After logging the biggest global opening ever this weekend with $529M, and adding $41.7M from its international plays on Monday, Star Wars: The Force Awakens stayed on steady course Tuesday. The estimated offshore take for the day is $41.3M, lifting the international total to $364M. The global cume, along with Tuesday’s domestic haul, is now $689.4M.
At this rate, $750M could be around the corner tomorrow. What’s more, SWTFA should hit $1B over the weekend. For reference, JJ Abrams’ saga continuation began international rollout on Wednesday December 16. Jurassic World, currently the fastest movie to climb to the $1B mark, did it in 13 days this summer.
The best offshore play continues to be the UK with $68.2M, followed by Germany with $36.1M and France at $31.6M. The rest of the Top 10 markets are: Australia ($25.3M), Japan ($18.3M), Russia ($14M), Mexico ($13.9M), Italy ($11.4M), Spain ($11.4M) and Brazil ($10.9M).
