“Rogue One” will open Dec. 28 in South Korea and Jan. 6 in China, the world’s second-largest film market.

The film’s $155 million domestic opening is the second-biggest December premiere in U.S. box office history, behind 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” with $248 million. Its $135.5 million international opening weekend rates as the fourth-largest December debut at the foreign box office, behind “The Force Awakens” ($281 million), “Avatar” ($164.5 million) and “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey ($138 million).

Set just prior to the events of 1977’s “Star Wars,” the film follows a ragtag group of Rebel fighters who undertake a dangerous mission to steal the design plans for the Galactic Empire’s new planet-destroying superweapon, the Death Star.

Directed by Gareth Edwards, the film stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker.
