‘Rogue One’ Tops Domestic Box Office For Third Straight Weekend

Rogue One

The Force is strong with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Rogue One stayed at the number one spot for the domestic box office for a third-straight weekend. The Gareth Edwards’ film brought in an additional $64.3 million over the New Years weekend which increases its domestic total to $439.7 million and globally $789.7 million.

Disney/Pixar’s Finding Dory brought in $486.3 million during its release but Rogue One is likely to pass that. When this happens and Rogue One reaches $500 million, it will be the only film in 2016 to do so.

We’ll have to wait and see to find out how long it’s going to take until it reaches $1 billion, so keep an eye on Heroic Hollywood for more updates.

From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,’ an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, 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. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

The film stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Genevieve O’Reilly and Jimmy Smits, with James Earl Jones reprising his voice role as Darth Vader.

      Nice! Didn’t catch that one.

    Sorry but this is simply awful. A bunch of poor employees who should have been fired long ago and the “new girl” who is too nice to do it. They don’t deserve her friendship and they don’t deserve to have jobs. I’ll give it a few more episodes but I doubt whether I–or anyone else–will be watching next year at this time. Prime fodder for cancellation.
