‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ is a box office smash with $250 million in global sales

In a turn of events that shouldn’t surprise anyone, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is already setting box office records. Directed by JJ Abrams, the new Star Wars film appears to be resonating with fans in a way that the often-maligned prequels did not. Suffice it to say, Disney at this point is essentially just printing money.

What critics said about the original ‘Star Wars’ movie back in 1977

What critics said about the original ‘Star Wars’ movie back in 1977

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is just one day away from hitting theaters and the bulk of early reviews we’ve seen thus far have not only been encouraging, but overwhelmingly positive. Apparently, this J.J. Abrams character knows what he’s doing.

The Star Wars film canon is undeniably unique for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the fact that the films still resonate with and excite millions of fans around the world nearly four decades after the first installment’s initial release. This is nothing short of astounding, and certainly speaks to how beloved the entire franchise remains to this day.

Quentin Tarantino Violence Swearing

Quentin Tarantino’s movies have become more violent over time

Quentin Tarantino’s movies have become more violent over time

Thought Reservoir Dogs put Quentin Tarantino’s name on the map, the release of Pulp Fiction is the film that emphatically catapulted the quirky director into the mainstream consciousness of moviegoers and pop culture enthusiasts.

Whether you’re a huge Tarantino fan or wholly indifferent, there’s one thing we can all agree on: his films are uniquely saturated with endless profanities and, at times, an almost cartoon-esque depiction and volume of violence.

Movies That Stole Stories From Movies

These popular movies got away with stealing their plots from other movies

These popular movies got away with stealing their plots from other movies

I’m not going to blow anyone’s mind by saying this: not every movie is entirely original. In fact, a huge percentage of the movies that make it to theaters are based on books, comics, TV shows or an assortment of other pop culture properties that studios believe they can mine for success on the big screen.

It’s a tried and true method, and much less risky than giving a creator free rein with a project. But when all else fails, studios can just copy the story of another movie for their own.
