Rogue One: A Star Wars story is now showing across 47 countries worldwide. Director Gareth Edwards has done a great job in keeping the essence of the original saga in this spin-off. In turn, it creates a new story set in a universe filled with never before seen planets and species. The return of the Force has been well received so far.
Rogue One debuted in theaters last Thursday. In the US alone, it grossed around $29 million on its first opening day beating Batman VS Superman with its $27 million and Captain America: Civil War with its $25 million record. Internationally, Rogue One pocketed nearly $33 million, topping the charts in all countries where it was released.
The film sets up the tone for more upcoming Star Wars movie such as Episode VIII on 2017 and the Han Solo spin-off film on 2018. At this rate, Rogue One could become highest grossing film of the year. Come back for more news about movie’s first opening weekend sales.
