So Long Spidey, Star Wars Box Office Haul is Out of This World
Star Wars: The Force Awakens demolished Spider-Man 2's decade long record for the biggest Monday at the box office. The final tally is right around $40 million, topping Spiderman's $27.7 million haul. With that number, Disney's behemoth became the fastest movie to $250 million. The $40 million mark outstripped the early estimates from Monday afternoon by a full 10 million dollars, so estimates continue to be conservative, then blown away.
