“The Force” is still strong in the Philippines as “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is set to return to Philippine cinemas on January 8.

The seventh film of the epic saga, which continues to break box office records and raking record-high earnings, will return after Metro Manila Film Festival ends its run on January 7.


With just 19 days since it premiered, “Star Wars” has already earned $740.3 million in the United States, beating the box office grosses of  “Jurassic World” ($652.3 million) and “Titanic” ($658.7 million).

Disney has since announced that “Star Wars” has become its highest grossing film, trumping “The Avengers” which was shown in 2012.


The film is expected to become the highest grossing film ever when it opens in China on January 9.

James Cameron’s “Avatar” currently holds the title of being the highest grossing film ever with $2.7 billion earned worldwide in 2009. AJH
