‘The Force Awakens’ Has Record-Shattering Power

Showing no signs of a slowdown, ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ has eclipsed the final Harry Potter movie for the seventh spot in worldwide box office with $1.39 billion.
The seventh Star Wars movie took in $59.5 million on Friday - its 17th day of release - with $34.5 million in the US and another $25 million internationally.
‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2’ grossed $1.34 billion in 2011, Variety.com reported.
Domestic grosses have hit $686 million in 15 days with another $60 million projected for the rest of this weekend. That leaves ‘The Force Awakens’ on track to top the all-time mark set six years ago by ‘Avatar’ at $760 million early next week.
International grosses have gone past $700 million. At its current pace, the movie - starring Harrison Ford, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega - will soon be moving past the fourth- and fifth-highest entries on the worldwide list, occupied by Disney-Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ with $1.52 billion and Universal’s ‘Furious 7’ at $1.515 billion.
‘The Force Awakens’ will then take another week to get to the third spot on the list, currently occupied by Universal’s ‘Jurassic World’ at $1.67 billion. At that point, the movie is certain to receive a significant boost after it opens in China on Jan. 9.
Currently, the top foreign markets for ‘The Force Awakens’ are the UK with $133 million, Germany with $73.9 million, France with $61.4 million and Australia at $47 million.
The booming Chinese market has the capability of becoming the No. 1 international territory. Box office analysts have already said that ‘The Force Awakens’ may be able to reach the top two films on the worldwide chart: ‘Titanic’ at $2.19 billion and ‘Avatar’ at $2.78 billion.
