    Seemed like it was common sense that it would with 3D and inflation. Sure, it’s not going to do $2 billion like 2015’s, but I thought everyone assumed it was still $1 billion, just for being Star Wars.

  2. Congrats to the Star Wars Team! Loved the movie.

    I remember some dumb dumbs commenting on here saying Rogue One would never hit a million.
    Where are you know nothing idiots? Come out wherever you are.

    I guess all those anti-ROUGUE ONE boycottors because the screenwriters were a bunch of not-MRA PC
    Hyollywood libtards… faced the power of a fully operational SW fandom buying all those movie tickets?

      Well better than the half-plagiarised, half copy-and-paste story of “The Farce Awakens” featuring an emo Sith reject wannabe with mommy, daddy and grand-pappie issues…
