The flick has also scored $250 million globally since it opened internationally on Wednesday.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the reboot is projected to gross $180 million to $220 million domestically through Sunday, playing in 4,134 theaters in North America, marking it the widest December release of all time. If the space epic sells more than $208.8 million in tickets, it will break the record for the biggest domestic debut weekend. That title is currently held by Jurassic World, which only hit theaters this past June.
With the new Star Wars soaring through the box office, Sisters and Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip -- which also opened in theaters on Friday -- are definitely feeling the Force of their biggest competitor. Sisters, starring Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, grossed a mere $4.9 million, with Alvin following close behind with $4.1 million.
Earlier this week, Poehler made an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, where she discussed her thoughts on having her comedy open opposite this year's most highly-anticipated film.
"I don't care," she said bluntly. "I don't care about Star Wars and I never f***ing did!"
