'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Records - See the List!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has done the unthinkable… it has shattered the all time domestic box office record set by Avatar to become North America’s top grossing movie ever. Now, let’s take a look at some more records the movie has broken!

The movie broke the record on Wednesday afternoon (January 6) in just 20 days of release. The movie has now grossed over $760.5 million, which was what Avatar made in its full run plus its re-release.

The Force Awakens, which stars a hot young cast alongside vets like Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher, has broken a ton of other records as well, like biggest opening weekend ever, biggest opening day, and fastest to reach $100 million.

There’s no stopping Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which has made over $1.5 billion worldwide since its December 16 global debut. The movie still hasn’t opened in China, the second biggest movie market in the world.

Carrie Fisher Tells Body Shamers to 'Blow Us'

Carrie Fisher has responded to criticisms of her appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The 59-year-old actress took to Twitter on Monday (December 28) to set the record straight about her body in the new film.

“Please stop debating about whether OR not I aged well,” she wrote. “Unfortunately it hurts all 3 of my feelings. My BODY hasn’t aged as well as I have. Blow us.”

Carrie also called her body her “brain bag,” and retweeted a follower who wrote, “Men don’t age better than women, they’re just allowed to age.”

Earlier in the month, Carrie told Good Housekeeping that she was pressured to lose 35 pounds for the movie.

“I’m in a business where the only thing that matters is weight and appearance,” she said. “That is so messed up.”
