Star Wars: The Last Jedi Drops 95% In China

Following news of Star Wars: The Last Jedi plummeting at this past weekend’s box office in the U.S., it’s learned the movie has dropped a whopping 95% in China.

Forbes reports Star Wars: The Last Jedi “suffered a record-breaking 95 percent second weekend collapse” in China and – again similar to the U.S. – is getting clobbered by Dwayne Johnson’s Jumanji

It’s further reported that Star Wars: The Last Jedi will finish in China with about 40 percent less than last year’s Star Wars: Rogue One.

Jumanji is also the current #1 movie in China beating out the smash local hit Ex-File 3. 

In addition, Jumanji has made more money in its first two days than Star Wars: The Last Jedi did its entire opening weekend.

An earlier report also mentioned that the Chinese hate Star Wars: The Last Jedi and feel insulted by the film.

“The whole film really insults the IQ of its audience,” a review stated, which questions how the universe could possibly be ruled by such an incompetent Galactic Empire: “In Star Wars, it seems only Darth Vader had a brain — it’s such a shame he’s already dead.”

It doesn’t get much better from U.S. movie goers as more than half of the fans disliked Star Wars: The Last Jedi as well. 

“I would say Star Wars fanatics would enjoy it, but that doesn’t even appear to be true,” Rotten Tomatoes super review Sanjay Rema posted. “Episode VIII is filled with holes, bad jokes, and runs very long with very little story development. Most of the film’s subplots are inconsequential in the big picture and really only involve stalling, the all-powerful villain is mishandled, and big problems seem to have simple solutions that come off as cop-outs. The only character of interest is Kylo Ren, and in the end, even his story doesn’t go anywhere. Not a particularly fun or interesting watch.”
