Star Wars: Episode 7 - The Force Awakens did manage to set an all-time record at the worldwide box office for its premiere weekend. According to the publication Deadline, the management of the Walt Disney company clarified that the picture earned "about 528 million dollars".
Thus, the previous record holder - "Jurassic World" moved to second place with a score of $ 524.9 million. Some analysts believe that after the final tally, the fees for the seventh episode may be even higher, since, according to unrevealed data, the project could earn about $ 250 million in North America by the end of the first weekend.
Recall that such an impressive result of "Star Wars 7", unlike its main competitor, was demonstrated without the help of the Chinese rental, since the picture starts in China on January 9, 2016.
Recall that key roles in the movie were played by Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Harrison Ford, Domhnall Gleason, Gwendoline Christie, Peter Mayhew, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega and other actors.
Most of them will take part in the creation of the eighth episode of "Star Wars", which will be presented to viewers in May 2017.
