The newest film in the Stars Wars franchise has set a box office record for an opening weekend in the United States and Canada.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens generated $238 million in ticket sales since its release Thursday.
Worldwide sales brought in $517 million.
The figures shatter previous records set by Jurassic World, the fourth film in the Jurassic Park saga, which opened to $208 million in North American sales earlier this year.
The Force Awakens, an intergalactic story of good versus evil, is the seventh installment in the epic science-fiction franchise created by George Lucas in 1977.
Disney bought producer Lucasfilm for $4 billion in 2012.
