Box Office Records broken

Here's a breakdown of the movie's historic ride so far:

Biggest Thursday night North America
Force Awakens amassed $57 million, easily passing the $43 million earned in previews by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 in July 2011.

Biggest Friday and biggest single day North America
The film took in $120.5 million, outpacing the $91 million earned by Deathly Hallows 2, the final title in the Harry Potter franchise.

Biggest domestic opening North America
Force Awakens is only the third movie in history to open north of $200 million. The other two are Jurassic World and fellow Disney release, Marvel's The Avengers ($207.4 million in 2011).

Biggest December Opening North America
The seventh film in the Star Wars series did nearly three times the business that The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey did in its opening weekend in mid-December 2012.

Biggest December Opening Global
The previous best was 2003's The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King ($250 million).

First movie to cross $100 million in one day North America
Force Awakens **** the $100 million mark less than 24 hours after it started rolling out in theaters at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Fastest movie to cross $200 million Global
The tentpole hit $250 million in worldwide ticket sales in only three days after beginning its rollout overseas on Wednesday.

Biggest location average for a wide release North America
Boasting a theater average of $57,568, Force Awakens wrested the record previously set by the final Harry Potter film ($38,672).

Record Imax Opening Global
Imax theaters took in $30.1 million in North America and $48 million worldwide after Abrams shot a key sequence that was on full display on Imax screens. Force Awakens stomped past Jurassic World ($44 million) and did nearly double the $25.2 million launch of Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Biggest Opening Weekends International
Force Awakens scored the biggest opening weekend in key markets including the U.K. ($48.9 million, four-day), Germany ($27.3 million), Australia ($18.9 million) and Russia ($12.3 million). It debuted at No. 1 in every market except for South Korea and Vietnam.

Biggest advance ticket sales North America
The movie racked up north of $100 million in advance ticket sales likely closer to $130 million before it even bowed, as first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
