The latest Star Wars movie might break enough records to become the biggest record-holding movie ever.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has already smashed the opening day record at the box office in the North America, making 120-and-a-half million dollars.

The record was previously held by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, which made 91.1-million on opening day.

Walt Disney is projecting a domestic weekend total of around 220-million, which would crush the record 208-million held by Jurassic Park.

And not only is the movie playing at more than four-thousand, one-hundred theatres in North America alone, which is the widest December release ever, it's also trodden all over The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which previously held the top opening for the month at 84.6 million.
