The Star Wars franchise has released several character themed Spotify playlists, which you can find by visiting the franchise's Spotify profile. Fittingly, considering the character's portrayal, Anakin Skywalker's playlist is filled with basically the most generic emo kid playlist imaginable. Check it out by clicking here.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has officially passed Avatar to become the No. 1 film of all time in North America.
On Wednesday, the Disney and Lucasfilm mega-blockbuster is overtaking the $760.5 million earned by James Cameron's Avatar. Force Awakens — which grossed $8 million on Tuesday for a domestic total of $758.2 million — achieved the milestone in only 20 days in release, a remarkable feat. Released in December 2009, Avatar grossed nearly $750 million in its original, seven-month run, plus another $10 million-plus when it was rereleased in theaters.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens continues to be unstoppable. It is now the fastest film to cross the $1 billion mark globally, doing so in 12 days (previously held by Jurassic World with 13 days). It also broke the second weekend record by raking in $153.5 million, beating the previous record also held by Jurassic World, which did $106 million during its second weekend.
$248 million is the final weekend domestic box office numbers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which is an upward adjustment of $10 million from yesterday's press release.
The new exact total number then is $247,966,675 in domestic box office for the opening weekend. That beats the six-month old record of Jurassic World's $208.8 million by about $40 million, around a 20% increase. The expectation is that this record is nearly break-proof, or certainly won't be broken in the next 6 months, at least. That also includes the global opening weekend record, set at $529 million.
In a recent press release, Walt Disney Studios announced that Star Wars: The Force Awakens has set a new domestic box office opening record of $238 million, while globally the film has reached an estimated $517 million. Jurassic World had the most recent domestic opening weekend record at $208 million.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens tonight and tomorrow in theaters everywhere. Just wanted to direct fans to the official thread in the forums for the movie. I'll be seeing it tonight, Thomas is going tomorrow, so look for a full podcast next week on pretty much only this.
About a month ago, Star Wars: The Force Awakens generated over $50 million in advanced ticket sales. Today, it was announced that the film has surpassed $100 million in advanced ticket sales, making it the first film to do so. Expect this number to increase as there are a couple more days until the opening. What's crazy is the previous recorder holder was at $25 million, which was The Dark Knight Rises.
Two of my favorite Star Wars related videos are the "what if Episode Iand II were good" videos from Belated Media. Well, today, only a few days away from The Force Awakens, they released the third one. It's in the replies.
In an interview with Good Morning America, Ron Howard confirmed that the writing for the fifth season of Arrested Development is now underway. Now they just need to get the actors schedules to line up...
Talking to Good Morning America about his new fish picture In The Heart Of The Sea, Howard told interviewer Amy Robach that “Mitch Hurwitz, the creator of the show, is working with writers now. Netflix is behind it, 20th Century Fox is behind it.”
The only entity not “behind it,”is apparently time, which constantly stymies Hurwitz and company’s efforts to get their old cast into the same room together for more than a couple of minutes at a time, an ongoing problem that also...
