The IPhone holds a record with the most sales in just 3 days after release with just 13 millions sales. Also Apple made a 19$ million deal with famous musician Drake and knowing that Drake is one of the most successful musician this year, Apple will defiantly have a great spike of sales in the new year.

Top Two Movies

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is truly one of my top 2015 film with estimated of 1.500$ billion dollars in the box office in just three weeks (fastest to reach a billion dollars and still growing in sales). Disney had many merchandises with lightsabers, BB8 robot, and action figures of the new characters. Disney and Lucasfilms announced a series of 20 books and e-books, titled "Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens", with releases starting in late 2015, prior to the film. The series will include books by Del Rey. Many critics have said that it there favorite movie of 2015 and having a 93% on Rotten Tomato.

Sicario is also one of my top films of 2015 with top actors; Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, and Benicio Del Toro. This movie didn't really have much marketing prospective but it had great ratings with a 91% on Rotten Tomato and had 80.1$ million in total box office with 30$ million budget making a profit. Also many reviwers have said that Benicio Del Toro performance was outstanding and that he should be nominated for an Oscar. With Sicario not doing nearly good as The Force Awakens, the movie got great reviews and many critics believe it had great acting. Also it was told that they're planning to make a Prequel to Benicio Del Toro character.
