NEW YORK — “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.

1. “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” $65,522,676 / $440,901,381 (3)
