The Disney-Lucasfilm tentpole took in $17.7 million domestically on Monday to give it $172.7 million in its first four days, making it the 11th largest domestic grosser of 2016. “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is in the 10th spot at $207.7 million.

Disney announced Monday that it had become the first studio to go past $7 billion in worldwide grosses within a single year. “Captain America: Civil War,” “Finding Dory” and “Zootopia” each topped the $1 billion mark worldwide.
“Rogue One” will face competition at the domestic box office on Wednesday from Universal-Illumination’s “Sing,” Sony’s “Passengers” and Fox’s “Assassin’s Creed.”
“Rogue One” is the eighth film in the Star Wars franchise but the first to step outside the narrative of the other seven films in a standalone story set shortly before the events of 1977’s original “Star Wars” — though Darth Vader, the Galactic Empire and The Death Star remain key elements. Felicity Jones stars with Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Mads Mikkelsen, Donnie Yen, Alan Tudyk and Forest Whitaker.
