‘Rogue One’ On Its Way to a Box of Record for Disney in 2016?

‘Rogue One,’ the 2016 American space epic, pre-opened to a Thursday box office record of $29 million and as of Friday had grossed $ 71.1 million in the United States and Canada alone, with a global collection of $104.1 million.

It could well be on its way to a $150 million weekend box office bonanza in the North American territories, and worldwide ‘Rogue One’ is expected to gross anywhere between $280 and $350 million – not as big a weekend opening as ‘The Force Awakens’ but not too far behind either.

The Disney-Lucas combination ‘Rogue One’ is the first standalone story of the Star Wars saga and is expected to be merged into its mainstay saga films for years ahead.

 

Disney has announced that tickets for "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" will go on sale Monday.
