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!
