“This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.”
A long, long time ago… 40 years to be exact on May 25, 1977, the first “Star Wars” film debuted in theaters, forever changing Hollywood and spawning an empire in its wake.
It cost $11 million to make and would rake in nearly $461 million domestically. It was rebranded "Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope" and remains the No. 11 all-time top grossing movie, with three subsequent "Star Wars" films at numbers one, seven and 10.
