Disney's failure is now complete:

"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker earned another $2.4 million on Wednesday, dropping 40% from yesterday and a whopping 86% from last Wednesday. That gives Walt Disney and Lucasfilm’s Star Wars sequel a $460.9 million domestic cume.

The film is officially over the unadjusted $460 million (counting reissues) domestic gross of the first Star Wars beginning back in 1977 ($1.495 billion adjusted), and it’ll likely end the weekend above the unadjusted-for-inflation $474 million gross (counting the 2012 3-D reissue) of Star Wars Episode One: The Phantom Menace ($882 million adjusted).

Alas, at its rate of descent, it not only won’t get anywhere near The Last Jedi, it won't end up matching the $532 million domestic finish of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The film will have around $463 million domestic (and around $945 million worldwide) heading into this fourth weekend."

Alas nothing.  What's truly stunning is that anyone went to see this flaming pile of poo at all.  In any event, given that the budget ranged up to $500 million before ads, it's entirely possible RISE actually losses money, just as SOLO did.

Strong work Disney, strong work.  But hey, at least you had two lesbians who were unrelated to the horrifically bad story kiss, and that's what really matters in a franchise based on space wizards and lazer swords.

Woke is broke.

I know, deciding which satan-worshipping pedophile should have access to nuclear weaponry can get pretty wiry.  But worry not, this is why we have the ‘Marketplace of Ideas’; so we can work our asses off to articulately plead for the mercy of psychopaths who will ultimately get their way anyway.
