Star Wars: The Force Awakens becomes fastest to take $1bn
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens has become the fastest film to take $1bn (£674m) at the global box office. JJ Abrams’ film achieved the feat in 12 days, beating the previous record of 13 days set by Jurassic World in June. But while Jurassic World had the benefit of record takings in China over the period, The Force Awakens has yet to open there.”
I really enjoyed The Force Awakens (I’ve seen it twice). My only hope for Episode VIII is that the First Order come up with a new weapon as four Death Star like weapons is pushing it.
