There is certainly nothing as big as Rogue One in theaters now, as it just completed its third straight weekend on top of the box office, and will be on its way to becoming the No. 1 film of all 2016 soon.
While shooting begins in February, the spin-off of "Star Wars" centered on the youth of Han Solo could see its American release shifted from May 25 to December 13, 2018 according to the rumor of the day.
The year started with a Star Wars movie in the number one position, and ended with another Star Wars movie in first place, as the Hollywood movie industry closed out 2016 with record-breaking sales.
What's interesting is that this trailer uses footage which didn't actually make Rogue One's final cut, as we see the character uttering a dire warning most fans previously assumed must have been directed at Jyn Erso. Movie executives are expecting total domestic box office revenue to hit $11.3 billion when all is said and done, up from $11.14 billion a year earlier.
However, higher ticket prices for 3D, IMAX and other special movie formats, raised the box office above 2015 levels.
With its third straight win at the box office, "Rogue" has proven again its status as the holiday season's biggest victor.
It was nearly an inevitability, but it's now been confirmed that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is officially the UK's biggest film of the 2016 box office. The movie reportedly completed filming for the movie last July.
"La La Land" also took honors for highest per screen average of the 10 highest-grossing films, taking in an estimated $16,440 per screen over the holiday weekend, according to ComScore. The end of that particular arc was bittersweet to say the least, and it helped to set Saw on his own unique path. See how it continued on Star Wars Rebels this weekend! The film relies heavily on movie magic to stitch together new and old, and unfortunately that includes some stunningly bad CGI to revive a couple old faces from the original trilogy. 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.
