We know Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be huge, but exactly how big will it open? We'll know in a few days time, but no one will be surprised if it proves to be the largest opening weekend of all time. The current record-holder is Universal's Jurassic World, which opened in June of this year -- traditionally the time for big block blusters. Normally over the winter holidays there are four or five big movies and enough time for people to see a couple of them, but this year may see Star Wars roll over everything. And when it is all said and done, could this Star Wars be the highest-grossing film of all time? It depends if people will want to go to the theater to see it multiple times, as they did with Titanic and Avatar.
