Full houses at cinema for Star Wars movie

However, users of the IMDb website have given the film 7.6 out of 10.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi has become the second highest grossing film of 2017 after passing Wonder Woman. The Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart-starring action-adventure reboot from director Jake Kasdan, about a group of teens in detention whose avatars set out to break a curse, grossed $50.4 million over the weekend.

That was followed by "The Greatest Showman", a musical in which Hugh Jackman plays the legendary circus impresario PT Barnum.

The eighth installment of the Skywalker Saga took the top spot with $99 million domestically over the four-day holiday weekend, going on to post the fourth best Tuesday ever with another $28.1 million behind only Star Wars: The Force Awakens with $37.3 million on Dec. 22, 2015, The Amazing Spider-Man in 2012 with $35 million, and The Force Awakens once more with $29.5 million on December. 29. Critics were split, giving the picture a 51 percent favorable rating. It netted four-day receipts of $9.6 million in the United States and Canada in its second week. The animated film from the studio's Pixar unit centers on Mexico's Day of the Dead. Damon stars as an occupational therapist who joins a community of people who have shrunk themselves to save the planet and make their buying power go further.

U.S. vetoes United Nations resolution rejecting Trump's Jerusalem decision
Abbas also promised to seek full membership for Palestine at the United Nations , despite a previous push failed to do so in 2011. Francois Delattre, France's ambassador to the United Nations , said his country regretted the USA decision over Jerusalem.

This isn't surprising for a Star Wars film, and it's a huge boon for Disney, which is the only entertainment company to gross over $6 billion at the box office twice, and they pulled it off twice in a row. The film, from the director of "The Descendants" and "Sideways", garnered a 52 percent positive rating from critics. The Gary Oldman-starring "Darkest Hour" brought in $5.4 million in its fifth weekend, earning around $8.3 million in total in North America through Monday.

The movie garnered a low 24 percent positive rating at RottenTomatoes, and was expected to deliver sales of $7.3 million through the long weekend. It scored an A rating from CinemaScore, but was 57 percent "rotten" on Rotten Tomatoes.

And the third weekend of Guillermo del Toro's "The Shape of Water" earned $4.3 million, with a total of nearly $8.9 million through Monday.
