The last of "Star Wars" exceeded expectations. Because if its filmmakers expected to surpass 200 million dollars at the box office during its first weekend in North America, we must say that this figure is higher.
It is that "Star Wars: the last Jedi" raised about 220 million dollars in the United States and Canada in its premiere weekend, according to Exhibitor Relations.
Of the premieres of the films of this saga, it is only surpassed in a debut weekend by "Star Wars: the awakening of the force", that arrived at the local rooms in December of 2015.
It should be noted that in the North American box office this weekend, second and well away from "Star Wars: the last Jedi", was the computer animated comedy "Ferdinand", which reached 13 million dollars.
