There’s a chance that Star Wars: The Force Awakens will become the highest grossing film in the history of the American box office today. It still has $1.2 billion to go if it’s going to dethrone Avatar from the top of the international charts, but that that record is not beyond this movie, which has spent the past few weeks shattering expectations left and right.
