'Star Wars 7' achieves biggest opening of all time

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has already reached $1 billion at the box office, achieving the milestone in record time.
"The Force Awakens" accomplished the feat in just 11 days, beating previous record holder "Jurassic World," which did it in 13 days in June.

"Jurassic World" also had the benefit of record grosses in China.
The record is just the latest one to be toppled by the J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars" installment. It previously set opening weekend records with $248 million domestically and $525 million globally.
Another reason behind the massive achievement of the new star wars movie is fans repeatedly going to cinemas to watch a second time.
"It just connected me to X number of years back to dad. You know, it was my first movie that I went to see with him. He was reading the titles to me as they went by. I will probably get a hint of that every time I ever see a 'Star Wars' movie in the theatre. So yes, I want to go back to experience that again."
"I think it was one of those where there is so much in the movie that you need to see it again to actually understand fully the other movies as well, but just the humor in it. The one liners."
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is set 30 years after the "Return of Jedi".
It will premiere in China on January 9th.
