Will Star Wars top a billion?

Will Star Wars top a billion?
It looks like it is slowing down:

http://www.imdb.com/chart/

At $914.84 million, it still has a long way to go.
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

I assume you mean US - only box office? It's already passed $2 billion worldwide. It might get there eventually, or stop just short.

Who cares? While I do value entertainment as part of the human condition, I think it is far more important what we spend on real war vs what we spend on ending pollution and global poverty.

It would be the first film to gross $1 billion in US domestic ticket sales.  Does it matter?  No, of course not!  IMHO, I think that it was the worst Star Wars ever made; even the second prequel was better, at least in my opinion.  The star-sucking planet was just too much for me to take seriously; I remember sitting in the theater, thinking, "WTF?!"

I agree, if you take away the fact that the Rey was less annoying than either versions of anakin skywalker, and Daisy Ridley had far more Chrisma than either Jake Lloyd or Hayden Christiansen, the force awakens would by most other measures I care about be much worse than any of the sequels.
