Star Wars' Jedi warriors normally emerge victorious in their battles - be they against the evil First Order or box office rivals.

But the Force was not with 'Star Wars; The Last Jedi' in the battle to be the UK's most popular film of 2017.

The foe to defeat the all-action space sequel in the year-end box office rankings was Emma Watson, with her hit 'Beauty and the Beast'.

'Beauty and the Beast' earned £4.1m more than 'The Last Jedi' in 2017.

'Beauty and the Beast' was also the most popular film around the world, taking $1.26bn (£929m) at global box offices.

However, while 'Beauty and the Beast' was released in March and has now disappeared from cinemas, 'The Last Jedi' is still playing on
hundreds of screens, so its total will continue to grow in the coming weeks.
