The new Star Wars film has taken an estimated $517m globally in three days - putting it just behind Jurassic World's $525m tally. While it fail to top Jurassic World's global opening figures, analysts believe the space saga has a huge potential to become the biggest-selling movie of all time, especially since Jurassic World's figure has taken into account of their opening in China which was over the same weekend where it opened everywhere else. Star Wars: The Force Awakens, on the other hand will not debut in the world's second biggest cinema-going territory until 9 January.
With the trio stars from the original trilogy, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill to reprise their Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker roles alongside the younger franchise newcomers, the movie that is set to "a galaxy far, far away" some 30 years on from the action of 1983's Return of the Jedi had been receiving plenty of good reviews and feedbacks. Fans are loving it and the movie is also attracting the younger generation.
The force it strong with Disney on this one it seems....
