The movie "Star Wars: Episode 7 - The Force Awakens" continues its triumphant march across the screens of North America. As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the picture chalked up another achievement - an absolute record in the Christmas box office.
On Friday, December 25, 2015, the movie grossed $ 49.3 million, double the 2009 record holder Sherlock Holmes. Cumulative home gross for the seventh episode exceeded $ 440 million. On the second weekend, the project could earn about $ 150 million, which will also be an absolute record. The previous one belonged to the movie "Jurassic World", which ended the second weekend with a score of $ 106 million.
Most likely, by December 28, 2015, Star Wars 7 will have an amount exceeding one billion dollars. It is worth noting that the project managed to achieve such an impressive result without the help of the Chinese rental, since it starts in China only in January 2016.
The Walt Disney Company is very optimistic about the movie's prospects in China, so almost all of the leading actors will be sent to the premiere. Experts expect Star Wars to earn at least $ 300 million in the Chinese box office.
