I think it may have performed slightly better because it had to be a better film than TROS, which has the unfortunate distinction of being the worst Star Wars movie. But I think it's hilarious that Trevorrow, who really is a bad director, got fired from Star Wars, and it turned out to be the best thing possible for his career. It looked like that was a career killer, but it turned out he dodged a bullet.

Attack of the Clones is the worst


TomBirkenstock

It's close, but I love the chase through Coruscant, and the big battle at the end. TROS couldn't manage one decent fight scene. Just pathetic.

George is not a great writer all around but man does that guy know his way around a set-piece


TomBirkenstock

Absolutely.

Don't forget the asteroid chase. Those Jango bombs are still one of the best sound effects I've ever heard. The Jango/Obi brawl on Kamino was pretty sweet too.

I think AOTC is the most rewatchable Star Wars movie outside the OT. The visual design, the action and the music make it hugely entertaining.

The Last Jedi is so much worse than TROS. They both sucked but I could at least see a potentially good movie in TROS Abrams just couldn’t put it together.

Slightly better depending on a few rewrites here and there Critics wouldn’t have nuked this movie from orbit

Duel was great on paper but who would’ve known execution wise

Worse. Somehow the story was more terrible than tros and I thought that was imposible.


DamienChazellesPiano

Really? I thought it had some cool stuff in it, and some redeeming storylines. It at least felt a lot more bold and interesting than TROS just bringing back Palpatine. Returning to a war torn Coruscant would’ve been cool. Rey actually having a double bladed blue lightsaber would’ve been worth it all IMO. Insane that Abrams didn’t give her a new lightsaber to start 9, with the year time jump.


nonstopdrizzle

Honestly the script was just as bad as The Rise of Skywalker, only saved by some cool concepts thats I don’t think would have been executed well.

600 million


ricdesi

Haven't read the script myself but I've heard it is like, *ridiculous* trash.


reality-check12

It was better than TROS


AdministrativeLaugh2

Not saying much


reality-check12

It would have assured that critics wouldn’t nuke the movie from orbit Allowing for 185 million to be possible


wiccan45

Same ish, I don't think any director could salvage it after last jedi, and trevorrow isn't the best in by any metric


AnotherJasonOnReddit

>$700M - $900M From what I understand, it doesn't feature Papa Sheev Palpatine.


Walsh100

I truly believe JJ’s Episode 9 is the worst movie I have ever seen. +50m through WOM


YUM_CHICKEN

Much better, his script rocked


Frosted_Flakes1971

It would’ve done worse. Trevorrow is arguably the worst big name director rn and Duel of Fates would’ve been worse than Skywalker. Don’t let the crazy fan base convince you others.
