Sing took the fourth slotwith 8MM on a 37 percent drop that's not bad after a long weekend.  La La Land rounded out the Top Five with 6.4MM and is proving quite profitable worldwide against a 30MM budget.  Below th fold, Rogue One lands in sixth place at breaks the billion-dollar barrier worldwide.
