'Star Wars' Breaks Opening Day Record with $120.5 Million

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has officially broken the opening day box office record with a gross of $120.5 million on Friday (December 18).

The film brought in $57 million from Thursday night previews, which is included in the full Friday gross. It is predicted that the movie will make $240-$245 million for the opening weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The previous opening day record was held by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, which made $91 million on its first day back in July 2011. The Force Awakens easily beat that record and it will also break the opening weekend record, currently held by Jurassic World with $208.8 million.

It was also announced that Star Wars: The Force Awakens has crossed the $250 million mark at the global box office in just three days as some countries got the movie a little earlier.

    This film was utter bs, other than it providing a nostalgic trip down memory lane.

    I can’t believe how lazy Abrams is to rehash every plot detail from “A New Hope”, from the bad guys chasing a droid holding secret information on down to the destruction of another death star by the rebellion. All the action scenes and such keep you engaged, but when the film is over you realize you’ve been totally had. Worse, he goes way over with the PC and emasculates every male character in the film including solo himself to empower the female leads. It’s ridiculous.

    I wanted this film to be in the original star wars style, not a cheaper version of the original friggin movie. Lame.

    JJ if your going do reporting at get your facts right.

    Star Wars on Thursdays did all- day marathons , 7 pm and midnight shows to get the 57 million total Deathy Hollow 2 ONLY had midnights shows.

    To compare the two isn’t accurate without content.

    People really such sheep, all run out to see the lame movie, just PC propaganda.


    Badly made, dumb British propatainment import movie with bogus criminal box office media accounting and reviews supported by usual multi-account comment trolls praising and protecting it. This junk got old years ago.
