Star Wars: The Force Awakens is rousing up hardcore fans and regular movie goers alike! It's a phenomenon that people want to be a part of, as the entire Star Wars franchise is just so legendary.

What is even more legendary are the numbers Star Wars is raking in. The Force Awakens will be the first film to ever surpass $100 million in advanced ticket sales.

The film's opening weekend has accumulated around $50-$60 million alone.

These numbers are making my brain hurt!

I wouldn't be surprised if these numbers continue to rise, as the film still has two days until it hits theaters. Previously holding the record for advance ticket sales was The Dark Knight Rises with $25 million.

It is estimated that The Force Awakens could reach up to around $120 million.

If you haven't bought your Star Wars: The Force Awakens ticket yet, you still have time! It hits theaters December 18, 2015.

And don't worry, as Episodes VIII and IX are already scheduled and on their way.
