"Sith" Takes More Revenge Over the Holiday Weekend

by | May 31, 2005 | Comments

Despite some rock-solid competition, "Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith" grossed an impressive $70.8 million in its second weekend. Bolstered by a 4-day holiday frame, George Lucas‘ sixth and final space opera reigned supreme over a pair of wide-release newcomers — but the competition did pretty darn well, too. The DreamWorks animated comedy "Madagascar" drew the family ticket, grossing $61 million over the Memorial Day weekend (in over 4,100 theaters), while the Adam Sandler sports flick "The Longest Yard" was close behind with a tally of $60 million in just over 3,600 theaters.

Well behind in 4th place was "Monster-in-Law," which added $11m to its total grosses ($60m), and "Kicking & Screaming," which made $6.5m, bringing its total up to $44m. "Sith"s total domestic box office thus far is $271m, and its doing some serious business overseas as well. ($520m worldwide in less than two weeks!)

Next week sees the release of three newcomers: Warner Bros.’ "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants," the Ron Howard / Russell Crowe sports drama "Cinderella Man," and Catherine Hardwicke‘s skateboarding docu-drama "Lords of Dogtown."
