‘Rogue One’ Dominates Box Office for 4th Week in a Row

NASA was no match for Stars Wars this weekend, as Rogue One once again claimed the top spot at the box office—for the fourth week in a row. Hidden Figures, a drama about the black female mathematicians behind NASA’s first space missions, opened in wide release Jan. 6 after previously being available only in select theaters. It trailed behind Rogue One, with an estimated $21.8 million in domestic ticket sales compared to the Star Wars offshoot’s $21.97 million. Rogue One has done equally well overseas, with $46.6 million in international sales. It also topped the Chinese box office after opening there Jan. 6, raking in $31 million over the weekend. The film, which tells the story of how the franchise’s rebels manage to steal the plans for the Death Star, is already expected to be the biggest box-office winner of 2016.

‘Rogue One’ Baddie Ben Mendelsohn on His Beef with Darth Vader
The acclaimed Aussie actor opens up about his militaristic villain in the new ‘Star Wars’ film, and the movie’s politics.

If you sense a disturbance in the force, or at least in the air between Rogue One’s sinister Death Star boss Orson Krennic and Star Wars’ iconic Darth Vader, it’s because the two heavies of the Galactic Empire have their own interoffice beef in this week’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Australian actor Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline, Animal Kingdom) shed light on the animosity between Rogue One’s sinister and ambitious Krennic and Darth Vader, who returns to the franchise in Gareth Edwards’ standalone spin-off set during a crucial moment in Alliance history leading up to the events of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.

“While I think that Krennic is dismissive of the mythology around Vader, I don’t think he dismisses his toe-to-toe abilities by any stretch of the imagination,” Mendelsohn told The Daily Beast ahead of Rogue One’s premiere. The gulf between the two Imperial enforcers is so vast, it’s literally designed into their costumes: Vader commanding in his signature shiny black, Krennic preening in his antiseptic white cloak.
