It's really doing great. At the very least it's tracking ahead of Jurassic World which means it will at least take the #3 spot. I'm hopeful it can take down Titanic as well, and taking down Avatar would be truly amazing.



Around the Network

this movie will have no legs
after 1.5b and the china release, we can expect a heavy decline

let's see if star wars can come close to titanic.



With the Avatar sequels finally in pre-production, do you think they'l retake the box office throne if The Force Awakens steals it?

There is no way Star Wars will out-gross Avatar.

I am expecting todays numbers to be around $26-28M

With 2nd weekend at $155-60M, it will have crossed 548M by Sunday a little less than estimated $170M by industry/studios due to competition from Joy (Jennifer Lawrence) and Daddy's home(Mark Wahlberg).

So $153M it is and almost as much as predicted. These would be the estimates as of now. Final values by tomorrow could be little more.

Yeah, I am expecting 2-3M more tomorrow :)



Mr. Cameron has a way of having insane legs for his movies. I don't think Star Wars will top Avatar but maybe Titanic. Well deserved either way.



Box Office Mojo just updated their records list, Star Wars took several more records from Jurassic World, bumping it from the #2 record holder to the #6 record holder:

Thanks, I just updated the list ;)



Titanic is bigger than Avatar when you adjust for inflation.

Anyways I think this kind of redeems the Star Wars franchise ... I said it even waaaaay back in 1999, at least domestically IMO Episode I should have beat Titanic, but it was simply too bad of a movie.

The prequels are fortunate they had the hook of "we gotta see Darth Vader" that kept people coming back.

Now we are seeing what Star Wars can do when it has the feel/tone/human element of the original trilogy. Box office records falling right and left.
