The estimated $200-million-plus opening weekend number would make Star Wars: The Last Jedi's part of an elite $200 million club that only boasts three other members: Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($248 million), Jurassic World ($208.8 million), and The Avengers ($207.4 million). The film stars Mark Hamill, the late Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro.

Directed by Rian Johnson, the movie picks up where 2015's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" left off. Last December's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" took in an impressive $155 million, but as a standalone, it was never expected to match the episodic saga numbers.
