  • Star Wars: Rogue One - Domestic Box Office Now At $532 Million

    Anyone going to watch this? I am undecided if I want to pay to see it in theatre. For sure, I will rent it when it comes out on DVD next summer.

    'Star Wars: Rogue One' Debuts With Over $290 Million Worldwide, 'Collateral Beauty' Struggles - Box Office Mojo

    Disney and Lucasfilm's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story top-lined the fourth largest December three-day weekend ever, delivering the third largest opening of 2016, the twelfth largest opening of all-time and became only the second December opener to debut over $100 million behind last year's monster opening for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Fellow new wide release, New Line's Collateral Beauty, didn't fare quite so well, delivering the worst wide opening for a Will Smith-led feature ever, though La La Land continued to impress following last weekend's strong limited debut as it expanded into 200 theaters this weekend.

    Debuting with an estimated $155 million domestically from 4,157 theaters, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is off to a strong start as it is already the 15th highest grossing release of 2016 after just three days. It will, however, soon find itself competing for audience attention over the upcoming holiday season, which features no fewer than five new wide releases as well as the continued expansion of films contending for Oscar attention. As a result, Rogue One's performance will be interesting to track as it is something of an unprecedented release given it's only the second movie to have ever opened over $100 million in December and yet it won't likely have the sheer staying power of its predecessor, The Force Awakens.

    All that said, this is still a Star Wars film and audience reaction has been strong. The film received an "A" CinemaScore across all demographics as it played to crowds that were 66% male versus 34% female of which 39% were under the age of 25. It also holds an 84% rating on RottenTomatoes and after its initial user rating on IMDb fell from 8.7 to 7.7 leading up to its release date, it saw a strong uptick as it currently holds an 8.3 rating as opening day audiences show their approval.

    Of Rogue One's opening weekend total, only 38% came from 3D showings despite the fact 84% of its 4,157 opening weekend theaters were capable of exhibiting the film in 3-D. Unfortunately, there is no way of telling just how many showings were in 3-D vs. 2-D, which puts that 38% number into some perspective as the theaters capable of showing the film in 3-D most likely also had screens exhibiting the film in 2-D. A further breakdown of the numbers show the film brought in $19 million from over 400 IMAX screens and $17.9 million from 550 premium large format screenings.

    Internationally the film made a splash with an estimated $135.5 million from 54 markets, delivering a $290.5 million worldwide release, finishing just outside the top twenty and currently positioned behind The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 at $291 million, though that could easily change once actuals are reported.

    Of the film's international opening, it brought in an estimated $21 million in the UK, $12.5 million in Germany, $10.8 million in Australia, $10 million in France, $7.9 million in Russia, $5.3 million in Brazil, $5.1 million in Mexico, $4.5 million in Spain, $3.5 million in Sweden and $3.1 million in Italy. Next weekend sees no new openings for the film, which began its run in ~71% of the international marketplace and still has openings in South Korea (Dec. 28) and China (Jan. 6) to look forward to.

        Box office report: ‘Rogue One’ reigns again

        Rogue One: A Star Wars Story kept fanning the flames of Disney’s record-setting year at the box office, storming past a crowded slate of new holiday releases to claim the top spot on the domestic chart for the second week in a row.

        The Gareth Edwards-directed space opera — which takes place shortly before the events of Star Wars – Episode IV: A New Hope — fell just under 59 percent across its sophomore frame, finishing the three-day weekend with an estimated $64.4 million. The film’s four-day gross is estimated to tally $96.1 million for a $555 million worldwide haul in just 10 days.

        Unadjusted for inflation, Rogue One‘s $318.1 million North American total is now the fourth-largest in Lucasfilm’s history and the ninth-highest of 2016. By the end of its run, Rogue One will likely dethrone fellow Disney release Finding Dory ($486.3 million) as the year’s top-grossing picture.

          'Rogue One' Tops New Years Weekend, Capping Off Disney's Monster 2016 - Box Office Mojo

          With the coming of the new year we can now say 2016 was officially the largest year at the domestic box office of all-time as 725 films delivered over $11.3 billion, led by Finding Dory, one of several films that contributed to Disney's record year wherein the studio saw 16 films deliver over $3 billion in domestic revenue. As such, it's only fitting a Disney title ended the year as the #1 film at the weekend box office with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story taking the weekend crown for a third weekend in a row as its domestic total climbs to nearly $440 million after 18 days in release. We will have a complete look at both December as well as all of 2016 over the coming weeks, but for now let's take a quick look at this weekend's performances.

          Rogue One brought in an estimated $49.5 million over the three-day weekend and $64.3 million over the four-day holiday weekend as its domestic cume now stands at an estimated $439.7 million. Additionally, the Star Wars spin-off brought in another $45.8 million internationally for a $350 million international cume for a nearly $790 million global gross. As of right now, Rogue One ranks as the thirteenth largest domestic release of all-time.

            2017 Kicks Off with Tight Race for #1 Between 'Rogue One' and 'Hidden Figures' - Box Office Mojo

            Domestic weekend estimates are in, but the full story won't be told until actuals arrive Monday afternoon as the top two films are within a mere fraction of one another as severe winter weather had a clear effect on this weekend's grosses. For the time being Rogue One: A Star Wars Story holds the top spot over Fox's expanded release of Hidden Figures by less than $200,000.

            Currently holding the #1 spot for the weekend is Disney's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which dropped 55.7% and finished with an estimated $21.97 million as its domestic cume climbs to $477.2 million, placing it just $9 million behind Finding Dory as it is soon to become the highest grossing release of 2016.

            In addition to its domestic gross, Rogue One added another $56.6 million internationally this weekend from 57 markets bringing its overseas total to $437.1 million for a global cume of $914.4 million. This places Rogue One ahead of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and The Secret Life of Pets making it the fifth largest worldwide release of 2016, giving Walt Disney Studios the top five global releases for 2016.

            Of that international haul this weekend, Rogue One opened in its last international territory this weekend, China, where it brought in an estimated $31 million for the three-day, only 61% of Star Wars: The Force Awakens' two-day opening weekend. Nevertheless it was the #1 film in China this weekend, pulling in an estimated 56% market share.

            As for Rogue One's #1 finish, we'll have to wait until actuals come in to see if it holds up as Rogue One's lead over current second place finisher, Hidden Figures, is a mere $172,000 and rival studios currently place Hidden Figures at #1.

This brings the film's international gross to $499.1 million for a worldwide gross over $1 billion, making Rogue One the 28th film to have ever grossed over $1 billion worldwide and Disney's fourth 2016 release to cross the milestone.
