Will “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” Break The All-Time Box Office Record? [POLL]
From Alderaan all the way to Tattooine, it looks like all the planets are about to align and "Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens" will become the biggest box office hit of 2015. The question is: Will it go on to become the highest grossing movie of all time?
The latest film in the legendary Star Wars franchise is finally in theaters this weekend and, unless you've been living under a moon rock, you know it is easily the most anticipated film of 2015 as promotion for the film started all the way back in 2014.
But a ton of promotion doesn't mean a movie is going to be good. In fact, expectations can be so high that it is nearly impossible to match them come movie time. Just ask the die-hard Star Wars fans how they feel about Episodes I (1999), II (2002) and III (2005).
The early buzz with "The Force Awakens", however, has been anything but negative from fans of all levels and ages. So far they are thrilled with the final product, which is another reason why this film has a starfighter's chance at becoming the biggest of all time. Another is the return of the original cast-members. Long-time fans who are now in their 40s, 50s, 60s and even 70s are sure to buy a ticket just to see Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher make their return to that familiar galaxy far, far away for the first time in over 30 decades.
If it is going to break the box office record, "Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens" will have to take down the epic James Cameron film "Avatar", which brought in a staggering $2,788,000 worldwide in 2009.
