Weekend Actuals: ‘Rogue One’ Is Number One w/ $155.0M, ‘Moana’ Second w/ $12.7M, ‘Collateral Beauty’ Is Collateral Damage w/ $7.1M

As literally everybody expected, Disney’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story completely vanquished its competition at the box office this weekend, with a $155.08 million debut. That’s the third-highest opening of the year, after May’s Captain America: Civil War and March’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, though it’s also 37.4 percent behind the $247.96 million debut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens last December.

Warner Bros.’ drama Collateral Beauty failed to capitalize on the name recognition of Will Smith, once the single most bankable star in Hollywood, with an underwhelming fourth place debut at $7.10 million. Disney’s Moana, the box office leader for the past three consecutive weekends, dipped to second place with 31.3 percent drop to $12.72 million. And Lionsgate’s Best Picture contender La La Land expanded from five to 200 theaters, taking seventh place with $4.10 million — very impressive given its still-limited release.
