Also we are talking about just U.S. Domestic opening weekend (Friday to Sunday).
Star Wars: The Force Awakes is hitting theatres is just over a week. There are lots of questions surrounding it but one of the biggest is how much will it make opening weekend?
Here at MMT we have differing opinions. But it's pretty clear it will break some records. But by how much. For reference here are the Biggest Opening Weekends of all time. Notice only 2 movies have ever broke the $200 million mark.
Jurassic World (2015) - $208,806,270
The Avengers (2012)- $207,438,708
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) - $191,271,109
Iron Man 3 (2013) - $174,144,585
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 (2011) - $169,189,427
Also something to think about is that December has never had a movie open with more than $100 million. Here are the biggest opening weekends in December.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) - $84,617,303
I am Legend (2007) - $77,211,321
Avatar (2009) - $77,025,481
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013)- $73,645,197
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003) - $72,629,713
With that info let us know below what you think The Force Awakens will make. And if you plan on seeing it opening weekend.
