The newly premiered Star Wars: The Force Awakens is on target for a record-breaking opening weekend shattering box office numbers to rake in $250 million just in North America.
However, the film has already passed that mark in global sales with a domestic Friday gross of $120.5 million and $129.5 million in international revenues, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The seventh Star Wars movie is set to beat out this past summer’s Jurassic World to take the title of highest-grossing debut of all time, easily surpassing the Universal film’s $208 million three-day haul.
Deadline.com said Saturday that the Disney film had grossed $100 million in just 21 hours by 1 p.m. on Friday. It’s Thursday night previews take of $57 million eclipsed Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2 that had held the record for the biggest preview Thursday at $43.5 million.
