After a mere three weeks in theatres, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has become the second highest grossing Star Wars movie in box office history. As of Friday, the film hit $461-Million domestically, with an additional $383-Million coming in from overseas. This puts the movie's current worldwide take up to $844-Million.
As of today, the movie will bypass the $848-Million brought in by Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith in the summer of 2005, making it the third highest grossing Star Wars movie from a worldwide standpoint. However, the $461-Million brought in here in North America has made it the number two film overall for Lucasfilm as a production studio.
Additionally, the Gareth Edwards prequel is now the #4 all-time for Disney's Buena Vista distrobution in the United States. It has already eclipsed Avengers: Age of Ultron and only sits beneath the likes of Finding Dory, The Avengers, and The Force Awakens.
The movie opens in China today.
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.
