Studio News and Attachments

- FRIDAY THE 13TH – Surprise, there was material left out of the theatrical cut! And not just an extra dollop of karyo syrup. Also, it now holds an opening weekend slasher record at over $42mil.
- NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET – Samuel Bayer, perhaps best known for creating the Smells Like Teen Spirit music video, will be calling the shots on Platinum Dunes’ next remake.
