The Force Awakens brings in $57 million from Thursday's screenings

Back in 2011, HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS - PART 2 broke the record for the most money made in "evening previews" with $43.5 million. This probably comes as no surprise, but STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS demolished that domestic record, bringing in $57 million last night! As Box Office Mojo also points out, FORCE AWAKENS broke the previous Thursday record set by REVENGE OF THE SITH, which was $50 million.

If you want to jump into international numbers, AWAKENS has brought in $72.7 million elsewhere. That's a combined total of $130 million! I'd say now is as good a time as any to head on over to our latest movie poll and cast your vote as to how much FORCE AWAKENS will make internationally this weekend!

Suffice it to say that by all accounts, FORCE AWAKENS delivers exactly the kind of adventure fans have been looking for, while paving the way for some new characters to inhabit the STAR WARS universe. You can check out our spoiler-free review of the film here before you grab your tickets and (hopefully) a good seat in theaters to witness one of the most satisfying films of the year!
