Disney is predicting around $170 million for the opening weekend, with other estimates having it open to somewhere between $185 million and $210 million. The biggest December opener in the United States until now is The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which pulled in $85 million, less than half of the lower estimates for The Force Awakens.

But, The Force Awakens is now going to be fighting huge openings like Jurassic World, which stomped away with $208.8 million.
