What's up guys and gals,
Star Wars: The Force Awakens has started to become what some would call an "unstoppable force". The film is shattering records left and right. We are still four weeks away from the release of the film and incredibly it has already sold more than $50 million in ticket pre-sales.
According to THR:
With a month left to go, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has racked up more than $50 million in advance ticket sales in North America. That's double the previous record set by The Dark Knight Rises in 2012 with $25 million. Imax alone accounts for a third of all ticket sales, according to sources. Force Awakens, looking to reboot George Lucas' Star Wars series, begins rolling out the evening of Dec. 17 in North America. Overseas, it opens day-and-date in much of the world.
These numbers are crazy when you actually think about them. No film has ever made this type of money this far out from its release date. Many estimates have the film on pace to open around the $230 million range opening weekend and high estimates around $300 million. The record holder right now is this year's Jurassic World with $209 million.
Leave us your thoughts on these crazy numbers below in the comments section.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18th.
