Star Wars: The Force Awakens overtakes Avatar’s $761 million

January 6th, 2016

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

We don't have the final Wednesday numbers, but it was announced that Star Wars: The Force Awakens has overtaken Avatar to become the All-Time Domestic Box Office Champ. This is far from the end for the film, as it is poised to reach $800 million over the weekend and it has $900 million domestically within its sights. The film hasn't entered the top ten on the All-Time International Box Office, but will continue to climb that chart as well. So while the number of stories we do for The Force Awakens will slow down, there's still plenty of newsworthy events ahead. And of course, we will track its daily numbers on the box office section of the site until it is out of theaters entirely.
