"Revenge" was sweet indeed over the weekend. In its opening weekend, "Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith" annihilated box office records like so many Jedi knights. Twentieth Century Fox said Sunday that the $158.5-million estimated domestic gross of George Lucas' epic surpassed the top four-day tally of $134.3 million set by Warner Bros.' "The Matrix Reloaded" in 2003. Another record fell as well -- though this one needs an asterisk.

In an overall soft market saturated with comedies of one kind or another, "Sahara" led the charge into the nation's movie theaters over the weekend with an estimated $18.5 million at the box office. In something of a surprise, Peter and Bobby Farrelly's baseball-themed romantic comedy "Fever Pitch" opened at No. 3 with about $13 million, just behind the second-weekend tally of Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City," which took in an estimated $14.
