by | May 23, 2005 | Comments

Needless to say, "Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith" was the number one movie at the box office this weekend … and it absolutely demolished a few records in the process. "Sith" grossed just over $158 million in its first four days of release as it debuted on over 9,000 screens.

Weekend-wise, "Sith" scored $108 million between Friday and Sunday, which means that "Spider-Man" still holds the opening weekend record with its $114 million haul. But the sixth and final chapter of George Lucas‘ space saga snagged several box office records, including biggest single day, biggest midnight screening tally, biggest opening day, biggest two-, three- and four-day total, and fastest to $100 million (3 days, tied with "Spider-Man" and "The Matrix Reloaded"). It also broke the record for quickest to $150m, too. Worldwide the prequel has grossed just over $303 million!

As for the other films presently playing in the multiplexes, second place went to the romantic comedy "Monster-in-Law," which pulled in $14 million in its second weekend. The Will Ferrell family flick "Kicking & Screaming" grossed $10.5m for third place, and the top five were rounded out by "Crash" ($5.5m) and "Unleashed" ($3.8m).
