NEW YORK (AP) — "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" remained the number 1 film at the box office for the third straight week, as the "Star Wars" spinoff maintained its holiday-season dominance into the new year.

The Disney blockbuster sold $65.5 million in tickets in North America over the four-day weekend, according to final box-office figures Tuesday. Another holdover, Universal's animated "Sing," also followed in second for the second straight week with $57.3 million.

Sony's sci-fi romance "Passengers" ($21.1 million over its second weekend) and Fox's video-game adaptation "Assassin's Creed" ($11.4 million in its second weekend) had a harder time drawing audiences to match their budgets, while Oscar contenders "La La Land," ''Fences" and "Manchester by the Sea" continued to pull in big, largely adult crowds.
