Star Wars: The Force Awakens Leaves Theaters With $936.66 Million Domestic

CB: After just shy of six months at 168 days, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has left all domestic theaters. It finished its run with a staggering $936,662,225 in the North American box office. In pure dollars, that's the top dollar amount by a significant margin, as Avatar comes in second at $760.5 million. The numbers get trickier adjusted for inflation, as it clocks in at #11 overall (but still above Avatar and one of only three films in the top 25 from the 21st century), but adjusted gross is only the pure dollar amount, it does not account for the shifting film industry, including higher levels of competition, more frequent releases, and competition from outside forces like television, video games, and many other sources of entertainment available now. Still, that's double of sister-studio's Avengers: Age of Ultron, which pulled in $459 million.

Why not instead of measuring "inflation" they measure butts in seats? If more people simply went out and saw the movie, then it's a fair comparison. I find the inflation thing stupid as there are so many variables to it, but simply say "oh well inflation" doesn't matter.

Also Disney would wise to re release the film in theaters soon, get the hype going a little bit over summer, and advertise Rogue One alongside it.
