At 73 years old, Harrison Ford stands to make at least $34 million for reprising the role of Han Solo. Ford was paid $25 million up front, and given a 0.5% share of the movie's earnings, meaning when the film hits $2 billion worldwide (it made over $500 million on its opening weekend), he'll get another $9 million. Meanwhile, Carrie Fisher only got $1.5 million to bring back General Organa.

Even that's a considerable bit more than what the film's two new stars, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, received; they each only got $450,000 (but do receive a share of the profits once it earns $1 billion globally). If you're keeping track, that means Ford is making 56 times what they are, and 17 times what Carrie Fisher got.

Han Solo is a pretty big deal, but that's still pretty ridiculous. I guess it's a little bit of back-pay for the measly $10,000 he received for the original film.

It's not that surprising but some old prints of Harry Potter books can net you thousands of dollars if you're willing to part with your childhood reading material. Like with many collectors items, the price varies by edition and rarity.

According to the Independent, the most valuable Harry Potter books are first edition hardcovers of "The Philosopher's Stone" from 1997. In these books JK Rowling was credited as 'Joanne Rowling' and there were only 500 copies made, 300 of which became library books.

A find that that could be worth up to $50,000.

Defacing U.S. currency removes those bills from legal monetary circulation. This guy literally just drew $300 out of the economy. Pretty sweet art though.
