It's official - "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith" is a mega, runaway, blockbuster, record-setting hit. However, the popularity of the George Lucas film didn't vanquish the overall box office slump that has plagued Hollywood for 13 straight weeks.

Word of the Day
Cthulhu
  • A gigantic fictional humanoid alien god being described with a head resembling an octopus and dragon wings and claws, around whom an insane cult developed.
  • Pertaining to the mythos of Cthulhu and additional otherworldly beings created by H. P. Lovecraft or inspired by his writings and imitators.
This word was invented in 1926 by H.P. Lovecraft for his short story, 'The Call of Cthulhu.' 'Cthulhu' may be based on the word 'chthonic,' which in Greek mythology refers to the underworld.
