The lightsaber fight between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi was likely a rush for fans when Star Wars: A New Hope opened in 1977, but compared to the lightning-speed choreographed duels of the prequels and latest films, the moment seems to drag a bit. Posted a few days ago, YouTube user FXitinPost re-imagined what the Vader-Kenobi fight would look like if it was filmed in modern day. The video, less than a minute in length, serves as a teaser trailer and already has more than a million views. The video is highly entertaining in that it isn’t the over-the-top sword ballet of the prequels, but rather a slightly faster fight than the original with more intensity.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi opened Dec. 15 stateside to near-record-breaking numbers and continues to dominate the domestic box office over the holiday season.There are things to point out about these estimates before we go any further. First, these are not end-point sales estimates to readers, but the numbers of issues ordered by comic book stores, and only to those within North America — that’s the only information Diamond Comic Distributors releases publicly.
This means that the data can be — and, in fact, is skewed by a number of factors, not least of which are ordering incentives put in place by publishers that require that a certain number of copies are ordered by stores in order to achieve a specific discount, as is the case for the top-selling issue of the year, Marvel Legacy No. 1, or bulk orders on behalf of a third party, as in the fourth most-ordered release, Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man, which was part of the Marvel Collector Corps box for that month.
