Next week Rogue One should hold at number one again, as Underworld: Blood Wars is its only real competition. It should be a close race. Tune in to see if I’m right.

Cast & filmmakers attend an exclusive screening of Lucasfilm's highly anticipated, first-ever, standalone Star Wars adventure, "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" at the BFI IMAX on Tuesday December 13, 2016 in London, UK.

Until then, happy movie going!
