Corte Madera Chronicles

A group blog; a place to share photos, thoughts, stupid shit we find on the internet, whatever. Hopefully we'll get at least one post per day from someone, and not so many posts that it's too overwhelming. Have fun!

And the numbers

Showing on more than 9,000 screens, the film took $50,013,859 (�27,370,585) on Thursday, its first day of release.
The sixth film of George Lucas' epic cycle also set new two, three and four-day North American records.
However, it failed by $6m to clinch the opening weekend record - $114.8m set by Spider-Man in 2002.

On Thursday, Revenge of the Sith opened with special midnight screenings and beat the previous one-day record of $44.8m (�24.5m) set by Shrek 2 in May 2004.
Bruce Snyder, president of domestic distribution at 20th Century Fox, called the takings 'staggering'.
'It's probably 20% more than I thought we could do,' he said.
