Viral video chart: Star Wars, Jack Black and Arnold Schwarzenegger

Vanity Fair goes on set with Harrison Ford and Co, the Terminator runs through his film repetoire in six minutes, and a mayor’s very public toilet break

The stellar cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens faced the camera of Annie Leibovitz as the magazine Vanity Fair was given special access to the set. The blockbuster, set about 30 years after the Return of the Jedi, stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow. Actors from previous film, including Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker, also feature in JJ Abrams’ movie.

One Hollywood legend who isn’t in the film – but probably wishes he was – is Arnold Schwarzenegger, who joins James Corden to act out snippets from all his films in six minutes. From Conan the Barbarian to Jingle All the Way and from Twins to Terminator, it’s powerhouse cinema classics.

Young patients at a Texas children’s hospital got a special surprise when members of the Austin Police Department SWAT team dressed up as comic book legends, such as Superman, Batman, and The Joker, and abseiled down the side of the building before acting out an adventure for them.

Staying in Texas, there were laughs galore in the council chamber when the mayor went for a bathroom break and forgot to turn off his microphone and we’ve got more chuckles from Jack Black and Jimmy Fallon recreate Extreme’s More Than Words.

Meanwhile, it’s the goal everyone wants to score. Colin Quaner of VfR Aaalen back-heeled the ball into the top corner of the net - the only problem was it was his own net - providing an own goal which eventually led to a 4-2 defeat against VfL Bochum. Quaner still manages a smile.
