But the truly remarkable stat of this bunch is what hasn’t hit movie theaters yet: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which looms like the Death Star itself over the holiday season. The film is already expected to make upwards of $130 million in its opening weekend, which could easily mean that it’ll be yet another billion-dollar-crossing picture for Walt Disney Studios. Not too shabby.

The question through all of this, however, remains what legacy the past few years’ bursting box office will mean for the studios, specifically, and Hollywood, generally. There has already been much controversy over the profitability – or the lack thereof – of films like Warner Bros.’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and one has to wonder whether similarly-faring releases (which is the vast bulk of movies, it should be noted) will be regarded moving forward. We won’t have too long to find out – although Disney has such heavy-hitters as Beauty and the Beast and The Avengers: Infinity War lining up over the next two years, Universal will be countering with Fast 8 and Jurassic World 2 in the same time period. Where everyone else fits in – or not – should become immediately clear.
