And there it is…all the anticipation apparently paid off as Star Wars: The Force Awakens opened to absolutely mammoth numbers this past weekend, shattering the box office records in the process. Here’s a list of the records broken:

Highest Opening Thursday$57M (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 – $37M)
Highest Opening Day (Thurs/Fri) – $120.5M (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 – $91M)
Highest Opening Weekend EVER – $238M (Jurassic World – $208.8M)
Highest December Opening
 – $238M (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – $84.6M)

All. Time. That’s where this movie is. All-time. And it’s just the beginning, as the Star Wars movies will continue to release at a rapid rate of once a year if Disney has their way about it. Such a good time to be a movie fan!
