Earlier this month, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” became the biggest opening in movie history bringing in an estimated $238 million in the U.S. allowing the film to fly past the opening weekend record held by Universal’s “Jurassic World,” which made $208.8 million on the weekend it opened in June.
However, this past weekend, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has reached $1 billion at the box office, reaching the milestone with record-setting hyper speed.
The feat was accomplished in just 12 days. The previous movie to reach $1 billion the fastest was Universal’s “Jurassic World,” which did it in 13 days in June. “Jurassic World” also had the benefit of record grosses in China, where as Star Wars doesn’t open in the world’s second-largest movie market until Jan. 9th.
