'1917' Defeats 'Star Wars' With $36.5m weekend Box Office

Sam Mendes’ “1917” marched to box office victory, earning a solid $36.5 million from 3,434 theatres in its first weekend of wide release.

Universal and DreamWorks’ World War I drama also defeated Disney’s “Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker,” the final chapter in the sequel trilogy that has ruled box office charts since debuting in late December.

The tentpole slid to second place, generating another $15 million for a domestic haul of $478 million.

“1917” is undoubtedly capitalising on awards season attention, a promising sign on the eve of Oscar nominations. In a surprise Golden Globes victory last Sunday, the film beat odds-on favourites “The Irishman” and “Marriage Story” to take home the statue for best motion picture - drama.
