I'm seeing it tomorrow morning, but seeing Mockingjay tonight. I'm genuinely concerned about overhearing something in the lobby, lol. May have to bring some headphones with me.

 

 

We'll be speedwalking through the lobby, lol.

Like the episode of "Family Guy" where Peter spoils "The Empire Strikes Back" for everyone in line. My wife and I were joking about that last night on the way out of the theater... :lol:

Such as? (Use the spoilers tag)

 

My biggest problem is that Rey went from not even knowing if the force was real to full on beasting a trained Jedi/sith apprentice.  I think pulling the saber out the snow was enough.  Earthquake and it is over
 
Plus, can someone fire the design team of death stars for the empire/first order...again an unprotect d way to blow it up???

Star Wars: The Force Awakens” micronized box office records this weekend, racking up a monumental $238 million opening and justifying the Walt Disney Company’s $4 billion purchase of LucasFilm.

That 2012 acquisition was intended to launch a cinematic universe set in a galaxy far, far away: a series of interconnected sequels, spin-offs, and prequels that would serve as a filmic parallel to Disney’s Marvel Comics-inspired adventures.

J.J. Abrams’ nostalgic take on the series of space operas George Lucas established was a hit with critics and fans, earning strong reviews and an A CinemaScore. Its opening soared past the previous high-water mark of $208.8 million established last summer by “Jurassic World.” It more than doubles “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’s” December record debut of  $84.6 million.

Globally, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” scored the second biggest opening in history, earning $517 million worldwide, behind only “Jurassic World’s” $525 million bow. Unlike “Jurassic World,” the seventh film in the “Star Wars” saga did not have the benefit of showing in China on its inaugural weekend. It opens there on Jan. 9.

Exactly, and that can add a few mil in some cases, or take away a few mil.

I thought this would do 185 opening weekend, but I would be curious to see the screen count.  Theater count is one issue, screens is another.  Then again, the way December releases have gone, older titles could have left and no one would miss it.

Make it $247 mil:

http://money.cnn.com/2015/12/20/media/star-wars-the-force-awakens-opening-weekend-box-office/index.html

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" became the biggest opening in movie history over the weekend, bringing in an estimated $247 million in North America, according to Disney (DIS).

The film flew past the opening weekend record held by Universal's "Jurassic World," which made $208.8 million on the weekend it opened in June.

The film has made $528 million around the world since opening overseas on Wednesday. That's a new record, too: "Jurassic World" made $525 million globally when it opened.

The international totals are all the more impressive because "The Force Awakens" has yet to open in China, the world's second biggest film market. It will open there on January 9.

When we walked out of the theater after the first matinee the crowd in the theater was the biggest I have EVER seen in that theater.  For a 1pm showing.

As Diva and I were walking out I said to her, loud enough to be heard, "I am so tempted to shout out a spoiler right now".  :lol:

I've already had to have a convo with my 6yr old about what she can say about the movie in front of family members on Christmas day, lol.

I watched the entire season of Scream Queens and never knew that Billie Lourd (Carrie Fisher's daughter, who also has a small role in TFA), was one of the main characters.

So for the young Han Solo spinoff, Michael b Jordan has to be a shoe-In for Lando right?

Would be perfect casting if he can get the voice right.
