The Entertainment Weekly/AOL Poll
Q Based on the new trailer, does Attack of the Clones look better than Phantom Menace?
Sixty-one percent of our 45,700 voters say Clones — which brings Anakin Skywalker (played by Hayden Christensen, above) one Star Wars episode closer to the Dark Side — will be better than Menace. Still, 24 percent, or 11,285 voters, are undecided. And then there are the 14 percent for whom Clones inspires moans. Who knows, maybe they’re Jar Jar Binks fans.
