We Are Not Surprised!! - Records Fall As #STARWARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Posts Big

Those numbers are not shocking for this Star Wars Fan, I thought it would be even more - LOL. How about you?


 $238M Domestic, $517M Global Debut,

The Walt Disney Studios announced soon after the debut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens that it has set a new all-time domestic debut record with an estimated $238M. With a five-day international debut of $279M, the film has taken in $517M globally.

“Our sole focus has been creating a film that delivers that one-of-a-kind Star Wars experience, and director J.J. Abrams, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, and the Lucasfilm team have outdone themselves,” said Alan Horn, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios. “To all of the fans around the world who not only came out in Force to make this such an exciting and astronomical debut but who treated this film as their own and helped preserve the experience for their fellow fans by not spoiling it – thank you, we do.”

SO here are the NUMBERS - ON tHe Way  to this galactic launch, the film has smashed several all-time domestic box office records, including:

·       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).

Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted day-and-date internationally in nearly every market (except Greece and India, which open Dec. 24, and China, which opens Jan. 9) and set records in many. 


·       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.

The Force is strong with critics and audiences, whose enthusiastic reactions have powered a 95% Rotten Tomatoes score and an excellent A CinemaScore, with an A+ among women and younger audiences, for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

SO I'm thinking I wish the next one was coming out like next week. The cliffhanger at the end leaves me wanting more. I will however have to painfully wait and  go and see The Force AWAKENS AGAIN AND AGAIN, just to keep me going till the next chapter. Hurry up and write, film and release Episode 8 peeps.

This is one of my favorite pics of the cast
