Rogue One Passes Civil War to Become Second-Biggest U.S. Film of 2016

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” added another $65 million in North America over the four-day holiday weekend, bringing its domestic total to nearly $440 million.

That’s enough to push the Lucasfilm movie past Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” ($408.1 million) to become the second-biggest U.S. release of 2016, behind only Pixar’s “Finding Dory” ($486.3 million). The milestone comes just 16 days after “Rogue One’s” premiere.

The strong performance by the Gareth Edwards close out what’s already been a banner year for Disney, which earlier this month became the first studio to earn $7 billion in a single year.

“Rogue One” closed out its third weekend of release at No. 1 in the domestic box office, followed by Illumination and Universal’s “Sing” at No. 2 with $53.7 million (bringing its total to $178 million), Sony’s “Passengers” at No. 3 with roughly $20 million, Disney’s “Moana” at No. 4 with $13.5 million, and Paramount’s “Fences” at No. 5 with north of $12 million.

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

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker.
