‘The Force Awakens’ Blasts Past $1 Billion In Record Breaking Time | Film News
They’ve done it. Disney’s and J.J Abrams’ creation Star Wars: The Force Awakens has reached $1 billion in light speed conditions, faster than any film in cinematic history. The latest sequel to the space saga has reached an approximate total of $1.901 billion worldwide in a mere 12 days – one day faster than previous record holder Jurassic World (2015).
In not even two weeks since its release, the movie has already accomplished many achievements, including the best debut ($238 million), first film to earn single-day gross over $100 million, biggest IMAX debut ($48 million), most advanced ticket sales (over $100 million) and the best opening for a Star Wars film (beating Revenge of the Sith’s total of $108.4 million).
With the film’s profits constantly increasing, it’s very possible the movie could become the most powerful in the galaxy, potentially beating James Cameron’s beloved Avatar ($2.8 billion) to the highest grossing film of all time.
