“Rogue One” Winning New Year’s Weekend Box Office

Rogue One Box Office New Years Weekend


Rogue One is not only winning the New Year’s weekend box office, but it’s also on track to become the second highest-grossing film of 2016. Get the details, and check out the Top 10 estimates 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 will without a doubt win the New Year’s battle, too, with $ 50.8 million. But more impressive is that by Saturday’s end, it should overtake Captain America: Civil War ($ 408 million) to be the year’s second-biggest flick ($ 409 million), behind Finding Dory ($ 486.3 million). Incredibly, the milestone took only days to reach.

Like last week, Sing should nab the number two spot, this time with $ 42.5 million. And though Passengers, starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence, has had a disappointing run, its $ 15.5 million haul will be good enough to land in third. With $ 10.4 million in ticket sales, Moana is projected to rank fourth.

In fifth place will probably be Fences, if the critically-acclaimed film brings in receipts worth $ 9.9 million. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling’s La La Land, widely celebrated as the best movie of the year, should be right behind with $ 9.4 million for the number six spot. And Why Him? may have a seventh-place finish with $ 8.6 million.

Possibly rounding out the Top 10 are Assassin’s Creed ($ 7.9 million), Manchester By The Sea ($ 4 million), and Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them ($ 3.9 million). All figures are currently estimates, and Gossip Cop will have updates. Happy New Year!
