'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Beats 'Titanic' And 'Jurassic World' At Domestic Box Office: 'Avatar' Next?

Close

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has been crashing through records ever since it first came out on Dec. 18.

Of late, the movie has made its way past "Titanic" to become the second highest-grossing movie of all time in the United States, sitting at a pretty hefty $686.4 million.

Of course, the only reason "Titanic" wasn't dethroned from second place is the fact that it got a 3D reissue in 2012, earning it an extra $58 million in the United States. Without that sum, Marvel's "The Avengers" and "Jurassic World" would have both passed it. Currently "Avatar" is sitting in the top spot; however, it's looking more and more like "Star Wars" will surpass the film at some point in the near future. To do so, "Star Wars" would need to move past the $760 million mark hit by "Avatar."

Worldwide, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has hit a massive $1.3 billion, making it the seventh highest-grossing film ever.

The movie, directed by J.J. Abrams, is one of the big reasons that the North American box office was able to reach the $11 billion mark in 2015, a feat that was announced on Dec. 29. It was also announced that "Star Wars" had reached $600 million faster than any other film in history.

According to Box Office Mojo, "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace," and the first "Star Wars" movie are both also in the top 10 highest-grossing films of all time domestically, sitting at seventh and eighth place, respectively.
