    Rogue One facing a struggle at box office in China

    If you were betting that ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ might be on its way to besting ‘Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens’ at the box office, this may not be the news you’re looking for. While Gareth Edwards’ hard-edged prequel has gone down a storm with audiences in the west, it seems the much-coveted Chinese box office is a different story. Opening in China today, ticket presales point toward ‘Rogue One’ enjoying an opening weekend to the tune of RMB 40-50 million – which might not sound bad, until you learn that equates to somewhere between £4.7 – 5.8 million.

    Daisy Ridley: Star Wars Episode 8 Script ‘is Fantastic’

    By Sam Ashurst ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’s breakout star Daisy Ridley has revealed that she’s signed up for at least one more ‘Star Wars’ movie and says Rian Johnson’s script for 2017′s ‘Episode VIII’ is “fantastic”.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens Predicted To Make A Ridiculous Amount Of Money

    It’s more or less assured that ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ will become the biggest movie of all time at the worldwide box office. The predictions coincide with another bold move by Disney, who bought Lucasfilm for what now seems like a bargain price of $4 billion in 2012. It’s safe to say that with its pedigree and past performances at the box office on six previous occasions, coupled with recent patterns of spending by moviegoers that surpassing this already staggering achievement is more than likely. The likely performance of the movie, directed by J.J. Abrams and starring Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac, alongside original stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, will raise the bar for James Cameron’s long-in-gestation 'Avatar’ sequels.
