'Force Awakens' passes $1B at global box office

Star Wars: The Force Awakens blasted into box-office hyperspace its second weekend, pulling in an additional $153.5 million for No. 1 and crossing $1 billion worldwide, according to tracking firm Rentrak.

Force handily surpasses the second-week take of Jurassic World ($106.6 million) in June for the biggest second weekend ever. Last week, the sci-fi blockbuster stomped on Jurassic's record-breaking $208.8 million opening with a historic $238 million (the biggest first weekend ever).
