Star Wars is once again taking the world by storm.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opened in 54 international markets this weekend and earned $135.5 million. It debuted at the top of the box office in all markets and was the highest opening weekend of 2016 in France, Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
That's the fourth highest international December opening in box office history, following Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Avatar, and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
Combined with Rogue One's huge domestic opening weekend, the second highest in box office history, that puts the first Star Wars standalone movie at $290.5 million globally after just three days.
In Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, in a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire's ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is written by Gareth Edwards and written by Chris Weitz and Tony Gilroy, from a story by John Knoll and Gary Whitta. The film star Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Riz Ahmed, Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker.0comments
