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".

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
