Bookmaker William Hill has predicted that Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be the highest grossing movie of 2015, outmuscling the forthcoming instalments of both the Avengers and James Bond franchises.

In its rundown of the biggest films of the year the bookmaker makes the forthcoming Disney film, directed by JJ Abrams, a huge odds-on favourite to be the most successful of the year. The other contenders are Avengers: Age of Ultron which will be the 4/1 outsider ahead of Jurassic World at 8/1 with Spectre, the new 007 film coming in fourth with odds of 9/1.

William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Crunchsports.com: “After a slow year for blockbusters in 2014, it looks as though 2015 could be the best ever year for movies.”

Last year, Credit Suisse’s Michael Senn predicted that the film would take $1.2bn at the box office, StarWars7News.com reports. This week, Cowan & Co. projected the exact same figure. But FBR Capital Markets goes further and says the film would likely take in $700m domestically and another $1bn overseas.

Some analysts say that the hotly anticipated film may even outperform those expectations, and could go on to be the highest grossing film of all time. To do so it would have to top James Cameron’s Avatar, which made $2.8bn when it was released in 2009.
