It was bound to happen sooner or later. Rogue One has now surpassed $1 billion at the worldwide box office, having grossed a total of $1,011,301,563 worldwide.
$512,201,563 of this amount came from the USA, whilst the overseas total currently sits at $499,100,000. It's still playing in most territories, so expect its final gross to be significantly higher.
Rogue One is now the third Star Wars film to have hit the billion dollar mark (if you include the 3D rerelease of The Phantom Menace), and it won't be the last. But for now, let's live in the moment and bask in the glory. I offer my warmest congratulations to everyone at Disney and Lucasfilm for their huge success.
