Star Wars: The Force Awakens started with an enormous, successful opening. Breaking box office records left and right, this new installment in the Star Wars franchise is the most successful and probably the best movie of 2015. This film has numerous worldwide box office records broken including, the fastest film to gross one billion dollars (which was in 12 short days), biggest worldwide opening weekend and single weekend gross ($529 million), biggest Disney international opening ($281 million) and passing Jurassic World that came this year. It also broke countless domestic (US & Canada) box office records including, taking first in the US.
There’s obvious reasons why this movie was the top and was the overall most successful movie, possibly ever. Of course, just because a movie does well, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best movie. However, Star Wars: The Force Awakens was successful because, not only, was it the most hyped up movie, it delivered a high quantity of performances, cinematography, wonderful scenic views and it gave shocking storylines as well as unforgettable moments, with that being, people from all ages, whether they have enjoyed Star Wars in the past or not, have been recommending this movie to be on your watchlist of 2015. It was a fantastic, adventurous, and uplifting movie that is exceedingly fun for the entire family. And lastly, the nostalgic factor gave the movie that final kick of Star Wars enthusiasm that we didn’t get from the prequels. All in all, Star Wars: The Force Awakens was an, out of the ball park, movie.
Episode 7, in all it’s success and glory will live on for generations to come. It forever be the movie that topped all other movie in box office records and perhaps even in the Star Wars franchise movies. It will live on to be a high rated movie and will be in the hearts of fans forever. Thank you J. J. Abrams.
