Globally, Star Wars is now the third highest grossing worldwide release of all-time with over $1.73 billion. Based on international numbers alone, it is now the seventh highest grossing release with $921.4 million, just behind Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Star Wars the Force Awakens taking first place for the fourth weekend in a row with an estimated $41.6 million. With that it has become the first film to gross over $800 million domestically with a massive $812 million. Add to that it just brought in an estimated $53 million in its first two days in China
In North America, Star Wars the Force Awakens should get over $1 billion. In China, it looks good for $300-400 million.
The strong opening in China seems to assure at least $2.3 billion in global box office. This would put it over the movie Titanic.
If Star Wars has solid repeat viewing then it should become the non-inflation adjusted world box office champ by knocking off Avatar $2.788 billion.
