All objects have their own gravity. The greater the mass, the greater the apparent force of gravity of that mass.

The gravitational attraction between two objects cause them to move toward one another. It can appear one is moving toward the other, or vice versa, depending on the frame of reference. For instance, if you are standing on the Earth, it looks like the Sun is orbiting around you, when it would be more correct to say that both the Sun and the Earth are orbiting a point between the two.

Weight is the measurement of the gravitational force exerted by one mass upon another. You have a weight when you're standing on a scale because the gravitational attraction between you and the Earth is accelerating you toward the centre of the Earth, and the scale is exerting an equal but opposite force upward.

I haven't seen the movie, but the ads have annoyed me so far.

The Starkiller base in the last Star Wars rips apart a star - in doing so, it would annihilate itself if physics had anything to say in these kind of sci-fi movies.
I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
Spoiler:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

The "red matter" in the first of the new Star Trek movies had its own gravity well. (I think that's what you were going for in the OP.)

It's just a movie for entertainment, written by two males and not indicative of anything about reality. Have you worked out that the aliens aren't real either.

I just noticed the horrendous spelling there. It's like "In Depends, day regurgitance." Like I'm wearing Depends adult underwear.

Several times. Are you suggesting it had a script?

No, it had a senior's home scene.

The movie is based on a series of bubble-gum cards from, I think, the 1930s.
