Everyone is seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens!
Today, The Walt Disney Company reported that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is expected to pull in 900 million dollars domestic today and 2 billion dollars global in a few days. This is a very large amount of money. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the first film in history to reach the 900 million dollar milestone. This is great news for Disney, J.J. Abrams, and fans of the franchise. What’s even more incredible is that it only took 50 days for Star Wars to reach this milestone.
Here are some of the records Star Wars: The Force Awakens has broken:
- Biggest opening day domestically ($119.1 million)
- Biggest opening week domestically ($390.8 million)
- Fastest film to $1B globally (12 days)
- Biggest film of all time in the U.S and the U.K.
Star Wars: The force Awakens is doing really well in the U.S. and abroad. It has gone well over its $200 million dollar budget. The fact that Star Wars is doing so well proves that movies are more capable than ever of bringing in revenue. Or perhaps this merely shows the degree of economic inflation over the past few years.
