The latest Star Wars film has taken $53m (£36.5m) in ticket sales on its first weekend in China - the country's highest ever opening weekend.

Globally, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has become the third most commercially successful film in history, according to the Walt Disney studio.

Titanic, released in 1997, is number two and 2009's Avatar is top, with a total box office take of $2.8bn.
