The Force Awakens debuts Friday with nothing but potential for greatness, at least if we’re going by the track record of director J.J. Abrams and a few kick-ass trailers and commercials.
Star Wars The Force Awakens, billed as the biggest movie release of the year, raked in Dollars 14.1 million in ticket sales on its opening day in some global markets. The Palladium is one of the largest theaters in the Houston area.
The Force Awakens obliterated box office records even before its opening Thursday night. I haven’t read an article. “I want the people to be able to see them and enjoy them as much as we’ve enjoyed making them”, Bornhoeft said.
“Of course, the tech effects are great, etc., people love to talk about it”, Bernacchi said.
If you do plan on seeing the movie and wearing a costume or bringing a prop, such as your favorite lightsaber, it’s a good idea to call ahead first to find out the security protocols. Others, like the Palladium embraced them and required fans to show a valid ID before getting a wrist band during admission.
An Australian couple got married on Thursday as they waited in line for the first USA public showings of Star Wars; The Force Awakens, while movie theaters around the country held marathons of the previous films in the franchise.
“I think it has the chance to be a single-day biggest ever, weekend ever, and, you know, film ever”, said marketing expert Mike Bernacchi, a professor at University of Detroit Mercy.
Lucasfilm Daisy Ridley and John Boyega star in the seventh installment of the “Star Wars” franchise. The movie is from Walt Disney Studios owned by the same parent company as ABC7NY.
