Those two people living in a hole who thought The Force Awakens won’t break records probably shouldn’t look at the Thursday night numbers.
The new Star Wars movie made $57 million, which broke the record set by Harry Potter And The Deathly force awakensHallows â€“ Part 2 in 2011. However it needs to be noted that the Harry Potter movie came out in the middle of summer, which is a time more suited to big records being set. For The Force Awakens to break that the week before Christmas shows how many records this movie is going to blast away.
The next record to fall is the highest Friday of all time followed by the opening weekend record that Jurassic World set this summer.
