BOX OFFICE: ROGUE ONE Tops BATMAN v SUPERMAN And CIVIL WAR At Thursday Night Previews

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story finally reached North American theaters last night, and it scored the biggest numbers for Thursday night previews in 2016! How high did it go? Hit the jump to find out more.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story kicked off its run at the domestic box office with a massive $29 million from Thursday night previews. That's pretty much exactly what analysts predicted, and the movie earned more than both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($27.7 million) and Captain America: Civil War ($25 million). That means it scored the biggest debut of 2016, though it's a figure which doesn't quite match Star Wars: The Force Awakens' massive $57 million. 

As of right now, it's thought that Rogue One will have an opening weekend of $135 million - $150 million. Overseas, it's been in some theaters since Wednesday, and tracking points to a global bow of $300 - $350 million worldwide. It had already earned $33 million by Thursday, so this is a great start! 

Rogue One doesn't face too much competition this weekend as Collateral Beauty (which stars Will Smith) is the only other major new opening. However, that's been panned by critics, so chances are moviegoers won't be flocking to see that instead of the latest story set in a Galaxy Far, Far Away.
