A Galactic Performance in Just 12 Days

 
Disney said Sunday that ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ breached the $1 billion mark around the world faster than any other film in history.
 
The sci-fi adventure movie reached the milestone 12 days after its global release. That is one day earlier than the previous record holder, Universal's "Jurassic World," which was released June 12, 2015.
 
Wow! Despite my little misgivings about the movie – if you have not read my own review, kindly check it out at this link http://helpvictor.blogspot.my/2015/12/swtfa-movie-review.html.
 
Having said that, the blockbuster movie has won massive accolades with fans and critics. It holds a 94% score (as of December 27, 2015) on review site RottenTomatoes.com and has even garnered some Oscar buzz.
 
You would have met BB-8, the Astromech droid from the movie. Ever wondered how it came about?
 
Here’s one theory:
 
 
Celtic maintained pole position in the Scottish Premiership table with a fiercely contested 2-2 draw against Heart of Midlothian Football Club.
 
The Scottish champs led twice through Nir Bitton (42) and Tom Rogic (70) but those goals were not enough to quell Hearts. Sam Nicholson equalized in the forty-fifth minute and then Osman Sow did the same in the ninetieth minute.
