Box-Office: ROGUE ONE Tops New Years Weekend


"Rogue One" topped the New Years weekend box-office, ending a record year for Disney. While no other wide releases opened over the weekend, most movies felt a boost during the final days of 2016.

Find out more about the weekend box office after the jump.

Disney's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" grossed another $49.5 million over the weekend and 64.3 million during the extended four-day holiday weekend. The film has now earned $439.7 million domestically and another $350 million overseas, which gives the film an all-time rank of #13 among domestic releases.

Not far behind, in holdover at #2, we have Illumination and Universal's animated feature Sing", which grossed $42.8 million over the three-day weekend and $56.4 million over the four-day weekend. The film has now grossed $180 million domestically and $97.8 million from foreign markets.

In third place is Sony's "Passengers" with $16.1 million in the three-day timeframe and $20.7 million grossed in the extended weekend. With the film costing the studio $110 million to produce, turning a profit will prove difficult, especially since the international box-office ($60 million) doesn't seem to exceed the domestic results ($66 million).

"Moana" finished in fourth place with $10.9 million for the three-day and $14.3 million for the four-day. Disney's animated film has now grossed $213.3 million domestically and $189.1 million internationally.

The Top 5 is rounded up by the R-rated comedy "Why Him?" with $10.6 million for the three-day and $13 million over the four-day. Domestically, the film has taken in $37.5 million, and an additional $14.3 million from 41 foreign markets.

2016 ended up being the most profitable year in the history of U.S. cinema, with a total of $11.3 billion from 725 films. Disney is responsible for a considerable chunk of this revenue, with 16 of their own films grossing over $3 billion .
