I think its going to be close but hoping they do the same market next year as I have a feeling what could do well and its neither Star Wars or super hero related...

Betting no longer available on the market...

The new Harry Potterish film could be a threat but still hoping Captain America holds on.

'Finding Dory' nudges past 'Zootopia' to become this year's second highest grossing film and it's now only $129.2m behind 'Captain America: Civil War'. Oooh.

The state of play right now...

With under 21 days to go, I think it's 99.9% certain that 'Captain America: Civil War' is the winner even with 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' opening this week as it'd have to outperform 'Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens' like an absolute beast to smash past $1,153.3 billion in 21 days.

I noticed there was a showing of Rouge One that went down well with Star Wars fans. Wouldn't really expect anything else! Agree though, it would need to do amazing to beat it.

Really hope this market is on again next year!

The hype around Rouge On actually seems decent. It might have left it too late to beat Captain America but expect it to open big!

155M usd in the U.S. http://www.wsj.com/articles/rogue-one-a ... 1482083675

Extrapolated to previous success of Force Awakens it should land somewhere arond 550-600M usd in the U.S. (Numbers from Force Awakens: 248M usd debut, final 937M usd)

It was close, Finding Dory put up a brave fright and if Rouge One had opened sooner it probably would have got it.

But Captain America is the biggest grossing film of 2016!

2/1 tip - Happy New Year!

Barring shenanigans and the guy on chat being wrong about the terms and conditions, this was never really in doubt despite 'Finding Dory' being a very close challenger. $700m in three weeks for 'Rogue One'! Wow...wish I could make that kind of money in three weeks! :D
