1.5 billion in 3 weeks and first award nomination for Episode VII
With a third record breaking weekend, The Force Awakens has surpassed both Jurassic World and Titanic to become the number two all time box office champ. However that title will be short lived as analysts predict it will only be a few more days before it overtakes Avatar for the number one spot.
What? Did you expect different outcome? Avatar is the last one that stands before Star Wars The Force Awakens, but it will likely fall soon. I contributed to this with ONLY 2 visits so far, but 3rd one will be next Tuesday, most likely. How about your view count? :)
On another note, the American Cinema Editors (ACE) have nominated Star Wars: The Force Awakens for best film editing. The film is going up against other nominees such as Mad Max: Fury Road, The Martian The Revenant, and Sicario. The 66th Eddie Awards show is January 29th.
