‘Star Wars’ Continues to Smash Records

Nobody knows if it’ll have the legs to pitch for the most successful film in the franchise, but ‘Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith’ is well on its way to becoming one of the top films of all time. Figures released yesterday show a four-day intake of $158.5 million, significantly more than the previous four-day record of $134.3 million set by ‘The Matrix Reloaded’. Three-day numbers up to Saturday night were $124.7 million, besting the $114.8 million earned by ‘Spider-Man’. Taking into account a simultaneous release in most foreign countries, the complete five-day total thus far for ‘Sith’ is $303 million, almost double the $115 million budget.
