$303,200,000 Worldwide, looks like he broke even in a day or two
This is also why I think Episode VII through IX might eventually happen. There is far, far too much money there to just walk away from
Agreed - also - since the movie REALLY DOESN'T explain why Anakin's ghost in the ROTJ DVD is now Hayden instead of Sebastian Shaw, I feel that Lucas doing this opens the door to completely disregard ALL EU material and to make EP7 - EP9. And as a result, a key part to those will be that Anakin & Yoda have been appearing to Luke as guides to help him form the new Jedi Order.
Lucas should be getting visits from shrinks and other types of mental health professionals all basically asking him the same thing....
Shrink: "So let's see Mr. Lucas, you have a franchise that for each movie grosses $400+ million, the movies each cost you not even half that much, not a single one of your other movies, unless it had the name Indiana attached to it EVER made any money, and you're giving up Star Wars movies?"
Shrink: "I'm sorry we're going to have to take you to the ward for observation and medication. Get me a straight jacket in here on the double!"
