BOX OFFICE: ‘Rise of Skywalker’ could have a huge second weekend. Maybe not.

“Little Women” and “Spies in Disguise” are all set to give that”last” “Star Wars” film a run for its ticket sales money this weekend.


Those Christmas Day openers have done OK business since midweek.

But “The Rise of Skywalker” is set to own the box office well into the new year.

Box Office Mojo figures it’ll manage another $95 million or so this weekend. But is noting the depressed opening weekend take on this wanly reviewed finale and saying $70 million is more like it.

“Little Women” had a robust Wed. take of $6.4 million, another $17 is expected this weekend.

“Spies in Disguise” did a piddling $4-5 million on Xmas. It might manage $11-12 more this weekend.

“Jumanji” is still printing cash — another $35-38 projected.

“Cats” is still vomiting through Universal’s bottom line, maybe another $6 million weekend, which won’t help.

“Uncut Gems” is still in the top ten, as are “Bombshell” and “Richard Jewell.”
