And so it is all done.
On Wednesday Star Wars: The Force Awakens officially toppled Avatar’s record for the highest box office gross of all time in the domestic market (aka the North American Movie Territory: USA, Canada, Puerto Rico and Guam to be exact). It took only 20 days for this major, major record to fall. As it now stands, Box Office Mojo has the movie at $764 million and it should hit $800 million this weekend.
What else is there for this movie to conquer? Oh, that’s right: China. Release date there is Jan. 9.
