Hi,  PLEASE pass this on to everyone you know-and trust!
My good friend Roberta Perry, who is an executive at a major studio,
explained why it is absolutely essential that you see Battlefield Earth the
first weekend.  Four blockbuster movies are coming out in four successive
weeks.  May 5th is Gladiator. May 12th is Battlefield Earth with John
Travolta, May 19 is Dinosaur and May 26 is Mission Impossible with Tom
These movies will come out on 2500-3000 screens.  If Gladiator outsells
Battlefield Earth on the SECOND weekend (May 12, 13 and 14), Battlefield
Earth will LOSE screens the next weekend.  If Battlefield Earth beats
Gladiator, it has a very good chance to go big time.  There are 83,000
screens looking for movies. But Battlefield Earth MUST beat Gladiator on the
first weekend B.E. comes out.  Anything after that doesn't count!
So please pass on this message and let's fill the theaters on May 12th, 13th
and 14th!  You can go more than once you know!
