"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" won the domestic box office for a third-straight weekend.




The third installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy brought in $33.7 million over the weekend, bringing its domestic total to $450.8 million.




However, it's still behind what "The Force Awakens" and "The Last Jedi" earned by week three.




"Skywalker" could be the first movie out of the most recent "Star Wars" trilogy to not earn $600 million domestically by the end of its theatrical run.

Disney's "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" is still doing big business at the domestic box office as it stayed in the top spot for a third consecutive weekend after taking in $33.7 million. But compared to its previous chapters in the Skywalker saga, the movie is a little sluggish by "Star Wars" standards.
The movie's domestic total is now at $450.8 million, a fantastic figure for any blockbuster after three weeks, but at this time two years ago "The Last Jedi" had brought in $531.5 million. And 2015's "The Force Awakens" raked in the domestic cume after the third weekend of an incredible $742.2 million.
At the end of the day it's not how fast you get to $1 billion, but if you get there, and "The Rise of Skywalker" will certainly do that, as the movie's worldwide total to date is $918.8 million. But the performance by "Skywalker" in the coming weeks will be interesting to track, as it might finish its theatrical run without getting to $600 million domestically. A figure that both "Force Awakens" ($936.6 million) and "Last Jedi" ($620.1 million) surpassed.
