Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now the highest-grossing film in U.S. history. In just 20 days, it’s surpassed the $760.5 million James Cameron’s Avatar grossed in 34 weeks, but now it sets its sights on the seemingly insurmountable $2.79 billion international gross of Avatar. As of January 4, it had made $1.54 billion, but its release in China isn’t until January 9.
