Star Wars: The Force Awakens Crosses $1 Billion, Stays in First

star-wars-force-awakens-official-posterThe records keep falling to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The film broke even more records this past weekend. The film cross the $1 billion mark worldwide in record time. The film earned an estimated $153.5 million this past weekend, the highest second weekend of all time. It beat the previous record holder, Jurassic World, by $46.9 million. The film has earned $544 million domestically and $546 million internationally for a total of $1.09 billion.

In just two weekends, the film is now the second highest grossing domestic release in 2015 and the fifth worldwide. Avatar holds the domestic record of $760.5 million, and it’s not a question “if” Star Wars will top that, but more likely “when” will it top that. The film is currently fifteenth in the all-time non-adjusted grosses. It would have to over double its earnings, and has yet to open in some key markets like China.

A whole bunch of other films opened up this weekend as well.

Daddy’s Home opened in second place earning an estimated $38.8 million, better than expectations. Joy opened in third with $17.5 million. Concussion, which takes on the NFL and football, opened in sixth with $11 million. The Point Break remake came in eighth earning an estimated $10.2 million. The Hateful Eight opened in limited released coming in eleventh and earning $4.5 million. Also opening in limited release, The Revenant earned an estimated $471,000 and came in 21st; Mr. Six earned $286,847 for 24th place; and 45 Years earned $69,300 for 29th place.
