Though nothing will ever redeem it for its holiday special, Star Wars nonetheless had a pretty great Christmas. Over the holiday, The Force Awakens unsurprisingly retained its top spot at the box office, dropping less than 40% for a massive $153.5 million second weekend. While that gave the film the biggest second weekend ever, the bigger story was that, combined with international grosses, it has already made over a billion dollars in just ten days--the fastest that milestone has ever been reached, of course. In other words, hey!--Disney should make a Star Wars 2!
Here's your weekend box office:
1. Star Wars: The Force Awakens - $153.5 million
