"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" is dominating the box office, raking in an estimated $32 million on Christmas Day from 4,232 North American sites, Variety noted.

IGN reported that the film finished the three-day weekend at $745.4 million worldwide, while domestically bringing in just under $400 million 11 days after its release.

While "Stars Wars: The Last Jedi" has performed well at the box office there has been a notable drop of 68.9 percent from its $220 million debut.

Forbes said the film lost more money between its first and second weekends than any film ever, earning $151 million less between its two weekends.

There has been a steady decline in audience ratings for "Stars Wars: The Last Jedi" on Rotten Tomatoes, which was at 52 percent as of Tuesday, yet film critics remain divisive.

According to The Boston Globe, the movie scored three out of four stars from The Washington Post’s Ann Hornaday while on Rotten Tomatoes’ count, more than nine in 10 critics approved of the film.

Despite the fluctuations, the movie is still expected to top $1 billion worldwide and $600+ million during its theatrical run, making it the No.1 domestic release of 2017, IGN said.

Meanwhile, "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" was the weekend’s biggest new release, earning an estimated $52 million from Friday through to Sunday, Variety reported, and raking in a total of $50.6 million since its Wednesday opening.

Universal’s "Pitch Perfect 3" was another top earner, taking in about $26 million at 3,447 theaters over the Christmas weekend and opening with $9.8 million on the international front.
