By Forbes // December 25, 2016
POTENTIALLY THIRD $400M MOVIE IN 2016
ABOVE VIDEO: Watch the official trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, in which a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story arrived in theaters December 16, 2016.
(FORBES) – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ended its first week of domestic play with a solid $16.7 million Thursday gross.
To wit, that’s a 12 percent jump from yesterday, and it brings the Walt Disney blockbuster’s week-long cume to $221.9m. That puts it above Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them ($211m) as the 10th-biggest hit of the year in North America.
It will presumably be passing Doctor Strange ($227.6m) sometime Saturday for ninth place.
However, Suicide Squad ($325m) may have to wait until maybe Monday or Tuesday.
