The British actor (who is of African descent) is the star of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ and has joined Lupita Nyong’o and Harrison Ford to push the movie’s pre-sale tickets over the $100 million sold mark.

December isn’t known for huge openings, since many consumers are distracted by holiday preparations and holiday travel the weekend before Christmas. Rather, holiday titles can have huge multiples, thanks to the stretch between Christmas and New Year’s weekend being the most lucrative corridor of the year in terms of moviegoing.
