Star Wars Makes Biggest Global Debut Ever

In spite of what I wrote about Star Wars: The Force Awakens – you may read it at this link – the movie has already made its biggest global debut ever.

And the Disney blockbuster is on pace to be the highest-grossing film of all time globally. Bigger than Jurassic World, bigger than Avatar!  

As at Wednesday, the seventh film in the space opera saga has collected global box office receipts totaling $765.9 million worldwide.

This has emboldened film analysts to project it may be the first $3 billion movie ever! Wow!
[Note: Disney spent $4.05 billion in 2012 to acquire LucasFilm, the creator of the “Star Wars” and “Indiana Jones” franchises].
Anyway, for those who can’t get enough of Star Wars, check out the video that is Star Wars-themed:
The German supermarket chain, Kaufland, released a charming Christmas commercial about a young Star Wars fan who finds true love when a new girl moves in next door. The young man works up the courage to dress as a Stormtrooper and then take a love letter to the girl's home. She returns the favor by getting into costume as Princess Leia, with her dog as Chewbacca, and dropping a gift off at the boy’s house.
