Read an article the other day on Deadline.com which said that currency exchange is poor at the moment because the dollar is strong. If The Force Awakens was released the same time at Avatar it would be at $2.5 billion.
I have no idea if that's true or how that is calculated. With 3D and IMAX, marathons etc, warping box office receipts, I think it would be better to gage the impact of a film by admissions instead.
You see, it's interesting to monitor this, so you can get some kind of understanding why loose red Snaggletooths go for £50 on auctions.

No Oscars tonight, not surprised really! :-/

However, despite being miles ahead of TFA over the first week of release, both here and in the US, TFA's small drops have allowed it to reel Endgame in and it's now comfortably ahead in the US. TFA held onto its second weekend crown and the second week dailies are way ahead of Endgame's. EG's 3rd Friday was $16m, whereas TFA's was $34.4. Not sure about here, as box office numbers are more difficult to get hold of, but doubt very much now that EG will overtake TFA.
It just shows what an epic box office run TFA had- $936.6m US and £124m UK will take a lot of beating. Eventually, inflation will allow something to overtake it though. EPIV equates to around $1.4 billion in the US when adjusted for inflation!
