BOX OFFICE: STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS On Track For Massive $275M Weekend

This movie is bigger than anyone ever expected! The latest projections peg Star Wars: The Force Awakens as being the first movie to make $100 million in a single day, while estimates for its opening weekend are now going as high as $275 million. Hit the jump for further details...

After breaking records with an amazing $57 million yesterday evening, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is currently on track to earn as much as $130 - 145 million today. That means it will become the first movie to earn upwards of $100 million in a single day, and distribution executives are reportedly in "complete awe" because of how well it's performing on an hour by hour basis. Oh, and did you think Jurassic World's opening weekend record of $208.8 million was impressive?

Well, the Force wasn't anywhere near as stong with that as it is Star Wars: The Force Awakens because current projections point to an overall weekend haul of between $250 - 275 million. It may even go higher, but like Disney (who are simply projecting a $200 million opening), it's best to keep expectations in check for the time being. Is it going to top Avatar? That's the question everyone wants to know right now, but we're just going to have to wait and see. What do you guys think?
