Star Wars: The Force Awakens The Highest Grossing Movie Of All TimeJanuary 7, 2016 / byTalha Masood / Categories : Movies and Tv, Star Wars
Big news today that Star Wars: The Force Awakens becomes the highest grossing movie of all time. That’s right just today it out-grossed Avatar and took it’s place in the records. Although The force awakens still remains number 4th highest grossing movie internationally but domestically it has overtaken the number one movie Avatar. This is such a happy, I’m so glad to see this amazing response from the fans and it also shows that fans and the general audience have accepted the next chapter in the franchise instead of diminishing it.
Star Wars official website says:
” Star Wars fans have kept a galaxy far, far away alive for close to 40 years. Without them, there is no Star Wars.
That’s why we are humbled and grateful to announce that, thanks to fans new and old, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now the highest grossing film of all-time at the domestic box office, surpassing Avatar’s $760.50 million record in just 20 days. The movie now holds the records for biggest opening day at the domestic box office ($119.1 million), biggest opening weekend at the domestic box office ($247.96 million), and biggest IMAX opening at the domestic box office ($30.1 million), among many others.
We are proud of these records, but know that they would not be possible without fans’ enthusiasm and continued support. We feel it here and it drives us every day, and it will continue to in the very bright future of Star Wars. There has indeed been an awakening — and it’s all thanks to you. “
