Rogue One Wins Christmas Weekend with $64.5 Million

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, easily dominated the box office this weekend with $64.4 million, for a domestic total of $286.4 million.  It also raked in another $47 million overseas for a foreign total of $237.4 million. Rogue One has made $538.8 million worldwide, so far.

The American Idol-ish animated flick Sing, took in a decent $35 million and has already grossed $55.9 million since opening Wednesday.  It should hold over well during the week.

Other newcomers, Passengers ($14.9 million), Why Him? ($11.1 million), and Assassin's Creed ($10.3 million) round out the top 5.  Since the budgets of Passengers and Assassin's Creed are $110 million and $125 million a piece, this doesn't bode well. They'll be hoping for a strong overseas gross.

Awards contention films: Fences expanded in theaters on Christmas Day to help bump it up to the 7th spot ($6.7 million) and La La Land also expanded a bit more to help it land 8th place ($5.7 million)
