This news will hardly come as a shock, but Star Wars: The Force Awakens broke some pretty big box office records this weekend — not just one, but several, as Disney and Lucasfilm’s flagship installment of the new trilogy hit theaters Thursday night, quickly shattering a couple of records in its first 24 hours before completely dominating the weekend. Again: hardly surprising, right?

SNL alum Tina Fey and Amy Poehler certainly commandeered some spotlight away from Star Wars with a dual-hosting close to 2015, but Kylo Ren may have the last laugh. The Force Awakens and Girls star Adam Driver will make his SNL hosting debut in January, the first not-ready-for-primetime player lead of 2016.

J.J.

In a bit of clever Jedi mind-trick-thinking, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler appeared on Late Night With Seth Meyers last night to promote Sisters…using Star Wars toys. Fey and Poehler’s new comedy has the unfortunate timing of opening the same weekend as The Force Awakens, but rather than bemoan their luck, the duo have fully embraced it, from satirizing J.J. Abrams’ behind-the-scenes featurette to telling everyone who asks that they’re totally not worried about it.

by Matt Singer December 18, 2015 @ 1:26 PM
From basically the first moment Star Wars: Episode VII was announced, nerds began speculating about what it would entail. Would the original characters appear? Would their children appear? Would C-3PO have a red arm for absolutely no reason? The rumors were rampant, and they remained rampant right up through this month, when the movie finally arrived in theaters.

Earlier this year, Simon Pegg accidentally let it slip that Daniel Craig — Bond, James Bond himself — would be making an appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. When asked about his own cameo, Pegg replied, “I wasn’t a Stormtrooper. Daniel Craig, he was a Stormtrooper,” before very quickly adding, “I shouldn’t have said that.” Craig would later shoot down the report saying, “Why would I ever bother doing something like that?” but it turns out, it was all true and we can tell you where to find 007.

It’s one of the most iconic movie openings in all of movie history: the Star Wars opening crawl.
