Rogue One Wins the Weekend Again, Sing Holds for Second
As expected, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was number one at the box office again this holiday weekend bringing in an estimated $49.5 million. The film has earned $424.9 million domestically after three weeks.
In second place, again as expected, was Sing which earned an additional $42.8 million domestically in its second week. That’s an improvement on the previous weekend where it earned $35.3 million. Domestically the film has earned $166.4 million after two weeks and with a budget of $75 million the film is doing quite well.
Passengers also improved upon last weekend’s $14.9 million. The film remained in third adding $16.2 million to its domestic total. The film sits at $61.5 million after two weeks and with a budget of $110 million it’ll have to fight to become profitable.
Moana improves moving to fourth from sixth and earning an estimated $10.97 million after six weeks. The film has earned $210 million domestically.
Rounding out the top five is Why Him? which added $10.6 to its domestic total. With $34.6 million earned and a $38 million budget, the film should make a small profit.
Assassin’s Creed dropped to eighth in its second week earning an estimated $8.6 million. With $39.6 million in so far the film needs a miracle.
For comics Doctor Strange was #18 earning $665,000 domestically. The film has earned $230.1 million domestically so far after nine weeks and will soon be wrapping up its domestic run.
We’ll update this as more info comes in and come back in an hour as we look at where the comic films ended up for the year.
