Rather than the $18-22 million range that many Hollywood handicappers were expecting, "Parents" opened to a sizzling ESTIMATED $29.11 million at 2,614 theaters ($11,135 per theater).

    With "Parents" meeting "Titans" there will be brisk action on the box office playing field and a close race for top honors. "It will be close," an insider promises. "Even though 'Remember the Titans' is expanding, they're bringing in a lot of small markets and there's got to be, at least, a 15% drop. Let's put it at $17 million. I think 'Meet the Parents' has a good chance of being number one. It could be $18 million, or it could more than $20 million if the marketplace expands." The last two we

Artisan Entertainment's R-rated sequel "Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2," opening at about 3,000 theaters, should scare up enough ticket sales to end "Meet the Parents'" three week reign in first place. "'Blair Witch' is going to play very young," explains an insider. "They ought to be able to open to $20 million." The original "Blair Witch Project," last summer's sleeper blockbuster,

Synopsis
Cocky, but ambitious, Sean Okden is determined to follow his passion to become a ground-breaking tap dancer rather than follow in the footsteps of most of the young men in his town who expect nothing more than to make a minimum wage at the local steel mill. Though his father and brothers mock him, Sean perserveres, casting aside the trademark top hats and tailcoats of tap for steel and nail plated work boots and rock-n-roll to create a new form of tap that is raw, industrial, and speaks to a new generation of dancers eager to make traditional forms of dance express their own experiences.
