Rogue One is expected to finish the year as 2016’s second highest-grossing movie, as it’ll likely surpass Captain America: Civil War’s $408 million haul within the next two days. With a $486 million gross, Finding Dory will almost certainly finish as 2016’s top domestic box office earner.

Rogue One’s worldwide gross currently sits at $687.7 million, which makes it the 10th highest worldwide grosser of 2016.  It’s expected to cross $700 million by the end of the weekend, according to Forbes.
