Holy shit, 1.3b already? To think there were some people saying it wouldn't reach 2b. :P



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

I want it to pass Avatar, but I don't think it will, I'm guessing it will top off at around 2.4-2.5 billion, hopefully I'm wrong though.

In my opinion, the movie is highly overated. It doesn't deserve to pass Avatar. At least Avatar did something groundbreaking  with its engrossing world  and incredible effects. This movie had a crap villain and pretty much recycled A New Hope. Not deserving of the records it's breaking. 



lolz, Ferngully called and it said, "James Cameron recycled my plot and the events of Titanic!"





The Force is strong in this movie.

“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

Well it almost passed JW and Titanic's grand total domestically before the year was over. It will pass both of those easily once today's numbers come in.



Dang it, it ended the year like 500k short of Jurassic World. I can definetly see a 100M weekend at least wich would put FA a little bit ahead of Avatar.



Even though it was just a little short of Jurassic World, it's still amazing it grossed in 14 days what it took JW 23 weeks.

These numbers are only estimates, so things could change coming Monday when we get the actuals :)


Yeah, A 100M weekend seems very likely now :)

TFA is only 10.5 behind Avatar in the UK in local currency, yet it trails it by 26 million in USD currency, the exchange rate is what will likely keep it from passing Avatar.

 

Not really. TFA gets the advantage of China being a bigger market and a favorable exchange rate compared to 2009 in that country. Not to mention the higher ticket prices. And in other countries, like Australia, TFA is tracking behind Avatar by quite a lot (in local currency).
