EW is reporting that The Force Awakens has surpassed 1.51 Billion in world box office sales!
Star Wars: The Force Awakens rang in the new year by breaking even more box office records this weekend, raking in an estimated $88.3 million domestically.
That means that The Force Awakens earned the highest domestic third weekend ever, and its domestic total is now at $740.3 million. Earlier this weekend, it surpassed both Jurassic World ($652.3 million) and Titanic ($658.7 million) to become the second-highest grossing domestic movie ever (unadjusted for inflation), and within the next few days, it should dethrone Avatar ($760.5 million) to become the biggest domestic movie ever.
The Force Awakens also became the fastest (and only the second movie ever) to reach $700 million, doing it 16 days. Avatar took 72 days to hit that mark. The Force Awakens also set a new domestic record for the biggest New Year’s Day box office haul with $34.5 million.
