In addition to spawning countless internet memes, Star Wars: The Force Awakens's Adam Driver snagged himself a trophy at the MTV Movie Awards last night for Best Villain.
As Kylo Ren, Driver carried on Darth Vader's legacy and brought an end to one of cinema's most enduring heroes. He'll be back in the next Episode, where presumably we'll learn more about him since the nature of his true identity will be less shrouded in mystery.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan & Abrams, features a cast including actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong'o, Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Andersen, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow. They will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters December 18, 2015, kicking off a new trilogy of Saga films as Episodes VIII and IX are already scheduled. The film garnered a record $247 million at the domestic box office and $529 million globally in its opening weekend.0comments
