One of the most common reactions after seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters was to go back and rewatch the original trilogy again. Part of that is nostalgia, and part of that is that The Force Awakens was, for better or worse, a rehash of a lot of similar plot points from A New Hope...
Star Wars: The Force Awakens had a lasting impact on pop culture in many ways. And now, according to a new report, it also has had an impact on family culture as well. In the months since The Force Awakens opened in theaters babies named Kylo and Rey have spiked dramatically, leaving us all to wonder, What kind of father would name his son Kylo...
Whether you’re buying a hard copy of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on DVD or Blu-ray, or instead opting for a digital copy via iTunes, you want to know what else you’re getting for your hard-earned money. Yes, you get a copy of the movie, but about the special features? While Lucasfilm has yet to officially confirm what will be included on the DVD or Blu-ray copies, a Swedish retailer has posted the full set of extras on their pre-order site, giving us a glimpse of what to expect.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set to hit DVD and Blu-ray on April 5, but if you can’t wait that long, we’ve got good news. Like many big Hollywood releases, Star Wars is coming to iTunes early. You’ll be able to download The Force Awakens on March 15 with special features, including seven new deleted scenes.
Nobody really knows what’s going on with Disney and Lucasfilm’s reported reboot of the Indiana Jones franchise. They say they want to do it, we know they want to do it because they paid $3 billion for this stuff, but Steven Spielberg says there’s no way he’d recast Harrison Ford. So while they figure all that out, there’s this easter egg in Star Wars: The Force Awakens to keep all the Indiana Jones fans satisfied. You probably didn’t catch it the first time around, but we’re here to help you out.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is still playing in movie theaters (and still making lots of money), but if you’re among those who are eager to get a copy to watch and rewatch in the comforts of your own home, you perhaps got an e-mail this weekend that got you excited.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens wasn’t going to reign atop the box office forever. Something was going to take it down sooner or later and we’ll just be honest — we expected it would take a little longer than this. At the same time, anyone who thought that Ride Along 2 wouldn’t perform well has a short-term or poor memory, as the first film was a gigantic hit this time last year. An Ice Cube and Kevin Hart buddy cop comedy dethroned the biggest movie in the history of the U.S. box office from the top of the charts and it’s not that surprising.
If you were one of the fans disappointed by Maz Kanata’s limited role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, then we have good and bad news for you. The good news is that Lupita Nyong’o’s wizened old alien pirate is as much of a badass as you suspected. The bad news is that the scene in which she showed off her very particular set of skills was left on the cutting room floor. Silver lining: it could be one of the deleted scenes that shows up on The Force Awakens Blu-ray.
In addition to the other box office records it’s already broken, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is on the verge of topping Avatar as the highest-grossing film of all time, worldwide. But the franchise isn’t the only thing breaking box office records — so is one of its stars. Thanks to the huge success of The Force Awakens, Harrison Ford is now the highest-grossing actor in box office history…in America, anyway.
As was widely expected, Star Wars: The Force Awakens passed Avatar as the highest grossing movie of all-time on Wednesday morning. It was a record many, including George Lucas, thought would never be broken; The Force Awakens did it in just 20 da
