I hate to say it, but it might not pass Titanic. At least it will get past 2 billion.

Titanic needed a re-release to get to that number. It already has passed Titanic's original run.

It's going to be in theaters at least another 90 days its chances of passing Titanic are still pretty good should be close to 2 billion by next Monday and after that it has more then two month to make a little over $186 million more.

Yup, I am aware, I was talking about its re-release, hopefully it still passes it though.

I hope it does, but it is slowing down, especially in China, and plus it will lose its IMAX screends come Friday. It will be close, hopefully it does grab that second spot.

Very happy to see this will pass 2BN. With the unfavourable exchange rates it's actually done better than it looks!



Even if it misses out on the second spot what TFA is did is more impressive.  Titanic was in theaters for almost a entire year (287 days original run plus 65 days in its re release) even if TFA has a really long run its theatrical run will be a lot shorter then Titanic's.  Anything over 90 days is considered a long theatrical run now but in the 90s and before the 90s it was pretty common for some movies to be in theaters for over 6 month.



Wow, Chinese legs are pretty dissapointing :-/

Both things are achievements in their own rights. They are the only two movies since E.T. in 1982 to sell over 100 Million tickets.  Titanic for longevity that while seen a few times before will probably never be seen again and TFA for how massive it was in such a short time . As of now on box office mojo it's hit half of Gone with the Winds total ticket sales in just 38 days and is at 11 on the all time list adjusted for inflation and it still has time to get quite a bit more. In fact I fully expect it to pass Titanic's world wide total while the pace is slowing down, that's far from stopping and it's not like Disney is unaware of it, they will do what they need to should it look like it might not make it.



It's crossed 2 billion dollars! Where are the updates!
