Rogue One has joined an elite group of Hollywood films that have grossed more than $1 billion worldwide.
The Star Wars anthology film crossed that threshold over the weekend despite earning just $7 million on the domestic charts and finishing out of the top five. Yet its international intrigue is topping what’s happening in North America, where it’s less than $1 million away from reaching the half-billion-dollar mark.
The International market has been led by the United Kingdom with $77.5 million at last count, according to The Numbers. China is right behind with $59.4 million, while Australia has generated $34.3 million in receipts.
Rogue One is now ranked ninth among international box office films for 2016, but is sure to pass The Secret Life of Pets for the No. 8 slot this coming week. To slip into the top five, it will have to add another $50 million to its box office take, something that might be very difficult to do this late in the game.
