Star Wars: The Force Awakens is proving to be out of this world, breaking another industry record with a $100 million-plus Friday — the first triple-digit-million day in box office history. Insiders tell TheWarp that the tally could reach as high as $130 million by the time Friday night becomes Saturday morning.
This tops the previous $91.1 million record held by "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" in July 2011. "The Force Awakens" is also on track to blow past the opening weekend record set by "Jurassic World" in June.
Because "The Force Awakens" is entering uncharted box office territory, typical moviegoing patterns make it difficult to forecast where the film's opening weekend tally may wind up. After all, there were long lines for "Star Wars" at 5:15 a.m. outside of the Chinese Theater in Hollywood.Brandonbaker01 (talk) 04:11, January 6, 2016 (UTC)
