Star Wars: The Force Awakens has already made more than $100 million

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is sure to break tons of records when it officially opens on Friday, but it just managed to surpass every film in history when it comes to pre-sale tickets.

The film has already made more than $100 million in sales, according to The Hollywood Reporter, with more people likely to scrounge up last minute tickets before the movie opens.

Of the $100 million The Force Awakens has already made, approximately $60 million of that will be made based on opening day and opening weekend tickets alone.

Before The Force Awakens broke the record, Warner Bros.' held the record for The Dark Knight Rises, which made $25 million in advance ticket sales. A total of $75 million less than what The Force Awakens has already made, and that's not even the final figure.

It was previously reported by various tracking services that The Force Awakens is en route to debut anywhere between $180 and $220 million during its opening weekend. If it does more than $208 million, it will pass Jurassic World for the biggest domestic debut in history. The worldwide record holder, however, is still James Cameron's Avatar, which debuted to $232 million.
