     Well, here it is, the premiere issue of Previews.... This is
an electronic magazine (of sorts) dedicated to those of us that
want to know everything we can about the film and exhibtion
industry.  All the information compiled here comes from reliable
sources, like Entertainment Data, Inc. who call participating
theatres and get the grosses of each individiual movie out today,
and compile the information for use of the people in the
entertainment industry, and for places that tell us that "Batman
Returns" made over $100 million in it's first 12 days.
     Now I would like to introduce you to the contents of the
magazine.  "Hollywood Updates" are interesting notes and bits of
information from the Hollywood production community.  "Hollywood
Report" gives you a glance into upcoming features.  "Countdown" gives
the countdowns of dates and popularity.  "Teasers" is a jump down
the road on upcoming films.
     Sorry for the delay in shipping, but I wasn't counting on getting
my bike stolen from my front porch, the school being closed for a week,
and several other small things, like my anniversary.  Because of the
delay, I had to remove "Short Takes", which is the industry news, but
next month will have the news for July and the news meant for June.
     Any of you have any suggestions, or critiques about the layout
or subject matter, then drop me a line and tell me.  But remember,
as I heard once before, this is my first time, be gentle.
     So without further delay, I give you the world of Previews....
 
                                   -- Bill Oppel

     For only the third time in Academy Award history, one film won all
five major categories at the Oscar ceremony.  "Silence of the Lambs"
joins "It Happened One Night" and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" in
this prestigious spot, as well as being the first thriller ever to win
the Best Picture Oscar.
     On a smaller scale, the winners of the Independent Spirit Awards:
 
     Best Picture                            "Ramblin' Rose"
     Best Actress        Judy Davis          "Impromptu"
     Best Actor          River Phoenix       "My Own Private Idaho"
     Best Director       Martha Coolidge     "Ramblin' Rose"
     Best S. Actress     Diane Ladd          "Ramblin' Rose"
     Best S. Actor       David Straithairn   "City of Hope"
     Best Screenplay     Gus Van Sandt       "My Own Private Idaho"
     Reel Gold Award     Oliver Stone        "JFK"
 
     The NAACP published a report charging Oscar winning films "used
racist techniques and symbolism that are damaging our psyches and serve
to perpetuate racism."  The report claims that naming the two killers
Hannibal "the Cannibal" Lector and "Buffalo Bill" identifies them with
blacks and American Indians, respectively, because the historic African
general Hannibal and the term "buffalo" identifies an animal associated
with the Indians.  The report says that the use of the colors yellow, red
and black in "Bugsy" are associated with Asians, Indians, and Blacks and
are used to induce terror and death in the film.  And in "JFK", a black
man is seen acting as a spotter for one of the assassins.  Allen Daviau,
the cinematographer for "Bugsy", dissmissed the report as "utterly
preposterous."
 
     James Cameron has signed a five year, 12 film contract with 20th
Century Fox believed to be worth $500 million.  Cameron will retain
overseas distribution rights, ownership of his negatives, and will be
able to greenlight his own films.  Fox will contribute approximately 30
percent of the production costs on the films, and will pick up 100
percent of the prints and advertising costs, in exchange for domestic
distribution rights as well as a hefty distribution fee.  His next film
"The Crowded Room," is set for shooting in August.  John Cusak stars in
the multi-personality drama.  However, Cameron owes Carolco one film from
a preexisting agreement; rumors are "Terminator 3" or the live action
"Spiderman."  Cameron will not say what he will do for Fox next, but has
hinted that he has a science fiction script and an action thriller script
ready, and is scripting a contemporary thriller.
 
     Orson Welles' "Othello" is out in theatres, but Patxi Irigoyen
recently bought what is believed to be the only existing print of Welles'
never completed version of "Don Quixote."  He is currently working with
Mauro Bennini, who worked with Welles on the project, to piece together
the parts they each have for release.  Bennini has an eight minute long
windmill sequence, which is believed to be Welles' greatest cinematic
tour de force.
 
     While Paramount is getting ready for the release of Ridley Scott's
"1492," Alexander and Ilya Salkind's "Christopher Columbus:  The
Discovery" is riding the stormy sea.  Scott left the Salkinds venture for
Paramount's version.  Then the Salkinds star Timothy Dalton bailed out
due to production delays.  Finally, second director George Pan Cosmatos
jumped ship just weeks before filming.  Now with third-string director
John Glen and unknown star George Corraface in the lead, the ship left
dock.  Unfortunately, the storms started when rumors spread that cast and
crew were not being paid for their services.  Tom Selleck, "King
Ferdinand" is annoyed that the Salkinds are using his name to secure
financing and "ties me to their delinquency."  Marlin Brando, "Torquemada
the Grand Inquisitor," wants his name to be removed from the credits
since the Salkinds will not change the script to insure historic
accuracy.  Brando was paid in advance, "Having worked with the Salkinds
before, I was aware of the tricky business tactics they were wont to
employ."  Good news is that Warner Bros. has picked up the movie and
plans to put it in the water several months before "1492"'s release date
of October.
 
     5 million dollars overbudget and two hours longer than the 2 hour 15
minute agreement, Spike Lee's "Malcolm X" was screened by Warner Bros.
executives and recieved a positive response.  Lee and Warner has agreed
on a 3 hour long compromise, but the movie is still over budget.  Lee had
originally asked for $33 million for the movie, but was forced to except
a compromise of $28 million.  Lee finished the movie at $33 million
dollars.
 
     Bits and Pieces:  Foriegn Film lovers and subtitle haters will be
happy to hear that Paramount and Fox are remaking "Toto Le Heros" and
"The Vanishing" respectively.  Oliver Stone is going back to the Vietnam
era, this time the film will look through the eyes of a Vietnamese woman.
"Howard's End" star Anthony Hopkins, director James Ivory and producer
Ismail Merchant have reunited for "The Remains of the Day"
 
     Who Said There Aren't Any New Ideas?
 
     1)  After the Duelling Columbuses, after the Battling Buddhas
(directors Benardo Bertolucci and Mira Nair are readying two versions of
the holy man's saga), came the Fighting Finns.  Tristar and Disney are in
the race to see who can reach the screen first with the Mark Twain
classic, "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn."  But wait!  Fox has signed
John Hughes to come out with the hottest Huck of all.  Hughes has
scripted a modernized version loosely based on the Twain classic.  Stay
tuned for more as the race continues.
 
     2)  "The Addams Family,""Wayne's World,""The Naked Gun,"and the
upcoming "Twin Peaks:  Fire Walk With Me," what do all these have in
common?  Previously, on TV.  Well, TVland watchers beware -- "Maverick"
is coming.  The feature length film, based upon the James Garner/Roger
Moore western series, will star Mel Gibson as soon as he finishes "The
Rest of Daniel."  Garner will play a supporting role in the film.
 
     3)  Blake Edwards and MGM have kissed and made up.  Summer 1993 will
see "The Son of the Pink Panther."  You guessed it, Clouseau had a son
who is in the police force.  Edwards and MGM were fighting over the rights
to the "Pink Panther" movies.
