‘Sith’ already a star in box office record books

“Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith” marched toward the record books early Thursday morning, with estimates of grosses from its midnight and pre-dawn shows floating in the neighborhood of $15 million.”Midnight shows sold out everywhere,” said 20th Century Fox distrib president Bruce Snyder. Fox did not release a tally of the sales — it is expected to announce an opening day figure today — but the huge latenight grosses give it a good chance of topping the single-day box office record of $44.8 million, set by “Shrek 2,” once Thursday night’s shows are finished. Notably, however, the “Shrek 2” record came on a Saturday rather than a weekday.
