Weekend Estimates: Rogue One Tops Sing

January 1st, 2017

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

With most studios closed for New Year’s Day, the weekend estimates have a rather piecemeal look as of this morning. We do have an official weekend estimate for Sing, which Universal projects will make $41.5 million over the three-day weekend and $53.4 million over four, for a total coming out of the holidays at an impressive $177.3 million. That will put it in second place, not far behind Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Disney won’t be releasing numbers until tomorrow, but we should see a three-day weekend around $50 million, $65 million over four days, and a total of about $440 million by Tuesday morning.

Among films reporting, Hidden Figures is having a great weekend, and should post $815,000 from just 25 locations, per Fox. 20th Century Women is also clocking up impressive numbers, with $112,000 expected from four locations. La La Land should do $9.5 million or so from 750 theaters, for a 64% increase from last weekend and seventh place overall.
