Star Wars: The Phantom Menace Re-release Broke the Box Office

Star Wars: The Phantom Menace Re-release Broke the Box Office

Star Wars re-released its Episode I - The Phantom Menace trailer with a glimpse of the upcoming series Acolyte on a special occasion on May 4. 

The Phantom Menace re-release made a powerful debut, securing the second position and surpassing the re-premiere weekend collections of Titanic and Endgame. 

It is now running with a global total of $15.1 million, which includes $8.7 million domestically and $6.4 million internationally for the re-opening.

According to trade analyst Luiz Fernando, the Star Wars Episode was re-released in the US across 2700 theaters. 

Previous Record:

When The Phantom Menace 3D was re-released in 2012, it made $102.7 million worldwide, which is relatively less than this time. 

Written and directed by well-known American filmmaker George Lucas, ‘The Phantom Menace’ was unrivaled and secured a huge media spotlight. The force is still embraced by various fans, even after 25 years since its first journey back into the galaxy far, far away. 

However, starting from May 3, the re-premiere lasted only one week. As the comeback of Phantom Menace performed stupendously, the upcoming Star Wars series The Acolyte may likely perform even better.
