“Rogue One” easily outdistanced Illumination-Universal’s animated comedy “Sing,” which came in with $9.6 million at 4,022 sites on its second day on Thursday to lift its two-day total to $20.6 million. That’s still a strong launch and portends a debut of at least $70 million during the six-day holiday period through Dec. 26.

 

“Rogue One” took in another $15 million internationally on Thursday to reach $197.9 million, led by the U.K. with $35.1 million, Germany with $18.1 million, France with $16.5 million, Australia with $16.1 million and Japan with $11.6 million.

“Rogue One” opens in South Korea on Dec. 28 and in China on Jan. 6. Director Gareth Edwards and stars Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Donnie Yen and Jiang Wen attended the Beijing premiere on Wednesday.

 

The worldwide total for “Rogue One” is already the 216th highest of all time, topping the entire runs of 2008’s “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian” and 1999’s “The Mummy.”
