That is the only reason why it has shown such immense ratings and raked in such a huge amount of cash at the box office.

Today it is a part and parcel of the culture that is western civilization. $1.1 billion is the worldwide record that Star Wars has set. It has left Jurassic World behind it choking in the dust.

It showed a moving and memorable series of scenes that left an indelible impact on the minds of the viewers.

Meanwhile, Daddy’s Home was another comedy with Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg starring in it. It too left a powerful impression on the public psyche this holiday season. Daddy’s Home had a $50 million budget and it was released by Paramount Pictures. 

The Vice Chairman of Paramount said that there was some secret magic ingredient in a movie that kept the cultural consumers coming back for more. It is a feel-good factor that inspires many to see the movie again and again and also recommend it to family and friends.

Other movies that made it big at the box office include Joy which has Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper starring in it. Then another one that shines is Point Break.

Fox’s The Revenant also made it into the hall of fame this Christmas season. Film-making sure has taken off into the sky with its use of special effects and interesting storylines that keep the audiences at the edge of their seats.
