Star Wars: The Force Awakens is already making bank before it's even hitting cinemas. Variety is reporting that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is already the biggest pre-seller in the history of the Fandango, beating out the first Hunger Games movie.

It's being reported that Star Wars: The Force Awakens will open with around $208 million in ticket sales, beating out Jurassic World's massive debut. Variety added that "no film has ever opened to more than $100 million in December and the Christmas movie-going season is competitive one. At the very least, "The Force Awakens" seems destined to eclipse the $85 million bow of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" to set a new benchmark for December openings".
