“Rogue One” Scores $29M On Preview Night

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has reportedly pulled in an estimated $29 million in sales on preview night, off 49% from the record $57 million Thursday night haul “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” did a year ago.

Even so, ‘Rogue One’ still managed the biggest Thursday preview of the year ahead of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” ($27.7M) and “Captain America: Civil War” ($25.0M).

Critical reaction to the film is also slightly lower than ‘Force Awakens’ according to film review aggregators like Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes along with ComScore PostTrak audience polls.

The film has brought in an estimated $33 million internationally after its first two days of release in 47 territories including the UK, Australia and France.
