Rogue One Jumps Past $600-Million Globally

With a mere two weeks under its belt, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has raked in a massive $615.9-Million at the worldwide box office. The first standalone Star Wars movie has brought in  $275-Million internationally, including $19.7-Million through this past Tuesday.

Performing 8.2% better than on the recent holiday Monday, the movie continues to track strongly both overseas and here in North America. Analysts predict that it will reach $700-Million domestically come Friday, and $300-Million overseas some time today.

While the Gareth Edwards movie is not making as much as The Force Awakens did last year, these numbers are still downright incredible - especially for a film that has been out for such a short period of time. There is no doubt that it will reach the $1-Billion milestone before finishing its theatrical run. Yet, we can't help but wonder how much higher it will climb after that.

Currently, the global tally slots the spinoff as the #11 movie of 2016, behind Disney’s own Doctor Strange, which opened in theaters back on November 4th.

Set before the events of 1977's Star Wars: A New Hope, the latest film follows a group of Rebel Alliance operatives as they attempt to steal the plans to the Empire's Death Star battle station.

Starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Riz Ahmed and Alan Tudyk, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is playing in theaters now.
