Highest Grossing Domestic Film of All-Time! What Could It Be?

Words cannot describe how much I loved "The Force Awakens", but when you see these numbers that the film has produced it amazes everyone. I think breaking box office records in today's day and age could never have happened without the Fans of Star Wars and I mean the original (circa 1977), yes kids back in the 70's. Oh what time it was to be a kid and see Star Wars, you never saw anything like it and we wanted to be just like them. I know I did! Which character did you dress up Luke, Han, Leia? #StarWars#TheForceAwakens
