By now it shouldn't probably come as a surprise. Stars Wars: The Force Awakens, the seventh chapter, formally episode, of one of history's greatest sagas, has broken box office records over the weekend since it premiered. And it wasn't just in the US alone. The film raked in hundreds millions of dollars across the globe, save in some countries where the film was met with strong local competition or was completely delayed to January. The figures mean a great deal not just to fans but to the prospect of Disney spinning out even more content and products in the years to come.
