Movie Tickets Are Pricier, So Is 'Star Wars' Really Breaking Records?
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is breaking records right and left. But is it such a standout when you adjust for inflation?By Katie Link | January 5, 2016
Chances are you've heard of this little movie called "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," and you've probably heard it's breaking all sorts of records.
"Avatar" currently seems to be the film to beat. "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" will battle the sci-fi movie for the titles of top-grossing film domestically and worldwide. "Star Wars" only trails the domestic record by about $20 million, and that's after only a couple of weeks in theaters.
"The Force Awakens" will challenge the worldwide record when it hits theaters in China later this week.
