As it nears Avatar‘s all-time domestic box office record, Star Wars: The Force Awakens continues blasting its way up the global chart. With Friday’s figures factored in, the global cume on the sci-fi saga’s continuation is now $1.39B. That pushed it past Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 to snag the No. 7 slot at the all-time worldwide box office. But it won’t rest there for long. Today SWTFA will overtake Avengers: Age Of Ultron to become the No. 3 movie of 2015 and the No. 6 film ever globally.
New Year’s Day grosses at the international box office yesterday came to $25M. That boosted the offshore cume to $704.2M. While New Year’s Day was softer abroad than domestic, the Friday-to-Friday overseas drop was 9%. Conversely, the jump from New Year’s Eve to New Year’s Day was 66%. MORE
