Box Office: ‘Star Wars’ Crosses $1 Billion Globally at Record Pace


“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” showed few signs of flagging over Christmas weekend, barreling past the $1 billion mark globally at a faster clip than any film in history.

It’s becoming old hat to recount the various ways that the seventh film in the science-fiction fantasy is vaporizing records, but, familiar or not, “The Force Awakens” once again ground down high-water marks over the holidays, racking up $153.5 million domestically. That represents both the biggest Christmas holiday result and the best second weekend for a film.

The story is too old to be commented.

I think we're looking at our biggest film of the year, folks. Two billion dollars is just around the corner for The Force Awakens.

Congrats to Force Awakens. Certainly more deserved than Avatar (who I'm guessing was previous front-runner).

Avatar is still the highest grossing film of all time not counting for inflation. That still goes to gone with the wind with 3.2 billion adjusted for inflation(not that anyone really cares lol).
So here's hoping it beats avatars record for highest grossing film.

Right. I was just speaking about this current record in the article here (quickest to 1 billion). Not sure if THAT particular record was previously held by Avatar or another film.
