Star Wars: The Force Awakens is just days away from becoming the highest-grossing film ever in the UK and US

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has broken its fair share of records already, and now the film is just days away from becoming the highest-grossing film ever in the UK and US.


The sci-fi epic is on course to overtake current American record-holder Avatar, having already picked up $740.4m in the US.

Meanwhile, the film has taken £97.6m in the UK at last count, putting it just over £5m off ​James Bond Skyfall‘s record total.

The Force Awakens currently ranks as the sixth highest-grossing film in history worldwide with $1.5 billion, and should pass Furious 7 and The Avengers this week.

The movie will also get a boost when it opens in China later this month, which it would need to pass Avatar’s global record of $2.8 billion.

Elsewhere, The Force Awakens has broken the record for biggest single day in UK box office history and becoming the fastest movie to take $1 billion at the worldwide box office, reaching the goal after just 12 days of release.
