Avatar may have beat Titanic in terms of cold hard cash, but it still has yet to catch up with The Phantom Menace when it comes to the amount of tickets sold, Entertainment Weekly points out. And when the domestic box office numbers are adjusted for inflation, it’s only #26 – all three original trilogy films and TPM are higher, along with Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T., The Exorcist and all-time champ Gone With the Wind. (A New Hope is #2.)

It’s Friday. I’m wiped and James is sick, so unless something breaks or Paula has more fortitude than either of us, you’re on your own: I am declaring this an open thread. Share a link, ask a question, and we’ll try our best to keep up. Or at least not fall asleep before The Clone Wars.
