Star Wars opening sets records

星球大战上映破纪录

People lined up all week just to see, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” The film set a box-office record for a new movie over the weekend.

人们整周排队只为了看 《星球大战:原力觉醒》。这部电影创下了周末新电影的票房记录。

Star Wars sold almost $250-million in tickets since it opened Thursday night, beating the record set over the summer by “Jurassic World.”

星球大战自周四晚间上映以来已经售出了2.5亿美元的票房,打破了今年夏天《侏罗纪世界》创下的记录。

Around the world, the movie set a record with $529 million in ticket sales. It is an impressive number, considering the film does not open in China until January.

这部电影在世界各地创下了5.29亿美元的票房记录。考虑到这部电影在一月前未在中国上映,这是一个了不起的数字。

The Chinese market added $90 million to “Jurassic World’s” sales, and “Star Wars” should reach at least that number.

One media analyst called the opening “the Super Bowl, the World Series and the Kentucky Derby all rolled into one perfectly realized movie event.”

一位媒体分析师称星球大战上映是“集超级碗、世界系列赛和肯塔基赛马于一身的一场完美电影盛会。”

Most fans and reviewers were happy with the film, giving it a 94 percent “fresh” score on the website RottenTomatoes.com.

大多数粉丝和评论家对这部电影感到满意,并在RottenTomatoes.com网站上给出了94分的分数。

Even Hillary Clinton got in on the Star Wars frenzy. At the debate among Democratic presidential candidates Saturday, she ended with “may the force be with you.” That is possibly the most famous line from all the Star Wars movies.

甚至希拉里也陷入了星球大战的狂潮。在民主党总统候选人周六的辩论中,她以“愿原力与你同在”作为结语。这可能是所有星球大战电影中最为著名的一句台词。

And that’s What’s Trending.
