Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith In Theatres At 12:01 a.m.

In case you've been living in a galaxy far far away, the new Star Wars film opens tomorrow. Several theatres in East Texas are showing it at 12:01 a.m. While it is the sixth in the series, it's actually called "Episode III." That's because it's the last part of the prequel trilogy that sets up the original film.

Prepare to be bombarded by the ultimate Star Wars merchandising blitz. Total box office, home video and merchandise sales for the six Star Wars films is expected to easily top $20-billion. That's far more than any other film series has ever made and greater than the Gross Domestic Product of several European countries.

With "Revenge of the Sith" billed as the last Star Wars film, director George Lucas has pulled out all the stops.
