STAR WARS EPISODE III: REVENGE OF THE SITH 3D Gets New Release Date
The 3D re-releases of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith have now been brought forward slightly, with only two weeks separating them. Fox has also scrapped plans to bring Independence Day back to the big screen in 3D.
After the 3D re-release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace earlier this year (which took the box office gross of the prequel to over $1 billion), Fox are moving ahead with plans to bring the following two instalments back to theatres next year. Originally slated for September 20th, 2013 and October 11th, 2013 respectively, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith has now been moved forward slightly to October 4th, 2013. When they are released next year, Attack of the Clones will be facing off against Rush (starring Chris Hemsworth), while Revenge of the Sith will battle it out with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. In related news, Fox has decided to scrap plans for a 3D conversion of 1996 film, Independence Day (originally set to be released on July 3rd, 2013).
