Breaking Records : Star Wars: The Force Awakens became the fastest film to take $1bn (£674m) at the global box office. The studio says the JJ Abrams film earned enough on Wednesday to pass the $760.5m (£520m) taken by Avatar over its lifetime. The latest film returns to “a galaxy far, far away” some 30 years on from the action of 1983’s Return of the Jedi. It sees original trilogy stars Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher reprise their Han Solo and Princess Leia roles alongside younger newcomers.
The plot goes as follows three decades after the defeat of the Galactic Empire, a new threat arises. The First Order attempts to rule the galaxy and only a ragtag group of heroes can stop them, along with the help of the Resistance. If you are a fan then this movie is a must see.
