As expected, “Star Wars” fever has taken the box office by storm as Lucasfilm’s latest installment, “The Last Jedi,” has posted an opening weekend of $220 million from 4,232 screens. That’s the second highest domestic opening of all-time behind the film’s 2015 predecessor, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” and a 41 percent jump over the $155 million opening posted by last year’s “Star Wars” movie, “Rogue One.” The film opened with $104.8 million on Friday (including $45 million from Thursday previews), making it only the second film to earn $100 million on opening day. This was followed by $63.7 million on Saturday and a projected $52 million on Sunday. This total also pushes Disney past the $2 billion mark domestically for the third consecutive year and into the top spot among all studios for domestic revenue. In total, “The Last Jedi” has posted a global opening of $450 million excluding China, good for the fifth-highest global opening in box office history with $40.6 million coming from IMAX, good for the second-highest opening excluding China. The film opens in China on January 5. Hardcore “Star Wars” fans have been debating the film’s merits since screenings started on Thursday evening, but as a whole, critics and audiences have given the film a big thumbs up with an A on CinemaScore and a 93 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes. “Star Wars”‘ big weekend comes after Lucasfilm’s parent company, Disney, turned Hollywood on its head by buying the original owner of “Star Wars”, 20th Century Fox, for $52.4 billion. As fate would have it, Fox has also released a movie this weekend, the Blue Sky animated film “Ferdinand.” Helmed by “Ice Age” director Carlos Saldanha, the film has grossed $13.3 million at 3,621 locations against projections of a $15 million opening. The film received an A on CinemaScore and a 74 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Heading to the altar (again)! Though Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin quietly wed last year, the young couple are gearing up to host a more official ceremony. Bieber, 25, and Baldwin, 22, reconciled their on-and-off relationship in May 2018 before announcing their engagement two months later. They secretly tied the knot in a New York City courthouse that September. The “Sorry” singer and model celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary on September 13. “1 year of being your Mrs.,” Baldwin captioned an Instagram Stories snap of the duo. “It’s easier, because we’ve found a rhythm,” she said of their marriage. “We have more fun together, which is what should happen when you spend more time with someone you love.”
Kylie Jenner has denied rumors she's pregnant with her second child. The 21-year-old reality star, whose daughter Stormi turns one next month (Feb19), sparked speculation she could be expecting another baby with boyfriend Travis Scott when she tweeted about an "exciting project" she has in the works. "I have something really exciting i get to share soon with you guys! I’ve been cooking this up for awhile i can’t wait to share my new project alreadyyy," she wrote. One fan was quick to jump to conclusions and tweeted Kylie, "Are you pregnant again?" But the Keeping Up With the Kardashians beauty shut down the question, and replied "Noooo lol (laugh out loud)." Despite Kylie's giggling response to the question, she admitted in a Snapchat Q&A session last October (18) that she is already thinking about further expanding her family. "Am I going to have another baby?" she mused. "I want another baby but, 'When?' is the question and I'm definitely not ready right this second. I don't know when I will be, but yeah, when I do, I would love to share more of that with you guys." Kylie famously kept her entire pregnancy a secret the first time around, and only confirmed the speculation when she announced Stormi's birth and shared pictures and video footage of her when she was expecting. A source close to the reality star previously said that while Kylie and Travis are keen to have another baby, the couple is planning to wait until the end of the rapper's Astroworld Tour in March before they start trying. "Kylie and Travis are going to wait until he's finished his tour before trying for another baby," the source told Entertainment Tonight. "They want to have another child soon so it's close in age to Stormi, but they do not want to do this while he's busy on the road."
