I'll update when weekend numbers come in.  Of course, the big test will come next weekend, which saw The Force Awakens drop a mere 40% WOW, while TLJ dropped a whopping 67%.  Will ROS drop like TFA, or TLJ, or somewhere inbetween?
