This advance style B for William Friedkin's follow-up to "The Exorcist" is an interesting footnote to the "Star Wars" phenomenon. The Chinese is one of three Los Angeles theaters printed at the bottom of the poster. To accommodate the opening of "Sorcerer" at the Chinese on 24 June, "Star Wars" (which had opened May 25th and was breaking box office records) was moved to another theatre a couple of blocks away.
But as Friedkin's remake of "The Wages Of Fear" failed to live up to expectations while "Star Wars" continued to perform in stellar fashion, "Sorcerer" was yanked and Lucas' epic moved back to the famous Chinese beginning August 3, where it stayed until June 1978. This marked the first time a film had returned to the Chinese for a second first-run engagement in the theatre's then fifty-year history.
