The seventh installment in the franchise has officially surpassed Marvel's The Avengers as Disney's highest grossing movie domestically, raking in $629 million.
In comparison, The Avengers made $623.4 million during its run in theaters and profits from The Force Awakens are only going to increase with the New Year holiday.
Globally, The Force Awakens has made $1.29 billion, and according to analysts, could be a contender to replace Avatar as the highest grossing film ever. Avatar currently holds the record with a whopping $2.7 billion.
The Force Awakens just recently opened in China, and considering the size of that potential market, should be crossing the $2 billion mark soon.
