Star Wars: The Force Awakens continues to roll, now up to $1 billion worldwide


Just a brief update about Star Wars: The Force Awakens which is now into its second week of demolishing the records at the movie box office. 

Here are a couple of marks set this weekend: it finished this weekend at $153.5 million for an overall domestic haul of $544.5 million, which sets the record for the largest ten-day domestic gross in history.

Worldwide, it crossed the $1 billion mark, and it is the fastest movie to that mark in history.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens also holds the Christmas Day record ($49.3 million) and recently set the Monday and Tuesday records. And I am sure there are others I haven’t mentioned.

Expect more records to fall as this movie now sets its sights on Avatar’s record for highest domestic gross of all time ($760.5 million).
