Random Star Wars Data for May the 4th: Stars Wars Films and Running Times That Can Be Divided By Four

May 4, 2021

In honor of May the 4th, I have something fun for you. I looked at the running times of the 12 theatrically released Star Wars films, and noted which of them have a running time that can be divided by four (there are four of them). Then, I gathered their domestic box numbers, Tomatometer scores, and IMDb user scores to see if the films have better averaged numbers than the other eight films with running times that can’t be divided by four. The results are fun!

Quick Note: This data isn’t important, but it’s cheeky and I like it, so I wanted to share it with the world. Also, I didn’t include the full titles, or dates, because you know the movies already.

Here’s the running time, domestic box office, Tomatometer and IMDb information for each film (I went ahead and ranked them). The films with running times that are divisible by four are bold
