The year’s biggest movie is breaking records for theater’s biggest screens.

Imax (IMAX) ticket sales for Star Wars: The Force Awakens topped $106 million in just 12 days, setting a new high bar for the company. The achievement far surpasses the record-setting pace of this summer’s Jurassic World, which took 18 days to top $100 million.

That’s the second Imax record for The Force Awakens, and more could still fall. In its opening weekend, the film had the biggest debut in Imax’s history, taking in $48 million on Imax screens globally (with $30 million in the U.S.)

What’s worthy of note is Jurassic World set its record with box office revenues with China included. The Force Awakens won’t see Imax income from that country until Jan. 9.

Momentum doesn’t appear to be slowing for the film, either. Imax says The Force Awakens averaged $48,000 per screen in the U.S. on its second weekend. That brought its domestic total to $70 million in just 11 days. James Cameron’s Avatar, by way of comparison, took 30 days to reach that same benchmark

“After achieving its historic opening weekend at the global box office, Star Wars: The Force Awakens continues to thrill audiences and break records in Imax theatres worldwide,” said Greg Foster, CEO of Imax Entertainment. “We are extremely proud of our contribution to this monumental release, as well as the future Star Wars installments.”

The Imax record wasn’t the only one The Force Awakens secured in its first 12 days. The film has topped $1 billion in global ticket sales for all theaters—making it the fastest to reach that mark.
