The force catapults ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ to record weekend box …

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Is The Movie The Series So Badly Needed. A gaggle of Stormtroopers and the droid R2-D2 were spotted in West Wing Friday, as the seat of US executive power succumbed to intergalactic-sized hype around the new blockbuster Star Wars movie. When the first trilogy began back in the late 70s, I was old enough to be wedded to the darker, moodier sci-fi of Solaris, Silent Running and Soylent Green, and young enough to believe that gave me the right to dismiss this latterday Buck Rogers nonsense out of hand. Last week, it was already handsomely in profit from its new range of toys and knick-knacks even before the massive two-hour commercial for them had come ...

Oh Shit, I’m a *Star Wars* Geek Again

Star Wars: The Force Awakens fans furious after movie screening suffers malfunction. Disney and JJ Abrmas went out of their way to prevent any Star Wars: The Force Awakening spoilers leaking onto the internet early, refusing to put the film forward for awards in order to avoid handing out sampler film DVDs to judges. While attending a midnight screening, likely in the hope of avoiding any spoilers in the coming days, some fans’ experiences were ruined after a malfunctioning projector skipped a huge segment of the film, revealing the ultimate twist prematurely. Check it out: Erik Melendez, a student at UCLA studying political science, posted the above video and this lament: “Projector ...

‘Star Wars’ Opens With Record-Breaking $238 Million Ticket Haul

A Darth Vader waffle maker? You really shouldn’t have…. Han Solo’s line in the new “Stars Wars” film could also apply to Walt Disney Co. and the team of filmmakers, marketers and distribution executives who delivered a record-breaking weekend debut, setting the stage for years of movies, merchandise and attractions tied to the most successful science-fiction franchise in history. “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” collected $238 million in U.S. and Canadian ticket sales, topping the $208.8 million hauled in by Universal Studios’ “Jurassic World” in June, Disney said Sunday in a statement.

German church hosts galactic service to celebrate Star Wars release

Berlin church celebrates Star Wars service. Protestant pastor Lucas Ludewig said he and fellow pastor Ulrike Garve wanted to show that “Star Wars” draws on religious imagery and “that the Bible and the Church are part of our culture.” With the film’s theme song — played on the church organ — still echoing around the church, the 30-year-old said the aim was to hold a service that wasn’t “too Christian or too Star Wars, but to find a good compromise.” BERLIN — A Berlin church celebrated a service with a Star Wars theme today (Dec 20), with lightsaber-wielding pastors preaching parallels between Christianity and the blockbuster movie series ...

Box Office: ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Headed for Record $50M-$55M Thursday-Night Opening.
