Star Wars Force Awakens"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is flying through the box office at hyperspace-level speed.

The movie already set records for biggest domestic weekend ever and biggest Monday ever. Now, it's also got the record for biggest Tuesday ever, and the fastest movie to cross the $300 million mark. It took the latest "Star Wars" film just five days to do so, beating out the previous record holder, "Jurassic World," which needed eight days.

"The Force Awakens" raked in $37.3 million on Tuesday, and now has a global tally of $689.4 million. And the money-making extravaganza is far from over: Fandango estimates Friday's sales will top all past Christmas Day totals, and MovieTickets.com says "Star Wars" accounts for 83 percent of its Friday sales.

It could be a historic Christmas weekend at the box office. As Deadline notes, the last time Christmas was on a Friday, movies including "Avatar," "Sherlock Holmes," and "It's Complicated" made over $280 million total.

It should be a merry, Force-filled Christmas, indeed.
