'Thirteen Days' held for 21 more

graphic

HOLLYWOOD, California -- "Thirteen Days," Kevin Costner's Cuban missile crisis drama, is going to have to wait 21 days more before it hits movie theaters nationwide.

New Line Cinema is pushing back the movie's release from December 22 to January 12 because the "marketplace is really crowded during that time," New Line distribution president David Tuckerman said. "And they're (holiday releases) all high-profile films."

"Thirteen Days" will be in limited release in New York and Los Angeles starting Christmas Day, allowing it to contend for next year's Oscars.

    Julia Roberts joins Hollywood powerbrokers

    graphic

    LOS ANGELES, California -- Julia Roberts has something else to grin about besides her $20 million-per-film price tag -- she's just been named one of the most influential women in Hollywood.

    Hollywood Reporter magazine's annual list of the 50 most influential women in entertainment ranks Roberts No. 3. She's the first actress to make the list, published Tuesday. Paramount Pictures executive Sherry Lansing is No. 1 for the second year in a row.

    "Julia Roberts is really the only actress in Hollywood who has the ability to have any project she's interested in made," said Christy Grosz, managing editor of special issues. "She's the only one who can command that kind of power."

    The first two hours of "Dune" reached 3.06 million homes, making it the highest-rated original program in the Sci-Fi Channel's history. The final segment airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST. Sci-Fi has already committed to a "Dune" sequel.

    The six-hour epic was adapted from the first book of Herbert's "Dune" series. It was originally made into a feature film in 1984 and was directed by David Lynch.
