But how high will the film go in America? With a $41 million weekend and clear signs that the film is slowing, it looks like The Force Awakens will be wrapping up its blockbuster run in the near future. And with competition from Ride Along 2 and 13 Hours next weekend, it may drop harder than expected. As of right now, The Force Awakens stands as the 15th highest grossing film in American history when adjusted for inflation. Over the frame, it passed Return of the Jedi, The Phantom Menace and Jurassic Park and it will soon topple Avatar, Ben-Hur and The Empire Strikes Back. This is especially impressive and depending on the legs over the course of January and February, The Force Awakens may or may not crack the prestigious top ten films of all time when adjusted for inflation chart. My bet is that it wraps up its run with around $925 million and an 11th place finish behind Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Any way you spin it, this is one ridiculously massive hit.
