‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Surpassing ‘Avatar,’ ‘Titanic’ Box Office

The epic space opera film of director: J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Force Awakens (the top film at the box office in 2015), goes beyond the $900 million mark.

The epic space opera film of director: J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Force Awakens (the top film at the box office in 2015), goes beyond the $900 million mark. Disney established the truth that the seventh installment in the Star Wars franchise has fastened the adequate company in the ultra-VIP area that is the $2 billion club.

The latest installment of Star Wars which hit North American theaters on December 18, is the highest-grossing motion picture in domestic box office history, having passed the previous record of director James Cameron’s epic science fiction film “Avatar” with $760.5 million after 20 days in movie houses. According to Entertainment Weekly, late last week, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens persisted its distance from the North American pack, as it officially surpassed the $900 million domestic mark on Friday.

Alan Horn, Disney chairman, said in a statement, “This is a historic moment for ‘Star Wars,’ for Lucasfilm, and for Disney, and all of us here are extremely satisfied to be a part of this journey.”

The Force Awakens is anticipated to surpass Cameron’s other major money-maker, the epic romantic disaster film Titanic, which currently has $2.19 billion in the box office. It is, on the other hand, a long way to go to beat Avatar’s $2.79 billion in worldwide box office.

As the film The Force Awakens is heading into its eighth weekend, the flick remains booked at more than 2,000 theaters, a level Jurassic World and director Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age Of Ultron submerged below during the same time. In addition, the follow-up to “The Force Awakens” is slated to fire up theaters in December 2017.
