Popular Post Edmilson 4,984 Posted May 20, 2020 Popular Post Share Posted May 20, 2020 15 years ago, everywhere people was gathering to watch the newest and (at the time) last chapter on the Star Wars franchise: Revenge of the Sith! Despite the lukewarm reception of the first two Episodes on the prequel trilogy, ROTS broke Spider-Man 2's record of biggest opening day at the American box office, earning $50 million. To this day, it's still the biggest opening day on a Thursday. On Sunday, the movie had earned almost $160m, and it ended its career on the US with $380m, a little more than Return of the King, but less than The Phantom Menace. Its worldwide box office was $850m, the second biggest that year behind Goblet of Fire. The score was composed and conducted by John Williams and performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. To this day it's one of my favorite SW scores thanks to the epic choir during the most dramatic scenes. These days, the movie is more of an internet meme thanks to the hilarious dialogues and performances, but it's still considered by some the best of the prequels. Will you celebrate ROTS' fifteenth birthday re-watching it or listening to the score? Manakin Skywalker, MikeH and Chen G. 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
