'Star Wars' climbing movie ranks
LOS ANGELES - "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has marched confidently into the new year, raking in an additional $88.3 million and topping the box office for a third week, according to studio estimates Sunday.

The top domestic film is still "Avatar" with a $760.5 million lifetime domestic gross.
