BOX OFFICE: THE FORCE AWAKENS Becomes The Highest Grossing STAR WARS Movie Of All-Time

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has now added even more to its incredible worldwide haul, turning the movie into the highest grossing instalment of the franchise to date. It's also entered the Top 10 biggest release of all-time, so hit the jump for details on where things stand...

Unless it had been met with overwhelmingly negative reviews from fans and critics alike, it was always pretty obvious that Star Wars: The Force Awakens would break all sorts of box office records. However, the movie is doing so quicker than anyone ever expected, and it's already become the highest grossing instalment in this beloved franchise to date, topping The Phantom Menace's haul of $1.027 billion with $1.16 billion (though with inflation taken into account, it hasn't beaten A New Hope). As of right now, the J.J. Abrams helmed release is still on track to beat Avatar's domestic record of $760 million, and many analysts remain convinced that it will have no problem sailing past $2 billion, even if it doesn't manage to reach $2.7 billion by the end of its run. As of right now, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the #4 movie of the year and the #10 movie of all-time, and it's going to keep on getting closer and closer to the top spot as the next few weeks go by.
