• 'Star Wars: The Phantom Menace 3-D' Crosses $1 Billion Mark at Box Office

      George Lucas'Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace has crossed $1 billion in worldwide box office with 20th Century Fox's rerelease of the film in 3D.



      It's the first individual Star Wars title to join the $1 billion club. Since opening worldwide less than two weeks ago, Phantom Menace has earned $73.4 million, pushing its cume to $1,000.4 billion through Wednesday.


      And it's only $1.5 million from matching and then overtaking The Dark Knight ($1,001.9 million) to become the 10th-highest-grossing film of all time, not accounting for inflation.

      The Phantom Menace rerelease has earned $35.8 million domestically and $37.6 million internationally. It is the 11th film to earn $1 billion or more globally.


      Fox also is celebrating an Alvin and the Chipmunks milestone: The third entry in the series, Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, has grossed $200 million in Latin America, a franchise best. The threequel has grossed $326.4 million worldwide.

      No Clone Wars forum? Who wishes more?

      I still want more Clone Wars figures in the animated Style. I hope Hasbro will make these 3 3/4 inch figures.

      Stupid movie ideas

      I propose Brittany, Miley, and Madonna are cast in a musical remake of The Golden Girls.

      Still taking suggestions for a 4th cast member.

      Star Trek Beyond: the one where Kirk wears a leg holster and Star Lord's costume

      This movie is almost out and I cringe at thinking how bad it might be.

      Here is to hoping it is at least better then how awful I'm expecting

      What have you watched recently?

      I liked Open Range, though it is slow bike comparisons do something like Tombstone.

      I want to see The Jungle Book. My mom read that to me

      Rank the Hasbro Black Series 6-inch figures

      Poe is a third-tier pegwarmer at Target, but first or second at Walmarts around here, and I think also at TRU.

      I was on the fence about that
