Theater Counts

May 27th, 2005

Revenge of the Sith gains just 2 extra theaters this weekend, and will actually be playing in less theaters than Madagascar. The computer animation debuts in a massive 4,131 theaters (the 3rd-widest opening ever), but will be playing strictly for second place in the charts. Fighting for that honor will be The Longest Yard, which opens in 3,634 venues.
