As expected Yahoo is reporting that Rogue One has finally crossed the $1 Billion at the worldwide box office. In the US, it has grossed $512.2 Million and in the rest of the world $499.1 Million bringing the total to $1.011B. This means is RO is the fourth movie from 2016 to have crossed the $1 Billion (the other movies are also movies owned by a Disney company).
Rogue One has had an impressive run in cinemas, on its opening week it was the first at the box office worldwide and it remained number one in the US for three weeks in a row and grossed $1 Billion in only 39 days. It’s the third highest grossing Star Wars movie (The Force Awakens $2.068B being the second and The Phantom Menace being the second $1.027B). It was also the highest grossing movie of 2016 in the US and the seventh movie to have reach $500M at the US box office and it only took it 32 days to do so. Those are impressive achievements!
