I enjoy watching films and discussing them in terms of quality and how they perform financially.

On the final weekend of 2016, no new films were offered and Rogue One took the top spot again. A vast majority of the holdovers either experienced very light drops or increases from last weekend, some larger than others. Here is what transpired.

Rogue One dipped 22.6% and added on $49.5 million in its third weekend, passing $400 million in the process. While this dip was still light, it was about twice as hard of a drop as I expected. However, this is the fifth highest third weekend of all time behind Star Wars 7 ($90.2 million), Avatar ($68.5 million), The Avengers ($55.6 million) and Jurassic World ($54.5 million). It also passed Captain America: Civil War's $408.1 million domestic total to take second place on the 2016 domestic chart and will pass Finding Dory before too long. It is up to $424.9 million through Sunday.

In second place, Sing shot up 21.4% and added on $42.8 million. Its total through Sunday is $166.4 million.

In third place, Passengers increased 7.3% and added on $16.2 million for a total of $61.5 million through Sunday.

Moana surged up 42.3% in fourth place and took in $11 million for a total of $210 million through Sunday.

Rounding out the top five was Why Him? which dipped a light 3.7% and brought in $10.6 million for the weekend with a sturdy total of $34.6 million through Sunday.

In other news, this weekend brought 2016 to a record year with a total yearly box office of $11.369 billion which is up 2.2% from last year's record of $11.129 billion.
