Star Wars Reaches $1 Billion
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Well, that was fast. "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has reached the $1 billion mark at the box office. The 12-day journey to the $1 billion mark is the fastest trip to that plateau by any movie, beating the mark set in June by "Jurassic World." That movie took 13 days to reach the $1 billion mark. As for the weekly numbers, "The Force Awakens" has set the mark for best second-weekend earnings with $153.5 million. That dwarfs the rest of the week's releases — like the second-place finisher, "Daddy's Home" and "Joy," which took in $17.5 million.
