The box office exploded for Avengers: Infinity War this weekend. Pretty sure everyone was expecting it to do well, people were saying it was going to make 225 mill opening weekend, it ended up making 630 million Globally! Blowing out Star Wars the Force Awakens out of the #1 spot for opening weekend. And it hasn’t even opened in china yet! With no signs of slowing down, it could end up being one of (if not the) highest grossing movies of all time.

May the 4th Be With You! Star Wars day! 

We’ve got an MTV cribs style tour of the infamous Millennium Falcon in a way we’ve never seen it before. Brand spankin new and super clean. And who better to show off the only ship that made a Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, than Lando Calrissian aka Donald Glover. They show off everything from the kitchen to captains quarters to his very own cape closet. It’s a great video and highlights just how good Donald Glover is going to be in the role. Also since it’s Star Wars day you can find huge deals on all kinds of Star Wars products everywhere! There’s a helpful list on the link in this title!
