“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” was poised to pass $1 billion in worldwide ticket sales this weekend and become the first picture to reach that mark so quickly. The film, which officially opened in U.S. theaters on Dec. 18 and in some international markets on Dec. 16, has generated box-office revenue of $890.3 million worldwide through Christmas Day, Burbank, California-based Walt Disney Co. said Saturday in a statement. Prior to “The Force Awakens,” the fastest a movie crossed the $1 billion threshold was Universal Pictures’ “Jurassic World” in 13 days this past June. The new “Star Wars” has already topped “Jurassic World” for largest opening weekend this month and looks certain to clear $1 billion by Sunday, according to Rentrak Corp., an industry researcher. On Sunday, studios will provide Saturday sales figures and full weekend estimates. On Friday, “Star Wars” set a Christmas Day record in U.S. and Canadian cinemas, with ticket sales of $49.3 million. Its worldwide total so far includes $440.4 million domestically and $449.9 million internationally. Disney, which acquired “Star Wars” creator Lucasfilm for $4 billion in 2012, plans to make as many as five more movies in the series. The property has already given a boost to Disney’s consumer products, TV and theme-park divisions. The success of “The Force Awakens,” Disney’s first picture since the acquisition, lays the groundwork for the company’s efforts with the franchise for years to come, according to Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Bob Iger. “It’s bigger than big,” Iger said in an interview with Bloomberg TV on Dec. 21. “It’s bigger than we thought it would be.” More»

Egyptian comedian Bassem Youssef said he might make a comeback with a digital show with Fusion, an American multi-platform media company. In an interview with the weekly American Variety magazine given during the Dubai International Film Festival, Youssef said the show with Fusion will be a ‘little experiment’, where democracy from a Middle Eastern perspective inside America will be humorously and informatively discussed. Youssef, who hasn't been in Egypt for 13 months, said he’s planning a move to the United States from Dubai. The Egyptian satirist, whose popular weekly show El-Bernameg (The Programme) on Egyptian television was cancelled in 2014, said that while he had his own problems with the Islamist regime which ruled Egypt prior to July 2013, his sense of humour was not tolerated by the government that removed the Islamic regime, so someone pulled the plug on El-Bernameg. Youssef said he has decided to not produce El-Bernameg outside of Egypt despite remunerative offers. “This show belongs to Egypt, to an Egyptian team, to an Egyptian audience in the heart of Cairo. And I’m not going to be a dissident, a fugitive who is going to be doing the show from outside the country. I think if I’m not there, it sends a much clearer message about how things are,” Youssef explained. Youssef spoke about his future plans, including a movie project, titled “The Comedy of Arabs,” to be produced in the US. More»

US actor Edward Norton has raised more than $425,000 as of Tuesday for a Syrian refugee whom he read about on a popular blog and whose tragic story moved him "to tears." The Syrian, a scientist who lost seven members of his family in a bombing two years ago -- including his wife and a daughter -- was featured on the website "Humans of New York" earlier this month. The blog, created in 2010 by US photographer Brandon Stanton, began by featuring everyday New Yorkers and sharing small snippets of their life stories, but has now expanded to include individuals from other countries. The Syrian, whom the website simply refers to as "the scientist," is living in Istanbul but will soon move to Troy, Michigan. More»

Egypt’s Giza pyramids will be fitted with green lights on Monday and Tuesday to coincide with the United Nations climate summit in Paris, state news agency MENA reported. Some 150 heads of state, including Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, US President Barack Obama and Russia's Vladimir Putin, gathered on Monday for two weeks of climate change talks aimed at forging a global pact to combat climate change. Most scientists say failure to take action would doom the world to hotter temperatures and calamitous events such as droughts and rising sea levels that would wipe out low-lying regions. More»

"This is a great opportunity where television productions from outside the United States are recognized. Being the first host from the Middle East will put more responsibility on my shoulders to serve this position in the best way I can and I hope that this will shed more light on the vibrant entertainment industry in my region."

The international political sphere has been riding one wave of turbulence after the other, prompting an increased number of pointed fingers and a growing gap between people. Meanwhile in the world of culture, literature and books, one Egyptian chain of bookstores set out to spread what the Arab culture is truly about beyond the Middle East. Alef Bookstores, a chain of over 30 branches across Egypt, has now extended its reach into the heart of the British capital, London.In a cosmopolitan city like London, there is a huge unaddressed demand for Arabic literature and culture alike,” says Ahmed Rahmy, general manager at Alef Bookstores. “With the recent shutting down of many independent bookstores across London, and the domination of two big chains, Alef is hoping to bring the city’s readers a different array of books as well as become a hub for the Arabic culture.” With over 45,000 copies in stock, the bookstore – which lies on one of London’s most toursity streets, Baker Street – presents a variety of reads ranging from English books, translated Arabic literature and non-fiction books, as well as Arabic books in their original language.
