Entertainment website Variety has this week revealed that the latest Star Wars movie in the form of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has now earned more than $1 billion in worldwide ticket sales since its release during December 2016.
The latest milestone makes Rogue One the 28th movie to pass such a goal and the 13th Disney film to do so. Variety explains a little more about the statistics and the speed at which the latest Star Wars movie, which some thought was going to be a flop has progressed over the last couple of months.
“Rogue One” needed 39 days to cross the mark with $512 million domestically and $499 million internationally. It’s the third “Star Wars” movie to gross more than $1 billion, joining “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” ($2.07 billion) and “Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace” ($1.03 billion).
“Rogue One” is also Disney’s fourth 2016 release to cross the $1 billion mark, joining “Captain America: Civil War,” “Finding Dory,” and “Zootopia.” It’s the top domestic grosser released in 2016 and ranks seventh on the all-time list.
