'Star Wars' Easily Breaks Christmas Day Box Office Record!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens continues to smash box office records a week into its stunning box office run.

The film has achieved the biggest Christmas day gross of all time with an estimated $40 million on Friday. It is on track to take in $140 million for its second weekend in release, which will beat the record for biggest second weekend ever, according to Variety.

The previous Christmas day record was held by Sherlock Holmes with $24.6 million and the previous second weekend record was held by Jurassic World with $106 million.

In other box office news, Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell‘s Daddy’s Home and Jennifer Lawrence‘s Joy are both opening strong in their first weekends.

Daddy’s Home is expected to take in around $30 million for the weekend while Joy will likely top $20 million, more than what was originally expected for both. Will Smith‘s Concussion is expected to bring in around $10 million for the weekend.
