‘Star Wars’ Speeds Past ‘Avengers,’ ‘Furious 7’ at Worldwide Box Office

Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is now the fourth highest-grossing film at the worldwide box office, speeding past “Furious 7” and “Marvel’s The Avengers.”

The seventh “Star Wars” movie has hauled $1.54 billion worldwide, topping “Furious 7” at $1.515 billion and “Marvel’s The Avengers” at $1.52 billion.

The space saga took in $8 million domestically and $14.5 million internationally on Monday. It was the lowest U.S. daily gross for Disney’s blockbuster since it opened on Dec. 18.

The domestic total for “The Force Awakens” has hit $750.2 million, trailing “Avatar” by $10.3 million for the tile of biggest film of all time. Should the movie perform similarly in coming days, the record would fall on Wednesday.

“The Force Awakens” has earned $786.1 million at international markets in the 20 days since its Dec. 16 launch. That total should see a major boost on Saturday, when it opens in China.

Box office analysts have forecasted that “The Force Awakens” could overtake the final three films on the list — “Avatar” at $2.89 billion, “Titanic” at $2.19 billion and “Jurassic World” at $1.67 billion.
