The Star Wars Saga started way back in 1983 is ready to make its mark once again with its latest episode ‘The Force Awakens’. The latest film of the Star Wars franchise ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ is going to be released this December on the 18th. Directed and written by J. J. Abrams, the movie is going to be a huge blockbuster. According to the numbers presented by Morgan Stanley, The Force Awakens is set to touch the two billion dollars mark.
Yes, you heard it right! $ 2 billion business is what the movies creators are aiming for and in a year full of highly earning blockbusters this seems very possible. If the movie is able to achieve what it is set for, this would make it the 3rd highest grossing movie of all time behind Avatar and Titanic. With Jurassic World making a great impact worldwide with an enormous business of 1 billion dollars throughout the world and still counting, Star Wars franchise is all set to shatter the records.
This year has seen immensely earning blockbusters like Fast and Furious 7, Jurassic World and Avengers: Age of Ultron might just see a great end to this amazing year with a boom. Set to be released on 18th December, Star Wars: The Force Awakens might earn even $ 2.25 billion which would without a doubt, place it in the second rank in the list of the highest earning movies of all time behind Avatar leaving behind Titanic and Jurassic World and the like.
According to Morgan Stanley’s estimates the movie would do a business of 1.95 billion dollars with $ 1.3 billion sales abroad and $ 650 million in the United States. This estimate might be a bit low as analysts estimate a business of more than $ 2 billion to $ 2.25 billion. If Star Wars: The Force Awakens is able to generate an amount of $ 2.25 billion, $ 1.5 billion would be international sales whereas domestic theatre would earn around $ 750 million. The ratio of domestic of international sales has increased for Star Wars: The Force Awakens since the international sales have doubled for this episode of Star Wars as compared to the previous editions.
The franchise seems highly confident about what they are thinking. Their predictions might turn true: the analysts are also expecting a business of around 2 billion dollars or even more than that. The action, adventure, fantasy film The Force Awakes will see the original cast of the trilogy made in the 1970s return. In addition to be seen among the list of highest grossing films of all time, the movie is expected to be a huge success in terms of providing entertainment of the highest quality. Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher are heard to return as Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia. Chewbacca (Han’s Wookie friend) and other important characters like the robots C3PO and R2D2 will be performed by the original cast from the seventies trilogy of the Star Wars.
