Some sad, scared little men edited almost all the women out of The Last Jedi. Their version is 46 minutes long, less than half the actual running length, cutting out most of Holdo, nearly all of Rose’s lines, and of course Luke milking the thala-siren. (No boobs allowed!) But the best part? The reaction of the actual men involved in the movie.
In the fifth weekend, The Last Jedi has passed Beauty and the Beast at the global box office to become 2017’s highest earning movie and the 10th highest of all time. More figures via Scott Mendelson at Forbes:
The sci-fi sequel earned another $11.25m (-51%) in its fifth weekend to set the stage for a 32-day total of around $595m by tomorrow. If it can get to $600m domestic before Friday, it’ll still be the second-fastest grossing movie between Jurassic World and The Force Awakens.
He speculates that the movie will end up making about $1.3B worldwide.
The Last Jedi Blu-ray will have over two hours of extra footage, per the Star Wars Movies page on Facebook. Best Buy will have two exclusive Steelbook versions (regular and 4K Ultra,) while Target’s will come with a 40-page booklet.
“The world of Star Wars is not our world,” Michael Kaplan, costume designer for “The Last Jedi,” wrote in an email. “Kylo Ren is not some hipster in hip-hugging jeans. Think Errol Flynn swashbuckling coolness as a point of departure. Hide that navel!”
We get something of the history of high-waisted pants, and a Bruce Lee shoutout as well. I guess Kylo finally gets one up on grandpa Anakin in at least one area: His waistband.
The Digital Bits is reporting that The Last Jedi will likely be out on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD on March 27. This is still tentative, and both The Force Awakens and Rogue One had layered releases, so keep that in mind before planning time off for GIFmaking and the like.
Going by the previous releases, we could get official word on the release date in February.
