[ # ] Star Wars used the force to break a lot of Box Office records!
December 20th, 2015 under Star Wars

The force was very strong with Star Wars: The Force Awakens this weekend. How strong? It broke so many Box Office records, I can’t even count then all. Or lazy I am!

Here they are:
United States:
· Biggest Thursday preview gross with $57M.
· Biggest Friday and biggest single-day gross with $120.5M.
· First film ever to post a single day over $100M.
· Fastest film to $100M and $200M.
· Biggest December debut (nearly 3 times previous record of $84.6M).
· Biggest IMAX Thursday night preview ($5.7M), single-day ($14M, Friday), and weekend ($30.1M).
· Highest theater average for a wide release ($57,568)

· Biggest opening weekend of all time in UK (4-day), Australia, Russia, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Austria, Poland (3-day), Denmark (5-day), Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, Croatia, Ukraine, Iceland, Serbia, New Zealand. Second biggest opening weekend in France, Belgium, Israel, Chile.
· Biggest IMAX global debut of $48M.

Remember this is only the opening weekend, imagine how many more records it is going to destroy the longer it is out. I don’t know anyone who has hated it and that includes fans and non-fans alike. I am sure many people are going to see it over and over again while it is in the theaters for the next several months and that will help make it even more money than its predecessors. Maybe even combined.
