What’s Up With Star Wars? Well, The Force Awakens Just Made $2 Billion Worldwide
That little space film is certainly over achieving. It also earned over $900 million – the first to do that in North America.
Lets go back to bragging about the Billions thing! J.J. Abrams must be smiling, “The Force Awakens” is only the third movie in history to crack $2 billion. You know the other two, James Cameron’s “Avatar” and “Titanic.” “The Force Awakens” did it in 53 days.
The film has shattered tons of records since it’s December release including biggest opening weekend ($248 million), biggest opening day ($119.1 million) and biggest second weekend ($149.2 million).
“This is a historic moment for Star Wars, for Lucasfilm, and for Disney, and all of us here are extremely gratified.” says Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn.
