2020 has been a strange year at the box office. With no new movies coming out, classic films rule box office – which is how The Empire Strikes Back became the #1 movie over the weekend. The 40-year-old Star Wars sequel raked in nearly half a million dollars while showing in 483 locations. It’s actually the fourth time that Empire has reached #1 – the first run in 1980, and re-releases in 1982 and 1997 also topped the box office. Other classic movies to win the box office this summer include Ghostbusters, Jurassic Park, and Jaws.
