“A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…” And the mystery of Star Wars begins… You feel the familiar excitement of big screen and you are sitting comfortably in the cinema chair dipping into the famous sentence of one of the best movies ever made!
If there is a phenomenon in a world of movies worth mentioning it is certainly the phenomenon of Star Wars. For every film lover out there, some very well known facts include that there are two trilogies of Star Wars, the Original trilogy and the later one, with movies made from 1999 to 2005. The six movies from these two trilogies generated a combined box office revenue of 4.38 billion dollars which makes the Star Wars saga the fifth highest grossing film series. But, that is not the only fascinating thing! If we are talking about the Star Wars franchise, the worth of this “Most successful film merchandising franchise” proclaimed by the Guinness World Records is estimated to the fantastic 30.7 billion dollars in the year 2012. The franchise comprises not only the revenue of the movies but also the profits from books, television series, computer and video games as well as comic books.
So, there is no wonder when we look to the newest data about the latest movie from the Star Wars series: The Force Awakens (2015). This movie threatens to shake the thrones of some very well known blockbusters such as “Jurassic World” ($652.3 million) and “Titanic” ($658.7 million). It actually became the second highest earner of all times with the generated revenue of 740.3 million dollars in 19 days of release.
The only movie that still holds the crown is “Avatar” but maybe not for long. If we look at the time that took the “Avatar” to reach the figure of 700 million dollars (72 days) we can see that Star wars – the Force Awakens did that in only 16 days! “Avatar” Earned 760.5 millions of dollars in gross but the new Star Wars movie can certainly surpass this figure since the opening in China is on January the 9th which is a huge market by itself.
