'Hidden Figures' wound up topping box office over 'Rogue One' 2017 images

It was a tight race for “Hidden Figures” and “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” on Sunday, but once the actual box office numbers came in on Monday, the Taraji P. Henson film unseated the spinoff.

With an ongoing taste for space, moviegoers propelled the NASA drama “Hidden Figures” past “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” at the box office.

“Hidden Figures,” which tells the true story of three black female mathematicians integral to the early success of the American space program, sold $22.8 million in tickets over the weekend, enough to knock “Rogue One” from the top spot it held for three weeks.

The “Star Wars” spinoff finished second with $22 million, according to studio tallies released Monday.

“Hidden Figures” opened in limited release over Christmas, but it found its first big chance to reach audiences when it expanded by more than 2,400 locations Friday.

The top 20 movies at U.S. and Canadian theaters Friday through Sunday, followed by distribution studio, gross, number of theater locations, average receipts per location, total gross and number of weeks in release, as compiled Monday by comScore:
