Things We Saw Today: Rogue One Scores $33 Million Overseas in Two Days
I know it’s not surprising that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has already made a lot of money, but it’s still incredible to hear the amount it’s already pulled in. The film has already been released in 47 countries and raked in $33 million so far overseas. According to Deadline, $5 million came from the U.K., $3.6 million came from Australia, and $3.1 million came from both Germany and France on Thursday night alone. Since the movie opens today in the U.S., you can bet those numbers will start coming in within the next few days. Have you already seen it? Check out our review here and then head here to discuss.
