Star Wars: The Force Awakens Christmas Eve box office brings $27 million

Posted on

Lucasfilm

Even on Christmas Eve, there’s no stopping the awakening in the Force.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens earned another $27.6 million at the box office on Thursday, according to estimates from Disney.

Movie-going traditionally dips on Christmas Eve, but those numbers still helped bring the film’s domestic total to $391 million. After just one week in theaters, The Force Awakens has already become the No. 3 movie of 2015 domestically.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been continuously breaking records since its Dec. 18 release. Earlier this week, it became the fastest movie in history to hit $300 million, reaching that number in just five days (the previous record holder, Jurassic World, did it in eight).
