J.J. Abrams' record-shattering Star Wars: The Force Awakens has blasted past $1 billion globally faster than any film in history, as well as leading the biggest Christmas weekend ever at the North American box office with a stunning $153.5 million for an early domestic haul of $544.6 million.

The Disney and Lucasfilm tentpole crossed $1 billion on Sunday, its 12th day in release. Jurassic World, which had the benefit of opening day-and-date in China in June, was the previous record-holder (13 days). Force Awakens also snatched the record for biggest second weekend fromJurassic World, which earned $106 million domestically in its sophomore outing.

"The speed with which records are falling is a testament to the audience broadening out. And you're seeing extraordinary repeat business," said Disney distribution chief Dave Hollis. "We know anecdotally there are people who are seeing the movie three and four times. Everybody wants to be part of something that has become a cultural phenomenon."
