Here’s a bit of news that may shock the nine of you out there. Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be the highest grossing movie of all time for the domestic box office. Not bad for a film that was released on December 18, 2015. On Tuesday the film earned $8 million, making the domestic total at $758.2 million, according to THR. Avatar’s domestic box office total is $760.5 million. The Force Awakens will surpass Avatar’s record on Wednesday. To make this even more impressive, Avatar was in theaters for 7 months along with a rerelease.

As for the worldwide box office numbers, it still is not there yet. Avatar’s worldwide box office numbers is at $2.78 billion. The Force Awakens is currently at $1.56 billion. China hasn’t released the film yet, so expect bigger numbers once it’s in Chinese theaters on January 9th.

Do you think Star Wars: The Force Awakes will be able to beat out Avatar for the highest-grossing box office movie worldwide?
