STAR WARS: THE PHANTOM MENACE Crossed $1 Billion At The Worldwide Box Office

Known best for how much it's hated by fans, the prequel is set to overtake The Dark Knight to become the #10 top grossing movie of all time. Hit the jump for details. "Meesa so sooo sorry..."



Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace was released in 1999 to a mixed reaction from critics and an overwhelmingly negative backlash from disappointed fans. Regardless, The Hollywood Reporter reveal that George Lucas and 20th Century Fox's decision to rerelease the film in 3D has resulted in it becoming only the 11th film ever to earn over $1 billion globally. Since being released a few weeks back, The Phantom Menace has earned $73.4 million, taking its total to $1,009.4 billion. The kicker? It's now only $1.5 million away from beating 2008's The Dark Knight and becoming the 10th most successful movie of all time.
