“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” continues to break box office records and has just reached a very important milestone in making over $1 billion in just 12 days. So will this movie break Avatar’s record of $2,787,965,087? It still has a few hurdles ahead of it but it’s on a really good pace. Keep in mind that “The Force Awakens” still hasn’t opened in China, which helped Avatar pull in $204 million.

Right now, “The Force Awakens” is ranked #15 in the Top Worldwide Grossing Movies Of All Time! “The Force Awakens” can only go up from here, but how far up? Do you think it will break Avatar’s record?
