Up to $610,000.00 globally.

Spider-Man 2 2004 record falls for Monday's US domestic.

UK Monday record falls.

Soon it will be as much as VC Jawas.

Yeh! Star Wars is back and there's more to come. I only wish people had embraced Dredd this much so we could have had more there as well. Can't win 'em all.

Dredd is the film that deserves a sequel out of them all :)

Totally agree! Although I liked that low budget remake more than the Stalone version; felt more gritty and Dredd like. I don't care which way it goes in the future, just give me more Dredd!

Great to see TFA do so well. Don't know why it's important to me. Endorsement of a personal love of the film or just thrilled SW is well and truly back in headlines for all the right reasons? Either way, fucking rocks.

Fastest ever to 300m in the States- reached by midday yesterday! 5 days, beating JW's record of 8. Will be tough to beat the Tuesday record though- Amazing Spiderman's opening day made 35m. Fingers crossed!
Collecting SW since 1980.

I knew you'd say that :lol:

Love all things Dredd, comics and modern version mainly, not the Sly version so much but I didn't think it was terrible. The Angel gang were pretty awesome.

That new Dredd film was so underrated. It was excellent.

The Amazing Spider-Man record on its opening day is crushed by TFA.

Surly this can't keep going.

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” continues to crush records, picking up a smashing $37.3 million on Tuesday from the domestic box office. That passes the previous high-water mark of $35 million set by “The Amazing Spider-Man” in 2012.

With a North American haul of $325.4 million, “The Force Awakens” has now out-paced “Jurassic World” as the fastest film to cross $300 million, accomplishing in five days what it took the other film to achieve in eight.

“The Force Awakens'” massive domestic earnings were augmented by another $41.3 million that the film netted at the foreign box office on Tuesday, powering its global haul to $689.4 million worldwide. It will pass $700 million tomorrow and should move past $1 billion by the end of the week.

Over the weekend, the sci-fi epic scored a $248 million domestic debut and a $529 million global launch. That shot past the records set this summer by “Jurassic World” ($208.8 million domestic, $524.9 million worldwide bow).

While I don't care so much about how much the movie will bring in in terms of money, I do care that it means lots of new star wars movies, tv shows, games and toys.
Will media be saturated? That remains to be seen, but I have my fingers crossed some of it will be excellent!

Yes. Its great to see SW in the public domain again and in a postive way too. Long may it continue and hopefully it will breed a whole new generation of fans.
