WEDS UPDATE: "Last Jedi" Tuesday was $20.3 million vs. $37 mil for "Force Awakens" on its first Tuesday. That's around 42% off. $17 million is a big difference. Monday and Tuesday are big days for adults going to the movies, so this development is a little surprising. Almost every other film increased from Monday to Tuesday by quite a lot. Only "Last Jedi" declined, by 6%. Again, Monday and Tuesday are days when adults come out and sample "smart" movies. For some reason, their interest in "Star Wars" less than was imagined.
TUESDAY: Monday's box office numbers turned up a new glitch in the numbers for "The Last Jedi."
Even the Disney experts must have been surprised. "Jedi" took home $21.5 million on Monday, an important night for adult filmgoers.
