Star Wars: The Force Awakens smashes Spectre's UK box office record on opening day

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has enjoyed a record breaking first day in cinemas. 

The long-awaited blockbuster broke a record previously set by Spectre only a few weeks ago by taking £9.6 million on its opening day. This was a big increase from the latest James Bond movie, which took £6.3 million in box office receipts on its opening day back in October. 

Of the £9.6 million JJ Abrams' new epic earned, a full £2.4 million came from midnight screenings. 

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is in cinemas now and is available to pre-order on DVD and Blu-Ray on the right-hand side of the page.
