Predictably Star Wars: The Force Awakens is currently on track to pass James Cameron’s CGI-laden, pseudo-animated film Avatar as the highest-grossing film of all time.

The Force Awakens hit theaters December 18, 2015 and mustered a record breaking $247 million at the domestic box office and $529 million globally in its opening weekend.

Thirty years after the defeat of the Galactic Empire, the galaxy faces a new threat from the evil Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and the First Order. When a defector named Finn crash-lands on a desert planet, he meets Rey (Daisy Ridley), a tough scavenger whose droid contains a top-secret map. Together, the young duo joins forces with Han Solo (Harrison Ford) to make sure the Resistance receives the intelligence concerning the whereabouts of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), the last of the Jedi Knights.
