The Force Awakens is Completely Killing It at the Box Office

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, one of my favorite movies of the year, has been in theaters for 15 days and is already the second highest domestic grossing film of all time. $687 million in just over 2 weeks is absolutely insane! Avatar still holds the top spot, but it's only a little ahead at $760 million.

To put this number in perspective, it took Avatar 10 weeks in theaters to get to where Star Wars is right now. Some projections have it overtaking Avatar's total by next weekend.

Taking Avatar's worldwide gross is going to be a little tougher, as it currently sits at 7th in that list. Avatar brought in 70% of its total gross overseas and Star Wars is split basically 50/50 at this point.
