THANK YOU: STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS BECOMES THE #1 FILM OF ALL-TIME IN THE US
A SPECIAL MESSAGE TO FANS AS STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS HITS A MAJOR MILESTONE.

Star Wars fans have kept a galaxy far, far away alive for close to 40 years. Without them, there is no Star Wars.

That’s why we are humbled and grateful to announce that, thanks to fans new and old, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now the highest grossing film of all-time at the domestic box office, surpassing Avatar’s $760.50 million record in just 20 days. The movie also holds the records for biggest opening day at the domestic box office ($119.1 million), biggest opening weekend at the domestic box office ($247.96 million), and biggest IMAX opening at the domestic box office ($30.1 million), among many others.

We are proud of these records, but know that they would not be possible without fans’ enthusiasm and continued support. We feel it here and it drives us every day, and it will continue to in the very bright future of Star Wars. There has indeed been an awakening — and it’s all thanks to you.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens to Lose 312 Screens This Weekend

In its fifth weekend, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will become a bit less ubiquitous in theaters. For its first month in theaters, the film has stayed in the approximately 4100 theaters it debuted in. This weekend, it will lose 312 of those screens, or about 7.6% of its initial bow, according to Exhibitor Relations, a box office tracker.

That shouldn't slow the movie down too much, though, as it continues to speed toward one billion dollars in both the domestic and international markets. The film is still on pace to surpass the $2.187 billion worldwide cumulative gross of Titanic, though it may take a few more strong weekends to do it.

This weekend sees Ride Along 2, Universal's PG-13 comedy as the widest new release, but even with Star Wars' dip in total screens, Ride Along won't be anywhere close to as many theaters. Lionsgate's animated comedy Norm of the North and Paramount/Michael Bay's Benghazi flick 13 Hours also see wide releases this weekend.

The biggest movie of all time, and the major characters are a strong female, African American male, Hispanic male, someone struggling with mental illness, three older characters, and a droid. THAT'S SO AWESOME!!!!!!! <3
