    Wow, it almost grossed $1,000 dollars on Wednesday, which seems like the most unlikely day of the week for it to gross anything like that. Most impressive :D

    Well, BoxOfficeMojo hasn't put up any figures for AOTC:TIE since last Wednesday, and in fact now have it listed as finished.

    Unless anyone can confirm it otherwise, I think the run is over.

    I saw that! Figures once I make a prediction in the Box Office Thread for it, the run ends! :(

    Well, there's nothing showing up on BOM or indeed any other box office tracking websites since 2nd May for AOTC:TIE.

    So, I think it's finally time to put up the near-as-dammit definitive Attack of the Clones box office figures.


    AOTC FIRST-RUN US CINEMA TOTAL : $302,191,252
    AOTC IMAX CINEMA TOTAL : $8,485,488
    AOTC INTERNATIONAL CINEMA TOTAL : $337,381,454

    AOTC US BOX OFFICE TOTAL : $310,676,740
    AOTC WORLDWIDE BOX OFFICE TOTAL : $648,058,194

    It's a shame that it's over. :(

    Oh well, it didn't do too bad for the 5th film in a series. ;)

    A brand spanking new film would be happy to get $648m worldwide :D

    Well, it's such a shame Attack of the Clones just couldn't make it to 1 year at the Cinema :(

    However, with these figures nobody will complain. I'm sure the medi spin will be that "Clones" performed badly-But the truth is, this kind of Box Office take for the film thats 5th in the series, this movie did wonderfully well.

    For those who said it would have "good legs" I say were totally wrong on that!

    So, before this thread dies, anybody have any Box Office predictions for Episode III, on the basis of what this movie did? Will it make $300m in America?

    There are a couple threads about this already running in the Ep3 forums, but...

    I would say £330m US, and around $300-350m internationally. That would be a total of $630-680m worldwide.

    I'm basing this on the fact that ROTJ did better than ESB in the States, but mainly due to the better reviews AOTC got over TPM, helping to build some momentum for Ep3. Plus the fact it'll be the last ever SW movie.

    Thanks Damon :)

    Just to say, the passage in my previous post should have said: Those people who said Clones WOULDN'T have "good legs" were proved TOTALLY wrong.

    I often forget to check my spellings, sorry [face_laugh]

    Hey guys...

    June 11th, 8:30pm at the IMAX theater in Natick, Massachusetts they're showing AOTC again. So you get your 1 year run in the theaters!!! I might even go again...

    Also, AOTC made $29,383,299,377 in receipts last week...unfortunately it was all in Monopoly money. ;)

    But I'm serious about the theater showing.

    Cool, if anyone else wants to catch AOTC:TIE one last time then head for Mass. :)

    <<I would say £330m US, and around $300-350m internationally. That would be a total of $630-680m worldwide.>>

    I'm more optimistic about E3....$330-350 million domestic and about $400 million international.....about $750-800 million worldwide.
    E3 has a lot of story to tell and we get to see the beginnings of DV.....and, of course, the fight between Anakin & Obi Wan...

    Hope you'll be around to put that in the JCC Box Office Thread come 2005 :)

    God-willing...if I'm still around, I will make that prediction and maybe more.

    About 166 more pages to save and I'll have this thread nicely stored in my JC folder. :)

    Anyone know of a DVD sales thread maybe? :)

    You're saving all this? Yowza.

    As for the DVD, not sure. I think the AOTC DVD sold 8-something million copies in the US, but that needs confirming and I wouldn't have a clue how many it's sold worldwide.

    Here's the top 20 grossing films (domestic) of all time. AOTC has slid a bit since I last visited this thread. It's interesting to note though that only TWO sequels have ever done better than AOTC (not inflation adjusted)-- TPM and LOTR:TTT.

    "Finding Nemo" sure surprised me. I was shocked to see that it has overtaken AOTC!

    And that right there proves the popularity of the Star Wars franchise. Even 30 years after their release, all five films have managed to make it to the top 20.

    I love it when people say Star Wars is dead. Far from it :D

    I wasn't that surprised. Not only is "Finding Nemo" one of Pixar's finest movies...but you have to consider the timeframe when it was released. War, threats of terrorism, bad economy...people are looking for something they could escape to and take their kids.

    What bothers me is, while I'm pleased to see the SW films among the most successful films of all time...almost all the movies on that list are only a couple years old. Every weekend, there is a new #1 movie at the box office...and $ records are broken every week. How do these movies compare, when # of screens/admission price differences are taken into consideration? How would these films do with a Box Office ERA?
