Glitter Only Movie To Open In America This Week

MARIAH CAREY's much anticipated debut movie GLITTER (2001) will be the only new movie to be released in theatres on Friday (21SEP01). Only a few weeks ago, movie studio 20TH CENTURY FOX postponed the scheduled 31 August (01) release of the film after Carey was hospitalised suffering from emotional and physical exhaustion.

A few weeks later the troubled singer had to cancel a much-hyped interview with BARBRA WALTERS amid reports she'd suffered a nervous breakdown. But with last week's (12SEP01) terrorist attacks, most studios are holding off on their movie releases - leaving Glitter as the only new release of the week.

Box-office-tracking representatives warn Carey is taking a risk by hitting the big screen at this time. (SVD/LAT/KW)
