In honor of today being George Lucas’ 68th birthday, we would like to share with you some great behind the scene photos from the greatest brain child in George’s career, ‘Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back!’
Happy birthday George, and may the force be with you!
Even with Empire being the top earning movie the year of it’s release,1980 , it only raked in a total domestic gross of $290,475,067. Adjusted for inflation that takes the sci-fi classic to a total of $777,590,600, placing it #12 on the all time top earners list. Not bad at all considering it only cost $18 Million to produce. The Oscars gave Epidode V three nominations, and came away with one… Art Direction Sound Original Score to John Williams.
