SHEEPSHEAD BAY -

Moviegoers in Brooklyn hit the theaters Friday to catch the latest installment in the Star Wars series.

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" has already racked up more than $45 million in ticket sales with its preview release Thursday. The movie is expected to bring in another $200 million Friday just in North America.

Fans who have waited two years for the installment are excited to catch this latest movie.

Renzo Silva and his son, Antonio, caught the movie at the IMAX theater. Both say it was a great experience and the movie was well worth the wait.

"My dad did it for me when I was his age," says Silva. "I'll do it for him and hopefully he'll do it for his kids when the saga continues."
