J.J. Abrams Broke His Back While Helping Harrison Ford

Jedi News has an article from an EW report, stating that Abrams broke his L4 while trying to help Ford out from under the door that broke his leg.
  Luckily is wasn’t debilitating, as Abrams only found out what was causing him pain when he went to the doctor’s office a few days later. 

J.J. himself made the following comment on the incident:

The guy is like a real-life superhero. He should have the Marvel logo above his name,” Abrams said, before recalling what happened when the actor broke his leg on the Force Awakens set last year.

“He’s down there and he’s toughing it out. He’s a super human being. He’s literally lying there making jokes,” Abrams said. “This door had gone down, and I’m trying to help lift it up – because that’s the kind of guy I am. I’m trying to lift up this door and I feel this pop in my back. I’m like ‘Uh, that’s weird.’”

Cut to a couple of days later, and Abrams found himself at a doctor’s office. “He goes, ‘Oh you have a broken back,’” Abrams said. “I broke my L4 trying to lift this door.”

EA has just announced another mode for Star Wars Battlefront, which is due for release in November.  The new mode is a deathmatch “Blast mode”, a classic style for a Star Wars game.  The mode apparently features 10 versus 10 deathmatches in more compact locations.  It certainly seems to have the makings to be a highlight of the new Battlefront.
