By Aatif Sulleyman on at

As you’ve no doubt already heard, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has smashed global box office figures, with tickets sales of $529 million (£355 million). It’s taken the crown off Jurassic World, which hit the $525 million (£353 million) mark back in the summer.


The Tyrannosaurus, Velociraptors and Indominus Rex all appear to be taking the news well, with Jurassic World producer Frank Marshall this week tweeting a picture of a T-Rex rather skilfully draping a gold medal around the neck of BB-8. The cute little droid must have been terrified, but at least we finally know what the tyrant lizard's weird little arms were used for. [GamesRadar+]
