Dear Friends,

Spring greetings.

Hope this letter finds you well.

I recently returned from a 45-day press tour to promote several new films I am proud to have been a part of. I am pleased that "Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Lightening Thief" opened in February at #2 at the box office and that it has delighted young fans across America. "The Ghost Writer," based upon the book "The Ghost," written by Robert Harris and directed by Roman Polanski has received critical acclaim from The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today, The Hollywood Reporter, and Rolling Stone. "The Ghost Writer" is rolling out to wider audiences this week. On March 12th, "Remember Me" starring Robert Pattinson, Emilie de Ravin, Chris Cooper, Lena Olin, and myself opened nationwide. Kirk Honeycutt for The Hollywood Reporter wrote: "Remember Me" is a smart, engaging drama about young love flourishing amid sadness and loss. Claudia Puig for USA Today said
"Remember Me" is a touching love story, but its broader tale of familial relations packs a greater emotional punch.

Next up, "The Greatest," starring one of the most beautiful and candid women in the cinema, Susan Sarandon and the luminous Carey Mulligan, which I produced with Beau Marie St. Claire, my partner at Irish DreamTime, and Lynette Howell. "The Greatest" which premiered at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, was written and directed by Shana Feste, who made her debut as a first time director with this inspired independent feature film.

This April 22nd celebrate Earth Day 2010 by taking your family to see "Oceans," a documentary I narrate, produced by DisneyNature, the studio that presented the record-breaking film "Earth." Directors Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud feature spectacular never-before-seen imagery captured by the latest underwater technologies, offering an unprecedented look at the mysteries that lie beneath the seas while exploring the harsh realities and amazing creatures that live within. In honor of every guest who sees "Oceans" during opening week (April 22-28, 2010), DisneyNature will make a contribution to The Nature Conservancy to help save coral reefs.

This spring I begin production on a new film titled "Salvation Boulevard" based on a novel of the same name, written by Larry Beinhart, (who also wrote "Wag the Dog"). "Salvation Boulevard" follows a former Deadhead-turned-born again-Christian who finds himself on the run from fundamentalist members of his mega church who will do anything to protect their larger-than life pastor (yours truly). Greg Kinnear, Ed Harris, Marisa Tomei, Sam Elliot, Jim Gaffigan, and Jennifer Connolly round out this all-star cast. The film will be directed by George Radliff.

Wishing you a great year ahead. See you at the movies.

Love and only love

Hollywood Reporter

At No. 4 is Universal's "Mamma Mia!" which boosted its international total to $140.7 million thanks to a $14.6 million weekend at 2,310 screens in 22 markets, down just 10% from the previous stanza. The musical's worldwide tally is $228.7 million. Its best market was the U.K., where "Mamma Mia!" ranked second and drew $6.1 million from 495 sites for a 24-day market total of $63.8 million.

[It actually increased this weekend in the UK and made about as much weekdays. Wow]


Mamma Mia! maintained momentum as $14.6m from 2,310 sites in 22 territories raised the running total to $140.7m. Combined with the $87.9m North American tally, the worldwide gross stands at $228.7m.

The musical climbed 9% in the UK to $6.1m from 495 sites for $63.8m after four weekends, dropped 7% in Germany on $2.7m from 610 for 16m after three and fell 15% in the third weekend in Austria on $484,000 from 94 for $3.4m. It fell 29% in the fourth weekend in Australia on $2.2m from 258 to rank third on $20.1m. There are 33 territories to go over the next three months.

Hollywood Reporter updated totals:

The feel-good musical "Mamma Mia!" saw its cume climb to $142.5 million as mostly distaff supporters rallied for another $16.4 million from 2,430 dates in 23 markets, with Lebanon and Israel coming through with No. 1 openings. The U.K. has delivered $64.1 million in 24 days; Germany, $16 million in 18; and Australia, $20.1 million in 25.

'I CAN sing better than she can. If Madonna gets it [the lead role in 'Evita'] I'll rip her throat out!" said Meryl Streep back in 1996.

SPEAKING OF singing, this very Sun day the actress supreme, Christine Baranski, will depart the Longacre Theatre after the matinee of "Boeing Boeing" and step onto Jeff Zucker's GE helicopter. That will land her in Southampton in time for the gala Hamptons premiere of the new big hit movie musical "Mamma Mia!"

Although she's the star of the film, Meryl Streep, won't be attending - her co-star, the handsome Pierce Brosnan, will join Ms. Baranski for this exclusive event honoring Evelyn Lauder and her Breast Cancer Foundation. Forget about the guest list; it's stellar, and how the small Southampton movie theater will accommodate all this high power, I don't know.
