Harrison Ford Almost Wasn't In "Star Wars: The Force Awakens"

With the amount of media blitz The Force Awakens has generated leading up to the premiere and how many talk shows JJ and Harrison have done, this is by far the best of the bunch. Pure gold.

Box Office Records broken

Here's a breakdown of the movie's historic ride so far:

Biggest Thursday night North America
Force Awakens amassed $57 million, easily passing the $43 million earned in previews by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 in July 2011.

Biggest Friday and biggest single day North America
The film took in $120.5 million, outpacing the $91 million earned by Deathly Hallows 2, the final title in the Harry Potter franchise.

Biggest domestic opening North America
Force Awakens is only the third movie in history to open north of $200 million. The other two are Jurassic World and fellow Disney release, Marvel's The Avengers ($207.4 million in 2011).

Biggest December Opening North America
The seventh film in the Star Wars series did nearly three times the business that The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey did in its opening weekend in mid-December 2012.

Biggest December Opening Global
The previous best was 2003's The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King ($250 million).

First movie to cross $100 million in one day North America
Force Awakens **** the $100 million mark less than 24 hours after it started rolling out in theaters at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Fastest movie to cross $200 million Global
The tentpole hit $250 million in worldwide ticket sales in only three days after beginning its rollout overseas on Wednesday.

Biggest location average for a wide release North America
Boasting a theater average of $57,568, Force Awakens wrested the record previously set by the final Harry Potter film ($38,672).

Record Imax Opening Global
Imax theaters took in $30.1 million in North America and $48 million worldwide after Abrams shot a key sequence that was on full display on Imax screens. Force Awakens stomped past Jurassic World ($44 million) and did nearly double the $25.2 million launch of Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Biggest Opening Weekends International
Force Awakens scored the biggest opening weekend in key markets including the U.K. ($48.9 million, four-day), Germany ($27.3 million), Australia ($18.9 million) and Russia ($12.3 million). It debuted at No. 1 in every market except for South Korea and Vietnam.

Biggest advance ticket sales North America
The movie racked up north of $100 million in advance ticket sales likely closer to $130 million before it even bowed, as first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

Boba Fett is a drummer

Any chance that Boba will step in for Neil Peart so that Rush can continue their domination of the galaxy?  ;D

Don't let the intentionally clickbait-y title fool you, this is ridiculously funny.

John Boyega's stock photos popped up online, and Uproxx has three of them up.  I can't tell if this is supposed to be for a business or a school catalog or what.

This picture's been making the rounds on the internet.  Thought it was funny enough to share.

Poe to the Rescue!


Cute and full of fun little gags.  And I think they got all the movie voices in there, but there aren't credits so I'm not 100% certain.  And hey, a new ship that I've never seen before.

Twisted Toonz performs "The Force Awakens"


These dudes ruined the original Star Wars for me... I'm curious to see what they do with the new flick.
