In only 20 days, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has surpassed “Avatar” as the highest-grossing movie of all time in the US, but that’s hardly the only record it holds less than a month after its opening.
Over the past few weeks, it’s seemed like the latest movie in the franchise has shattered box-office records on a daily basis.
Here we’ve compiled some of the biggest titles the film now has.

The historic weekend for 'The Force Awakens' ended with it taking in the biggest opening weekend of all time ($247.966 million).
That Sunday also saw the film rake in $60.55 million, giving it the highest-earning Sunday ever. Followed by Monday ($40.1 million) and Tuesday ($37.3 million).
On December 27, the film became the fastest to surpass $1 billion globally (12 days) -- and it's not even out in China yet.
Then on January 6, it surpassed the $760.5 million mark earned by 'Avatar' to become the highest-grossing movie of all time in the US. All in a remarkable 20 days.
