The Empire Strikes Back tops box office again, 40 years after original release

Star Wars: Episode V — The Empire Strikes Back

The Empire strikes box office gold once again.
Star Wars: Episode V — The Empire Strikes Back is the top-grossing film this weekend, according to Deadline, taking in an estimated $175,000 across nearly 500 locations on Friday. It’s expected to end up somewhere in the $400,ooo to $500,000 range by the end of the weekend.

Screenings of Empire this summer have coincided with the 40th anniversary of the film, which originally arrived in theaters on May 21, 1980. The film took in over $209 million domestically during its original release, with the 1997 Special Edition re-release adding another $67.6 million, according to Box Office Mojo. Clearly, the Force is strong with this one.
With movie theaters still mostly closed across the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic, drive-in screenings of classic titles have been the primary option for moviegoers looking to get out and see something. (Other top earners this weekend reportedly included Black Panther and Inside Out.) A handful of new titles are continuing to open at drive-in venues and select theaters as well as VOD or streaming, however, including the new horror movie Relic, which hit screens this weekend.

The pandemic has decimated box office earnings this year, with the majority of studio releases postponed or shifting to streaming. It remains unclear whether theaters will be able to reopen this year at all, having already posted billion-dollar losses.

DaBaby Talks Finding a ‘Middle Ground’ Between Comfort & Style Ahead of BoohooMAN Collaboration

“I love me some mutually beneficial partnerships,” DaBaby tells Billboard of the fun new team up. “It’s always a blessing, so them wanting to work with me made things pretty easy. Them giving me the opportunity and creative input on the designs and what was going on with everything — that definitely made it a silky smooth collaboration.”The boohooMAN x DaBaby collection, which includes everything from relaxed yet sleek track sets, tees and statement graphics to loud and expressive fits in matte satins and paisleys, was inspired by the effortlessly cool lifestyle led by the star. “I love being comfortable when I dress because I do so much moving around,” DaBaby says of his mindset while designing the collection. “But I also like looking good while being comfortable, so I like to find a middle ground with making clothes that you can still move around in but at the same time, they’re still very expressive and give some sense of style.”As for his favorite style in the collection, DaBaby loves the “all white shorts set with the white shirt and daisy dukes” pictured in the campaign image above.”I feel free when I wear it,” he reveals. “It’s all white, nice and clean. I feel like that’s to move for the summertime. If it had nothing to do with me, I would still buy it.”While DaBaby has no problem rocking iced-out chains and fashion-forward fits, he knows that finding your own sense of style can be intimidating. “Just be yourself, that’s what fashion is,” he advises those interested in fashion. “Expressing yourself. If you’re being yourself, you can’t go wrong.”Ahead of the June 30 launch, shop boohooMAN’s range of summer styles here.
