The three days estimates are in for this weekend at the box office, and there weren’t too many surprises. Here’s what went down:
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story held on to the top spot for a third weekend, bringing in an estimated $50 million to raise its total to $425 million, making it the second biggest film of 2016, behind only Finding Dory, another Disney film, which ended its run with $486 million. There’s a very likely chance that Rogue One will cross the $500 million mark before it ends its own run in theatres.
As for the rest of the top five, Sing was in second place with $42.5 million, as it closes in on $200 million. Passengers was in third place with $15.5 million. Moana hit fourth place with $10.4 million as it crossed the $200 million mark. The Denzel Washington-directed Fences closed things out in fifth place with $9.9 million.
So, to recap, here were our predictions:
1) Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – $58 million
2) Sing – $40 million
3) Passengers – $15 million
4) Why Him? – $11 million
5) Assassin’s Creed – $9 million
