Taylor Swift released her fourth studio album, Red, on this day in 2012. It features the hits “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” “I Knew You Were Trouble” and “22,” to name a few, but it was the album’s title track that led the direction of the project.
To date, Red has sold more than six million copies worldwide.

The trailer premiered as advance tickets went on sale ahead of the December 18th opening of Star War Episode VII: The Force Awakens, the seventh film in the franchise and the first in a decade, with theater and movie ticket sites swamped and experiencing loading problems. The movie is set 30 years after the events of 1983’s Return of the Jedi — the third film released in the series, but the sixth and most recent in the chronology of the Star Wars saga — and has new cast members as well as the stars from the original 1977 movie — Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford. Though the trailer is filled with action, the plot is kept vague, whetting fans’ appetites while giving little away.
