Star Wars: The Force Awakens is Fandango's biggest selling movie of all time

New, 9 comments

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has already broken a few records, including making $100 million before the film was even released, and now it's added one more trophy to its shelf.

According to Fandango, one of the leading ticket selling websites, The Force Awakens has also just become the site's biggest selling movie of all time.

Variety reported that while Fandango couldn't release exact numbers on just how many were sold, tickets have been bought into early 2016, covering the majority of the holiday period.

Tickets are still available for screenings, with multiple theaters running the movie on upwards of 10 screens to accommodate the heavy amount of traffic the movie is expected to bring in.

Industry analysts have pretty much determined at this point that The Force Awakens is en route to beating Jurassic World's record, which made $204 million during its opening weekend debut.

The seventh installment in the Star Wars franchise technically opens tomorrow, but screenings for the film will begin later today.
