Star Wars Forces Its Way to the Top in United Kingdom

December 18th, 2015

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Another day, another record for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This time it is the opening day record in the U.K., where the film earned $14.3 million. That’s right, the film earned more in the U.K. than it did in all 12 markets it opened in yesterday. Not only did The Force Awakens break the single-day record previously set by Spectre earlier this year, but analysts think it could double the current opening weekend record of $31.2 million, also held by Spectre. Of course, Spectre was also a Monday debut, so the comparisons are not perfect, but it does show just huge The Force Awakens will be.
