At 73 years old, Harrison Ford stands to make at least $34 million for reprising the role of Han Solo. Ford was paid $25 million up front, and given a 0.5% share of the movie's earnings, meaning when the film hits $2 billion worldwide (it made over $500 million on its opening weekend), he'll get another $9 million. Meanwhile, Carrie Fisher only got $1.5 million to bring back General Organa.

Even that's a considerable bit more than what the film's two new stars, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, received; they each only got $450,000 (but do receive a share of the profits once it earns $1 billion globally). If you're keeping track, that means Ford is making 56 times what they are, and 17 times what Carrie Fisher got.

Han Solo is a pretty big deal, but that's still pretty ridiculous. I guess it's a little bit of back-pay for the measly $10,000 he received for the original film.

Last year Youtuber Tom BetGeorge put on a lightshow much like this, but even more intense, with 100,000 lights. With the franchise very possibly peaking BetGeorge came back this season with a new show. Devito's mess of a maddening Christmas light show in 'Deck the Halls' would pale in comparison to this.

Give it up for BetGeorge; the force is strong with this one.

Neil deGrasse Tyson took to Twitter recently to toy with some earthlings, challenge, nitpick, and critique a series of scientific inaccuracies in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens.'


He's done this in the past with other movies like 'Interstellar,' and quite frankly, it's a bit of an unbecoming buzzkill. Tyson doesn't care though, and claims some of the audience will watch sci-fi films for ideas on what to invent for future days.

Granted, Star Wars enthusiast, violinist extraordinaire Taylor Davis could've put in a bit more effort on the costume; but hot dang if she can play a tune. What's not to love about some intergalactic musical madness?

IGN Editor Gav Murphy was lucky enough to get to attend the Star Wars premiere in London, and decided it was the perfect opportunity to get back at his buddy who consistently spoils tv shows. Well played, Gav.

At the end of the European premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, John Boyega announced one final big surprise. Then Nelson's Column, a monument in London's Trafalgar Square, lit up like a lightsaber activating.

The spectacle does look a lot like a lightsaber from far away.

Disney reportedly paid £24,000 for the stunt according to The Telegraph. A few alleged suggestions for publicity stunts that were turned down include strapping lightsabers to Tower Bridge and stationing a stormtrooper outside the Prime Minister's residence at 10 Downing Street.
