Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
(also known as The Empire Strikes Back) is a 1980 American epic space opera film directed by Irvin Kershner and written by Leigh Brackett and Lawrence Kasdan, with George Lucas writing the film's story and serving as executive producer. Of the six main Star Wars films, it was the second to be released and the fifth in terms of internal chronology.
The film is set three years after the original Star Wars. The Galactic Empire, under the leadership of the villainous Darth Vader, is in pursuit of Luke Skywalker and the rest of the Rebel Alliance. While Vader chases a small band of Luke's friends??Han Solo, Princess Leia Organa, and others??across the galaxy, Luke studies the Force under Jedi Master Yoda. But when Vader captures Luke's friends, Luke must decide whether to complete his training and become a full Jedi Knight or to confront Vader and save his comrades.
Following a difficult production, The Empire Strikes Back was released on May 21, 1980, and initially received mixed reviews from critics, although it has since grown in esteem, becoming the most critically acclaimed chapter in the Star Wars saga and one of the most highly-rated films in history. It earned more than $538 million worldwide over the original run and several re-releases, making it 1980's highest-grossing film. When adjusted for inflation, it is the twelfth-highest-grossing film in the U.S. and Canada as of 2012.
In 2010, the film was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress for being "culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant."

5 out of 5 Great Movie Poster Frame. Finding large frames at an economical price point can be difficult especially for frames that will fit a Movie Poster. Wal-Mart by far had the best price for a great frame.

5 out of 5 Twice as nice for half the price! If you've been killing yourself trying to find a quality 27x40 frame for under $100, this is it! I'd been all over the internet looking for an inexpensive frame for a movie poster and what I found were junky frames with molding that separates and won't lie flat. This frame has a fixed molding; you backload your pictures/poster right into it. I like this frame so much I'm getting 4 more, 2 to replace the garbage frames I bought elsewhere. You can stop looking now.

5 out of 5 Great frames used for movie posters These frames were, by far, the best price around for movie posters I wanted to frame. The frames look really good and not like your average $20 poster frame!!
5 out of 5 Office Space remodeled... I bought four of these frames for my remodeled office space. I had four Star Wars poster that I want to hang in the new space and looked everywhere for poster frames that where going to meet my needs. Everything I found was at least $100.00 or above. I ran across these at Walmart. They look great on the wall. For the price you can not beat it; that is true. The look that I achieved on the wall is the same look or very close to the same look that the other high dollar frames offered.
Pick these frames up at your local store, if possible, since frames of this size are sometimes damaged in shipping. (Although the vast majority of reviewers reported safe deliveries.)
