Just before George Lucas reissued his "Star Wars" movies to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the original film's 1977 release, I flew up to his Skywalker Ranch for a rare audience with the publicity-shy filmmaker. It was a gloomy winter day, and I remember sitting in his office, waiting for him to arrive, studying a painting that depicted, in elaborate detail, the enmeshed gears inside a clock. For Lucas, the painting represented the triumph of craftsmanship.

Call it good, call it bad, but don't call "Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones" a film. Breaking new ground for major motion pictures, "Attack of the Clones" was shot entirely with digital cameras, edited with digital equipment and, for a few dozen theaters, will be distributed and projected digitally. That approach, some industry executives believe, heralds the future of Hollywood and the death of actual "film" making.

Will the clones catch Spidey? That remains to be seen, but the latest "Star Wars" installment, "Episode II Attack of the Clones," debuted Thursday in 3,161 theaters on approximately 6,000 screens for a record midweek total of $30.1 million, according to Bruce Snyder, head of distribution for 20th Century Fox, averaging about $9,500 a theater. That figure includes sold-out Wednesday midnight screenings, which Snyder estimated contributed as much as $6 million to the total.
