Friday, 08 January 2016 - 13:16
Star Wars: The Force Awakens has unseated Avatar to become the top-earning film of all time in North America.
The studio claims the JJ Abrams film has passed the 760.5 million dollars taken by Avatar over its lifetime, but has yet to give official figures.
Last month, Star Wars: The Force Awakens became the fastest film to take 1 billion dollars at the global box office.
But Avatar - released in 2009 - still holds the global record.
The James Cameron film took 2.8 billion dollars across the world, as compared to The Force Awakens worldwide earnings of 1.6 billion to date.
