BB-8 box office

Apparently, there’s nothing more powerful in the box-office universe than the Force.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the seventh movie in the popular sci-fi franchise, put a Sith chokehold on cinema screens this weekend and broke every major opening record.

The film, which introduced Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac as new heroes in a galaxy far, far away, tallied $238 million for the weekend, according to studio estimates. It blows up the record of $208.8 million set in June by Jurassic World.
