Star Wars: The Last Jedi is up against some tough box office records, but it's starting with the second-highest domestic preview opening of all time, Disney confirmed Friday. 

The film opened Thursday to an estimated $45 million, ahead of 2016's Rogue One ($29 million) and a little shy of 2015's The Force Awakens ($57 million, the all-time record). It has already made $105.8 million worldwide.

The film opened at #1 in every country it was released in, except for Turkey and Korea. Based on its first two days, The Last Jedi will beat Rogue One's total box office but is pacing behind The Force Awakens. Here's a breakdown of its international opening, adding up to $60.8 million, courtesy of Disney:

UK: $10.2M
Germany: $6.1M
France: $6.0M
Australia: $5.6M
Brazil: $2.5M
Sweden: $2.4M
Italy: $2.3M
Mexico: $2.1M
Denmark: $1.7M
Russia: $1.6M
Norway: $1.5M
Other: $18.8M
