I don’t know why you assume it’s a minority? $700 million less than TFA is a lot of tickets that didn’t sell.

The Last Jedi also wasn't the first Star Wars movie in a decade. It was the third Star Wars movie in two years. It was never going to make as much money as The Force Awakens. $700 million is a big difference, but it still made over a billion fucking dollars. Money counting executives don't ever seem to be a realistic judge of their product, but expecting The Last Jedi to make as much money as The Force Awakens seems like a stupid expectation to begin with.

I agree. I also don’t know or think they necessarily expecting it to make the same amount of money. But I know a $700 million dollar slide is huge, and probably far worse than anyone expected.
