Rogue One Box Office


The “Star Wars” spinoff “Rogue One” led the box office for the third straight week, taking in an estimated $64.3 million over the four-day New Year’s weekend, according to studio estimates Monday.
The success of Gareth Edwards’ “Rogue One” has only further cemented a record year for the Walt Disney Co., which ran up $2.7 billion in domestic ticket sales in 2016 and accounted for more than 25 percent of the market.
“Rogue One,” which has now grossed about $440 million in North America and nearly $800 million globally, currently slots in as the year’s No. 2 movie, following “Finding Dory” (also from Disney). The studio notched four of the five top films and has, in a year marked by franchise struggles, made a routine of churning out well-reviewed, hugely profitable blockbusters.

As you know by now the sad news of the passing of Carrie Fisher aka Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan.

Carrie Fisher was born on October 21, 1956, in Los Angeles, California. Her role as Princess Leia in Star Wars and its sequels made her famous. She struggled with alcohol and drug abuse in the 1980s, but came back in 1987 with her hit book Postcards from the Edge, which she adapted into a movie starring Meryl Streep. She went on to play supporting roles in films, and was a prolific author and screenwriter. Fisher reprised her role playing Leia for the Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens in 2015. Fisher died on December 27, 2016, just days after suffering a major heart attack. She was 60 years old.
