It’s been a roller coaster ride of a season for the film franchise, with a big release for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ a huge fall of tickets for the blockbuster movie, and a number of other big announcements to hit theaters.
Now, the film is now the third-highest grossing film of all time.
But as with any big franchise, there’s a certain degree of risk involved in any film’s release.
The Star Wars franchise is now an $11 billion global business and a $10 billion-plus global franchise, but there’s also a number that’s not as big as the $10.5 billion franchise itself, according to financial analysts at Deloitte & Sohn.
Including Star Wars: Episode VII, which is still a year away, there are around 2.5 million films released in the U.S. each year, according a Deloise &, Sohn analyst.
For those films, the average gross revenue per ticket was $2,200.
The average gross profit per ticket is $3,600.
And for Star Wars, the figures include $1,400 for merchandising, $1.2 million for licensing, $2.3 million for digital sales and $1 million for theatrical distribution.
In fact, in 2016, the biggest release in the Star Wars series was ‘The Force Awakens.’
In terms of the gross revenue from the film, the movie grossed $1 billion.
But for the franchise, that number includes only Star Wars movies and television series, which earned $826 million, Deloiser && Schwan said.
While Star Wars has become the biggest franchise in Hollywood history, there were some surprises this year.
There were no major new franchises released this year, including two Marvel films, ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and ‘Iron Man 3.’
However, there was an all-new entry, ‘Doctor Strange.’
The first time the franchise was released in 20 years, there would have been no one to capitalize on the success, according Deloisa&amp; Stern.
The next big film to come out this year is ‘Thor: Ragnarok.’
The film will be released on December 10, 2018, and stars Tom Hiddleston as the Norse god Thor and his girlfriend, Mjoll the Valkyrie.
The film grossed over $1 Billion worldwide, Delooise&> Stern said.
