“Rogue One” Wins New Year’s Weekend Box Office
Rogue One not only won the New Year’s weekend box office, but it also became the second highest-grossing film of 2016. Get the details, and check out the Top 10 below!
As Gossip Cop reported, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opened in theaters two weeks ago, and has dominated its film competition ever since. Now, after conquering the Christmas weekend box office, the movie won the New Year’s battle, too, with $50 million. But more impressive is that it overtook Captain America: Civil War to become 2016’s second-biggest flick, behind Finding Dory, and did it in just a matter of days.
Like last week, Sing nabbed the number two spot, this time with $41.5 million. And though Passengers, starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence, has had a disappointing run, its $15.6 million haul was good enough to land in third. With $10.2 million in ticket sales, Moana came in fourth. And in fifth place was Fences, with receipts worth $10.1 million.
Rounding out the Top 10 were Why Him? in sixth with $9.6 million, while Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling’s widely celebrated La La Land finished in seventh with $9.4 million. Meanwhile, Assassin’s Creed secured eighth place with $8 million, and Manchester By The Sea came in ninth with $4.3 million. Just making it into the last spot and narrowly edging out Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them was Collateral Beauty. It earned $4.1 million.
