Home Movies Movies: Star Wars 7 Gets a Title; “Interstellar” Has Good Overnight Ticket...

Stars Wars 7 has a title at last: “The Force Awakens.” Has it been sleeping? Is Luke Skywalker reviving the force, or is Yoda coming back? The title had to include some reference to the first three (now middle three) Star Wars films. The Force was the central idea to those movies, so that’s it. Principal photography is completed on J.J. Abrams’ movie. Now the waiting begins…

“Interstellar” has made $1.35 million in limited release since Tuesday night. It’s only playing on 249 screens, mostly IMAX, until its real debut on Friday. A three hour film can’t repeat so fast, so we’ll see how it does. Plus, Disney’s “Big Hero 6” is half the length and sort of tells the “Interstellar” story in its last 20 minutes. Very weird. But there are plot similarities which I am sure are coincidences. “Big Hero 6” is going to be a smash, one way or the other.

As for “Interstellar,” the big box office is coming. We hope. It’s the event movie of the season…
