Star Wars: The Force Awakens has smashed the record for the biggest box office opening weekend in North America.
With ticket sales of $348m NZD it has beaten the previous record of $305m NZD, set by Jurassic World in June.
The new Star Wars film has been a hit with both critics and audiences and around the world took in a staggering $756m NZD in just three days.
Movie experts say the space saga could become the biggest-selling movie of all time.
The latest film returns to “a galaxy far, far away” some 30 years on from the action of 1983’s Return of the Jedi.
