‘Star Wars’ Blasts Past ‘Iron Man 3’ at International Box Office

Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has passed a trio of titles — “Iron Man 3,” “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” and “Skyfall” — to take the 11th spot on the all-time international box office chart.

Disney made the announcement Thursday, a day after it trumpeted that the seventh “Star Wars” film had set a new record as the top domestic movie of all time, topping the $760.5 million record set by “Avatar.”

“The Force Awakens” took in $6.2 million domestically on Wednesday, its 20th day of release, for a total of $764.4 million. The international gross grew by $13.1 million Wednesday to push the total to $812.2 million — $6 million ahead of “Iron Man 3” and $10 million behind “Minions” for the 10th spot.

The worldwide total has hit $1.576 billion — just $100 million short of matching “Jurassic World” for third place on the worldwide chart. “Avatar” sit at the top with $2.79 billion, followed by “Titanic” at $2.19 billion.

“The Force Awakens,” starring Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Harrison Ford, should see a major boost on Saturday when it opens in China, the second-largest moviegoing market in the world. Top international grosses have come from the U.K. at $150.5 million and Germany at $87 million.
