It took quite some time, but Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has finally surpassed Finding Dory to become the second highest grossing film of 2016. Read on for the complete box office breakdown!...

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story made $5.2 million domestically this past weekend and $14 million overseas this past week, and this was enough to push the film to yet another box office milestone. The current domestic total now stands at $520 million and the current overseas total at $513 million. Together this makes an overall worldwide cume of $1.033 billion which means the Star Wars flick has surpassed Finding Dory's $1.028 billion. Pretty impressive, right?

Box office experts now say that Rogue One could finish at around the $1.06-1.07 billion mark. Obviously, this means that Marvel's Captain America: Civil War will remain the worldwide box office champion of 2016 despite Rogue One claiming the domestic crown by more than $110 million.
