Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Kylo Ren is really Ben Solo, son of Han Solo and Princess (now General) Leia. Han is killed by Ren in Starkiller Base. Tapping into her dormant Force powers, Rey fights Ren in the snow outside, as the planet is ripped apart after the strike team scores a fatal blow. Separated by a chasm, she and Finn escape on the Millennium Falcon while Kylo Ren, injured, is retrieved and taken to Supreme Leader Snoke to complete his training.

Back with the Resistance, R2-D2 awakes from his low power mode and provides the missing piece of the map leading to the location of Luke Skywalker. Rey takes his lightsaber and flies out on the Falcon with Chewbacca, meeting Luke, who's standing along on a cliff, clearly having sensed her pending arrival...

Star Wars: The Force Awakens mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After Rey touches Luke's lightsaber she begins to have the vision, and when she falls to the floor the blaster is missing from the back of her belt, but after she "sees" Luke and R2 and then stands up the blaster is back again, tucked into her belt. (Even though Rey's having her vision of things all around her, she herself is not a vision).

Question: Was there a specific reason Mark Hamill got 2nd billing (other than he's Luke Skywalker)? Was the billing order based on how much they each got paid? I don't recall seeing his picture on any The Force Awakens posters and it didn't seem like they needed to add hype to the movie by billing "big name" celebrities. Of course that leads to asking why Hamill reportedly got paid 7 figures for his "role" when the actual stars got less than half or a third of that. I know they're all in unions, so is it a union thing? Or just a better agent thing?

Chosen answer: The actors playing Rey, Finn, Poe, and Kylo Ren were mostly unknown, while Mark Hamill is famous worldwide as both a screen actor and voice actor. The billing order was likely based on their fame and then on their new roles. It's not a union thing, minimum wage in the Screen Actor's Guild is far lower than what they were paid. It's a combination of bigger star, better agent, and the future of the series.
