There is no other film to talk about this weekend other than Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which without any problem becomes the top film of the week.

A massive opening weekend of $155 million for Rogue One was good, its not the highest of the year and not as high as Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens from last year, but this is new territory for the Star Wars franchise.

Despite what way you look at it Rogue One has a good start, and like Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them from earlier in the year it shows that these worlds can survive beyond the core story.

Moana fell into the runner up spot this week with $11 million, it gives Disney the top 2 films in the US, not bad, and brings Moana's total to $161.8 million.

Collateral Beauty, new from Will Smith, also opening in the top 10, at 4, with a $7 million debut weekend.

Longest running film and highest grossing for again this week is Doctor Strange at 9 with $226 million after 7 weeks.
