“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” Passes $100M In Advance Tickets
Star Wars: The Force Awakens doesn't hit theaters until Friday, but is already a guaranteed smash at the box office.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, year-end holiday advance ticket sales for the J.J. Abrams-directed film has crossed $100 million in North America.
That includes a $50 million-$60 million haul in advance ticket sales for its opening weekend.
The report says that in recent days, theater owners have been adding screenings of the film to accommodate demand, though Disney insiders stress that there are still plenty of seats available over opening weekend.
The previous record-holder for advance ticket sales was The Dark Knight Rises in 2012 with $25 million. Sources say Force Awakens sales could even be north of $120 million.
