I can't find it now, but someone recently complained about the new Star 
Wars movie using bombers in space where there is "no gravity" (despite 
bombers also being in 'The Empire Strikes back').

According to 'The Last Jedi: The Visual Dictionary' book:

    "Resistance Bombers
     Bombs don't technically "drop" in microgravity,
     but are impelled from their racks by sequenced
     electromagnetic plates in the clip. The bombs
     are then drawn magnetically to their unfortunate
     targets."
