Star Wars: The Force Awakens has become the fastest movie to take $1 billion at the global box office.

The seventh episode of the Star Wars franchise achieved the feat in 12 days, beating the previous record of 13 days set by Jurassic World in June.

However, while Jurassic World had the benefit of record takings in China over the period, The Force Awakens has yet to open there.

J.J. Abrams’ movie took $153.5 million in the US in its second weekend, bringing its total domestic haul to $544.6 million.

The weekend’s other releases included the Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg comedy Daddy’s Home, which took $35 million.

Jennifer Lawrence’s Joy – which sees the actress reunite with Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell for the biopic about the creator of the Miracle Mop – took $17.5 million.

Point Break, a remake of the 1991 Kathryn Bigelow movie starring Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze, flopped however with audiences.

The movie, which had a reported budget of $105 million, took just $10.2 million across 2.910 venues.

In limited release, Leonardo DiCaprio’s film The Revenant earned $471,000 from four locations, averaging $117,750 per screen.


Ted 2 has failed to knock Jurassic World off the top of the US and Canada box office chart, opening in third place behind Pixar’s Inside Out.

The comedy sequel, which stars Mark Wahlberg and a teddy bear voiced by Seth MacFarlane, made $32.9 million between Friday and Sunday, according to studio estimates.

Jurassic World and Inside Out made $54.2 million and $52.1 million respectively over the same period.

Canine drama Max, another new release, made its bow-wow in fourth place.

Max, about a military dog afflicted with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), made $12.2 million in its first three days in North American cinemas.Ted 2 box office debut

Ted 2‘s opening weekend tally is no disgrace for a film rated R, which requires under 17s to be accompanied by an adult parent or guardian.

Yet the Universal release had been expected to perform better given the success of its 2012 predecessor, which took almost $550 million at the worldwide box office.

“We could have had a higher gross, but we get the gross we get,” said Universal’s Nick Carpou.

“It was a very competitive marketplace this weekend.”

Jurassic World, which was also produced by Universal Pictures, has now spent three weekends as the US and Canada’s No 1 movie.

The fourth installment in the resurrected dinosaur franchise has now made more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office.

  3. Ted 2 – $32.9 million

  5. Spy – $7.8 million
  6. San Andreas – $5.3 million
  7. Dope – $2.9 million
  8. Insidious: Chapter 3 – $2 million
  9. Mad Max: Fury Road – $1.7 million
  10. Avengers: Age of Ultron – $1.6 million


Jurassic World and Pixar’s Inside Out battled for this weekend’s box office supremacy.

Jurassic World roared into the lead with $102 million, making it only the second film after The Avengers to make $100 million in two separate weekends.

Inside Out, which unfolds largely inside the mind of a young girl, came second with $91 million.

It is the biggest opening weekend for a non-sequel in box office history.

The record was previously held by Avatar, which took $77 million when it debuted in 2009.Inside Out box office

However, Inside Out‘s second place opening breaks Pixar’s perfect run at the top of the charts. Starting with 1995’s Toy Story, all 14 of the studio’s previous films had opened at No 1.

“Inside Out would have been number one in any other weekend,” said Phil Contrino, vice president of BoxOffice.com.

“At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter. Being number one is overrated.”

Disney – which owns the Pixar studio – noted that Frozen had also debuted at No 2, before going on to become Disney’s biggest-ever animated release with a global haul of nearly $1.3 billion.

Inside Out was judged to be a tough sell. A genre-defying story of a girl’s inner turmoil, it portrays her emotions as characters – Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust – who live inside her mind.

Meanwhile, Jurassic World broke another record – it is now the highest-earning film in the dinosaur franchise. It has made $398 million in just two weeks, surpassing the $357 million made by the original Jurassic Park in 1993.

Jurassic World, aka Jurassic Park IV: The Extinction has become the first film to take more than $500 million at the box office on its opening weekend.

The fourth installment in the Jurassic Park series was the most popular screening in all 66 countries where it was released.

Jurassic World made $204.6million in the US, according to Exhibitor Relations.

The movie took $100 million only in China as part of the record global total of $511.8 million.

The Universal Pictures release had the second-highest grossing opening weekend in the US.

The record is held by Marvel’s The Avengers, which took $207.4 million in 2012.Jurassic World record opening weekend

Jurassic World was co-produced by Steven Spielberg, who directed the first two films in the series, and directed by Colin Trevorrow.

It stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.

Jeff Bock, a box office analyst with Exhibitor Relations, told Variety.com: “People should call dinosaurs the original superheroes. They are just as big as Iron Man or Superman or Batman right now.”

Jurassic Park was a major worldwide success in 1993, taking more than $1 billion globally.

It was followed by The Lost World: Jurassic Park in 1997 and Jurassic Park III in 2001.

Jurassic Park III got poor reviews and made far less than its predecessors.

Analysts say the success of Jurassic World will vindicate the decision to reboot the franchise for a new generation of dinosaur fans.
