• '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.

      Maybe when we meet up, we can discuss attending WonderCon together. I'm very curious to find out what it looks like at the LA Convention Center.

      JT - I noticed the exact same thing...sort of a disappointment, but I suppose it's a trade-off for the really good detailing on the rest of the ship.
