Rogue One crosses the $900 million mark
Disney and Lucasfilm’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and 20th Century Fox’s Hidden Figures are in a race for the top spot at the domestic box office that is still too close to call. According to Disney, Rogue One earned $22 million this weekend, while 20th Century Fox is saying Hidden Figures earned $21.8 million. Some rival studios have those numbers reversed, however, so we’ll have to wait until official figures come out on Monday to see which one is the clear winner.
With the $22 million weekend, The Walt Disney Studios‘ Rogue One has now earned $477.3 million in North America, making it the #2 release of 2016 behind only Finding Dory ($486 million). Internationally, the Star Wars film added another $56.6 million ($31 million of that coming from China, where it just opened) and has now reached $437.1 million. That means the worldwide total now stands at $914.4 million. Rogue One has passed both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($873 million) and The Secret Life of Pets ($876 million) to become the fifth-highest grossing release of 2016 globally.
