Star Wars: The Force Awakens Clears $900 Million in America & $2 Billion Worldwide.

The Money Awakens

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has officially become the third film to make $2 billion worldwide, and the second film to make that much money in a single release. In the United States alone, it just crossed the $900 million mark (which will make it the first movie do accomplish such a feat).


From Entertainment Weekly:

“This is a historic moment for Star Wars, for Lucasfilm, and for Disney, and all of us here are extremely gratified to be a part of this journey with fans around the world who have made Star Wars: The Force Awakens such an extraordinary success,” Disney chairman Alan Horn said in a statement. “The film’s achievements are truly astounding, and it’s our great honor to relaunch this cinematic galaxy not only for all the devoted decades-long fans but for a new generation who will keep the Star Wars legacy alive for many years to come.”

The movie has made $2 billion in a mere 53 days worldwide, and it only took 50 of those days for the movie to reach $900 million in the United States. While attendance is winding down as the movie starts to leave theaters, that’s still a pretty mind-blowing accomplishment. Other illustrious financial accomplishments by the film include a $125 million run in China and a $600 million run in all of Europe.


It should also be worth noting that the Lucasfilm effectively finished what George Lucas started by means of making a Star Wars movie that outgrossed Titanic (or rather, Titanic‘s gross before it was re-released in 3-D). Perhaps if the movie is re-released a few decades from now, it could completely beat Titanic‘s record. And while it couldn’t reach Avatar‘s heights, it was a less expensive film to make, meaning that Lucasfilm will probably end up walking away with larger profits than Twentieth Century Fox did when merchandise sales are taken into account.
