    SANTA MONICA, Calif., September 14, 2000 -- Hollywood will suffer from the box office blahs this weekend. In fact, insiders anticipate so little moviegoer enthusiasm for the weekend's new wide releases that it won't take much to capture first place. Warner Bros. and Castle Rock Entertainment's R-rated action comedy "Bait" has the best shot at topping the chart thanks to a very wide opening at 2,352 theaters and its likely appeal to urban moviegoers. "I'm sure it's going to play well to African-A

    SANTA MONICA, Calif., September 17, 2000 -- There was lots of Olympic Gold but very little box office gold this weekend. Insiders had anticipated low grosses and a close race for first place, and that's exactly what they got. With ticket sales down over 33 percent from this time last year, it took only $5.7 million for Universal's "The Watcher" to nail down the top spot. Key films in the marketplace - those grossing $500,000 or more for the weekend - did approximately $47.58 million. Distributio

    By: Martin Grove May 08, 2001

    SANTA MONICA, Calif., September 24, 2000 -- Horror was the word this weekend, both on screen and off as Hollywood suffered yet another under-performing weekend. Columbia's R-rated horror sequel "Urban Legends: Final Cut" from Phoenix Pictures took the biggest slice of box office pie, placing first with an energetic estimated $8.8 million at 2,539 theaters ($3,466 per theater).

Charlie has experienced a trauma, but he's doing his best to regain control of his life. Drawn to a mysterious stranger spotted from a distance, Charlie believes he's found the key to his recovery. As he searches the city in an effort to revisit this chance meeting, he encounters old friends and new acquaintances--all of whom have their own tale to tell and their own eerie connection to him, and each other. When he finally meets the object of his fascination what seems like a clandestine romance turns intriguingly darker. For Charlie, the boundaries of reality, which have given his life order, have shifted. The lines separating past and present, true and false, love and hate, gay and straight, have blurred. And as Charlie completes his quest, the urban myths we tell each other--the man with the stolen kidney, the poodle in the microwave--as well as the fantasies that spin in his head , merge as one and come to life to haunt him.
