Rogue One steals the top of the box office

There is just no stopping Disney this year.

R0gue One: A Star Wars Story scored a win at the box office this weekend with the second biggest December opening ever. It took in $155M in the U.S. and $135.5M foreign for a global haul of $290.5M off of a $200M budget.

Moana is the latest in a string of hits for Disney. The latest animated feature from the House of Mouse took in $11.6M in its fourth weekend. Domestically it sits at $161.85M and globally $280.25M.

Third place went to Office Christmas Party which took in $8.45M for a new domestic total of $31.51M off of a $45M budget.

Collateral Beauty landed in fourth place in its first weekend with $7M off of a $36M budget.

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, the first in a new series of movies set in the world of Harry Potter, took fifth place this weekend with $5M for a new domestic total of $207.68M off of its budget of $180M. With its foreign numbers it sits at $717.48M globally.

Assassin’s Creed, Sing and Passengers are the big openers this week. I think Rogue One will take the top spot again, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
