Solo Movie Advance Ticket Sales Higher than Black Panther

The Black Panther movie broke records right and left as the most popular superhero movie ever. Now Solo: A Star Wars Story is threatening to break some records of its own. It looks like the chances of this stand-alone adventure story being a success are good. This movie covers the story of Han Solo and we meet Chewie and see how he becomes a co-pilot and more. It’s an origins story, hopefully, done right. Tickets for Solo: A Star Wars Story went on sale Thursday night and the first 24 hours of presales have already doubled Marvel’s megahit Black Panther, according to Fandango. It does not beat Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, which remains the fastest-selling film of the year in these early metrics. This is likely good news for Disney, since the Solo movie has had a bit of a troubled production. They had to deal with replacement directors, extensive reshoots, and some poor public perception. It seems that’s all water…

Mr. Plinkett’s The Star Wars Awakens Review

In the mood for a cynical review? Are you not feeling as enchanted with the new Star Wars movies as everyone else seems to be? Here’s an oldie you may have missed – or maybe you didn’t, but it never hurts to give it another watch. It’s long, so pop some popcorn or find your favorite snacks and let’s settle in for some very opinionated Star Wars chat. You know we love Star Wars here. I’ve loved Star Wars since my earliest memory and writing for this site for so many years has been one of my greatest pleasures. That said, there are still things that can annoy me about the franchise. Can you relate? I’m not a 100% unconditional fangirl. This is even truer since Disney took over and the franchise we grew up loving started living by the Mouse’s rules. Still, anything that brings more Star Wars into our…

How Has Star Wars Inspired Industries?

In 1977, George Lucas created a film series about a galaxy far, far away in which one small boy could change the fate of an entire universe. Now, more than 40 years later, the influence of the iconic Star Wars franchise can be seen in industries of all sizes. From military operations using codenames taken straight out of the movies to religious sects being formed based on the Jedi way of life and more, there is no doubt that Star Wars made a serious impact on the world as we know it. Probably the easiest place to start looking at how Star Wars has influenced the world is by looking at the gaming sector, which has not only embraced the universe, but also taken it to new lengths, continuing to incorporate the memorable characters, themes and settings in new games to this day. In fact, if it wasn’t for Star…
