Revenge Of The Sith Action Figures
At midnight on April 2nd, 2005, Hasbro officially launched the Revenge Of The Sith (ROTS) toy line across the United States, which yet again gave collectors and Star Wars fans the first glimps of the new movie in toy form. Many fans thought that this was the last time that a Midnight Madness event was about to occur, because the tale of Anakin Skywalker would come to an end with Revenge Of The Sith, the final Star Wars movie released. Many retailers had special exclusive ROTS toys available in limited quantities.
Ever since 2005, Hasbro has been releasing action figures and toys based on Revenge Of The Sith on a regular basis.
According to box office analysis sites, Revenge of the Sith set American records for highest gross in a given number of days for each of its first 12 days of release except for the seventh and eighth, where the record is narrowly held by Spider-Man 2. On its fifth day it became the highest grossing movie of 2005, surpassing Hitch ($177.6 million). The film earned $158.5 million in its first four-day period.
The film ended its run in American theaters on October 20, 2005, finishing with a total gross of $380,270,577. It ranks 10th in all-time domestic grosses and is the highest-grossing movie of 2005 in the U.S., outgrossing second-place The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by nearly $90 million.
