Date: 18th September 2001
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)
