According to the report from Comicbook.com, "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" managed to out "Captain America: Civil War" from being second highest grossing film the past year in just 16 days since it premiered on December 16, 2016.
Three whole Star Wars prequels tried to do that with very limited success, so Rogue One's mere shots of a masked and unmasked Vader may be the most effective with him in 33 years.
With its third straight win at the box office, "Rogue" has proven again its status as the holiday season's biggest victor.
The film added $16.6 million on Thursday, bringing its domestic box office total to $375 million.
The studio have just enjoyed their biggest ever box office haul in 2016 with over $7 billion (£5.7 billion). At the moment, no real numbers were given on how much money Star Wars: Rogue One has made just before the year ended, but it is known the money is over the amount needed to beat Captain America: Civil War.
"Rogue", originally released on December 16, grossed more than $64 million domestically this weekend, which was a four-day stretch because of the New Year's holiday. The movie has quietly been the go-to title for kids who are a little too young for the mature material in "Rogue One". According to Screen Rant, that change may have been due to Disney's successful gamble on December premieres for The Force Awakens and Rogue One.
Coming in second place is the latest animated movie by the creators of "Despicable Me", "Sing", which took in and estimated $41 million ($54 million for four-day).
"Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an all-new epic adventure".
Leading this band is none other than the daughter (Felicity Jones) of the Death Star's head architect Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen), a defector who is forced back into service of the Empire to complete the world-obliterating weapon. The holidays give people a lot of time to pay for repeat viewings of the new film.
