Overseas, Force Awakens earned another $38.4 million for a foreign tally of $400.4 million and global haul of $765.9 million. At this pace, the movie will cross the $1 billion mark sometime over Christmas weekend, or in 12 days or less. The current record holder is Jurassic World (13 days), which had the benefit of opening day and date in China. Force Awakens doesn't open there until Jan. 9.
