Sunday Update: ‘Rogue One’ Expected to Stay #1 as ‘Sing’ Continues to Perform

Another holiday Sunday means that we won’t be able to look at the full box office landscape Until Monday, with only a portion of studios reporting three and four-day estimates.

 

Leading the charge, Rogue One looks to be the box office champion yet again with Boxoffice projecting a $50.2 million three-day tally and an estimated $65 million four-day haul. The Star Wars one-off entered Saturday with a $393.5 million domestic total. Fellow Disney release Moana is projected by Boxorfice to finish the three-day weekend with $10.8 million and the four-day frame with a $15.2 million haul. Disney will be reporting its official estimates on Monday.

 

Sing kept up the pace in its second weekend, grossing $41.45 million in the three-day frame and an estimated $53.74 million across the four-day holiday. The animated film has grossed $177.4 domestically. Sing is expected to reach $104 million overseas tomorrow, putting its global haul at $281.3 million.

 

Passengers is projected by Boxoffice to finish the three-day weekend with $15.6 million and the four-day frame with $20 million. Sony will be providing its official estimates on Monday.

 

Fences built up a $10.2 million three-day weekend and an estimated $13 million four-day tally in its first full weekend in wide release. The awards contender went wide last Sunday and has now grossed $32.7 million.

 

Boxoffice is projecting a $10 million three-day weekend for La La Land across 750 locations, with a chance to reach $13.1 million over the four-day frame. Lionsgate will be providing official estimates for the musical on Monday.

 

Why Him? grossed $10 million in the three-day frame and is expected to finish the four-day weekend with $13 million. The R-rated comedy is currently playing at 3,008 locations and has grossed a total of $37.5 million in North America. Comedies traditionally struggle overseas, with the UK and Australia usually being the obvious exceptions. Why Him? opened in both those markets this weekend, taking in $3.4 million from Australia and $2.7 million in the UK (both figures include previews). Why Him? finished the weekend with $10.1 million from 41 markets has now grossed a total of $14.3 million overseas. The comedy’s global gross stands at $51.8 million.

 

Traling slightly behind Why Him? is fellow R-rated comedy Office Christmas Party, which finished its fourth weekend with a $3.1 three-day frame and an estimated $3.7 million four-day tally. Office Christmas Party enters the new year with a $51.2 million total in North America.

 

Assassin’s Creed failed to hit the mark in its second weekend, finishing the three-day frame with $8 million from 2,996 locations. The four-day total is expected to reach $10 million. Assassin’s Creed is the latest videogame adaptation to falter domestically: the film’s current $41 million in North America comes after back-to-back holiday weekends. This weekend’s $22 million haul across 49 markets lifted its overseas total to $44.1 million, close to a 50/50 split between its domestic and overseas totals. Germany is the stand-out overseas market at the moment, opening in second place with $5.2 million (including previews). Assassin’s Creed has grossed a total of $85.1 million globally.

 
Collateral Beauty shed about 10% of last weekend’s locations but only saw a 5% from the previous frame, finishing with a three-day tally of $4 million. The drama continues to struggle with a $25.69 million cume in North America. The film grossed $4.6 million from 39 territories overseas, reporting a $19.9 million total. Collateral Beauty has grossed a total of $45.5 million worldwide.
 

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them continues to draw audiences seven weeks into its release. The Harry Potter spin-off earned $3.9 million in the three-day weekend, taking its total in North America to $223.9 million. The film added $8.7 million from 59 territories overseas this weekend, crossing the $550 million mark outside of North American and helping launch the new franchise to $775 million globally. China ($85.6M), the UK ($63.7M), and Japan ($54.1M) rank among its top overseas performers.
