There has been an awakening, and Facebook has definitely felt it.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the social network’s most frequently discussed movie of 2015, according to its annual year-end list. The highly anticipated space-opera sequel beat out summer blockbusters Furious 7, Jurassic World, and Avengers: Age of Ultron, with the military drama American Sniper (released at the end of 2014) rounding out the top five.

Slots five through 10 went to Straight Outta Compton, Fifty Shades of Grey, Mad Max: Fury Road, Magic Mike XXL, and Pitch Perfect 2.

The Force Awakens is the only film on the list that has yet to open. It hits theaters Dec. 18, and fans are already lining up to see it. Initial presales crashed several ticketing sites in October, and a month later they accounted for more than $50 million.
