'The Force Awakens' Passes 'Avatar' to Become Highest Grossing Film in North America

Many predicted this would happen, and now Star Wars: The Force Awakens has surpassed Avatar as the highest grossing film of all time in North America.  As of Tuesday, The Force Awakens has made $758.2 million domestically and by the end of today is expected to have passed Avatar's $760.2 million.

That being said, The Force Awakens still has a long way to go before it passes Avatar's international box office total of $2.78 billion (The Force Awakens currently sits at $1.56 billion worldwide) or the all time adjusted for inflation record of Gone With the Wind of $3.44 billion.

That being said, this is still cause for celebration for Star Wars.  It's always great to see a Star Wars film as #1 in anything.  Congrats to JJ Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy, and the entire cast and crew of the film on all their success!

How many times have you seen The Force Awakens so far?  Let us know in the comments.
