If anyone is in any doubt that Star Wars: The Force Awakens has reinvigorated the Star Wars franchise, well here it is.
The top domestic film of all time is Avatar.
“Star Wars” is barreling in to surpass it!!
For context, in 17 days, Avatar took $352,114,898 in the domestic market.
In the same amount of time, Star Wars has taken $740,265,583!!
The all time, worldwide box office chart is as follows….
1 = Avatar with $2,787,965,087
2 = Titanic with $2,186,772,302
3 = Jurassic World with $1,668,984,926
4 = The Avengers with $1,519,557,910
5 = Furious 7 with $1,515,047,671
and already at number 6 is Star Wars: The Force Awakens with $1,510,765,583
That’s over 1 BILLION in UK Pounds in just 17 days!!!
I’d say the franchise is well and truly safe.
