Star Wars Soars Past $1billon

Star Wars, The Force Awakens, has taken $1bn at the box office in record time.
Walt Disney’s juggernaut crossed the mark in just 12 days – beating Jurassic World, which took 13 days to accomplish the feat over the summer.
Jurassic World also had the benefit of record box office receipts in China.
The Force Awakens is not set to open in China – the world’s second-largest movie market – until 9 January.
