Sean O'Connell, Managing Director at CinemaBlend, talks "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" and how the film might perform throughout the rest of the holiday after a stunning opening weekend. We also talk some of the year's most talked-about films still scheduled to come out this holiday season.

"The Last Jedi" scores the second biggest domestic opening weekend ever, second only to its 2015 predecessor, "The Force Awakens." "The Last Jedi" is only the 4th film in history to gross over $200 million domestically in its opening weekend. Three of those four films are owned by Disney.

We talk Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks' historical drama "The Post," due out this week and Aaron Sorkin's latest "Molly's Game," which picked up Golden Globe nominations for both its writer and star. We talk the "Jumanji" remake, "Pitch Perfect 3," and "The Greatest Showman."
