Remember when SJWs were arguing that the box office dip from The Force Awakens to The Last Jedi was not concerning because the box office for a third movie always goes up again? Well, guess what buttercup? The Direct Beta says otherwise:
The Rise of Skywalker Ranks As The Lowest Profiting Movie Of Star Wars’ Sequel Trilogy
As the final numbers were tallied in Deadline’s Most Valuable Blockbuster Tournament of 2019, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker closed the saga as the ninth-most profitable film of 2019, accruing $300 million in net profits by the end of its theatrical run (taking into account total global revenues). When compared to its predecessors, The Rise of Skywalker’s net profits are the lowest of the sequel trilogy, behind The Force Awakens ($780.1 million in profits) and The Last Jedi ($417.5 million in profits).
