‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Breaks Tuesday Box Office Record

2 min read

Star Wars The Force Awakens HeaderAdd another box office record broken for the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which will give it plenty of  future PR when comparisons are made as other films attempt to break it.

After it’s big $247.9 million take this past weekend and a $40.1 million Monday take that broke that record, Tuesday’s final numbers arrived and the film did $37.3 million yesterday (which was when I got my second showing of it). That breaks the previous record of $35 million from The Amazing Spider-Man reboot from a few years ago that opened with the summer holiday.

The film has now cross the $300 million mark as well, making it the fastest to do that ever with five days compared to Jurassic World earlier this summer that took eight days to achieve it.

The film is in the 6th position for highest grossing so far this year (the chart below does not reflect the Tuesday numbers yet) and will easily move into the third place position by Christmas.
