Thirty-five years after Ridley Scott rewrote the science fiction genre with his rainy, grainy, grimy vision of a dystopian future this monumental, contemplative, elegiac movie arrives as a perfect bookend, following an unexpected but ultimately satisfying story arc.
Daisy Ridley was moved by a sombre and poignant speech Harrison Ford delivered on the last day of filming STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens shattered box office records upon its debut becoming the biggest film of all time in UK with a current box office total of over £122.66million plus a total of $2.05 billion worldwide.
The force continues to be strong for the UK and Ireland with record breaking takings over the weekend for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The film enjoyed not only the biggest opening day of all time but also the biggest 4 day opening weekend of all time.
Some films come with hype, some come with trepidation, and those rare few come with a mixture of the two. Star Wars started back in 1977 when George Lucas unexpectedly (to both he and the cast and crew) helmed what would become the first film of a juggernaut franchise. Star Wars changed the way movies are sold and how they can create a culture.
