posted by Brad Wojdyla - 

40 years ago this month, May 25, 1977 to be exact, the world was introduced to a film called Star Wars.  We all know it has the movie that started a franchise consisting of 8 movies and various TV shows.  But, did you know Fox, the studio that released Star Wars in 1977, pretty much ignored the movie. There was no promotion of the movie, they had no faith in the movie at all.  They felt it was a personal and experimental film from George Lucas.  Boy, were they wrong! It went on to gross 307 million dollars and changed the way of the summer movie "blockbuster".
