There was a war at the box office this weekend. In the end, The World War I drama “1917” knocked “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” from the top spot at the box office to claim the #1 spot.

After four weeks of release, “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” made $15 million domestically this weekend and an additional $24.2 million internationally. So far, “The Rise Of Skywalker” has made $478 million domestically and $511 million internationally, bringing its worldwide total to $989 million. “The Rise Of Skywalker” should cross the billion dollar mark sometime this week.

Disney/Fox’s “Underwater” made its debut this weekend and finished in a disappointing 7th place. The film made $7 million domestically this weekend with an additional $7.1 million overseas, bringing its worldwide total to a dismal $14.1 million.

After dominating the box office for 8 weeks, “Frozen 2” fell to 8th place. The film brought in $5.7 million domestically this weekend and has made an astounding $1.371 billion worldwide.

Disney/Fox’s “Spies In Disguise” dropped to tenth place this weekend and brought in $5 million. So far, the film has made $115 million worldwide.

And finally, we haven’t heard any box office news regarding “Avengers: Endgame” for quite some time, but it appears that Disney received some good news recently. China announced that “Endgame” accounted for an additional $3 million from uncalculated receipts to its final box office total. Previously, the worldwide box office total for “Endgame” was $2.798 billion. With the additional $3 million, “Endgame” has made it to over $2.8 billion.
