Michael Moore's "The Big One" opened this weekend, earning $146,909 in 33 theaters -- an average of $4,452 per theater (HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, 4/13). In Dallas, Jerome Weeks reported that the film, made by Moore's own Dog Eat Dog Films, cost less than $500,000 (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 4/13). NIKE CUTS: Nike issued a release saying it will air outtakes from "The Big One" on its Web site at www.nikebiz. Outtakes include a scene where Moore tells Nike Chair Phil Knight, "I honestly think you're the good guy. I honestly think that Nike is the good guy here; you're not General Motors," and Knight inviting Moore to tour Nike Indonesian factories (Nike). Moore, meanwhile, says his own Web site (www.dogeatdogfilms) will soon contain his own version of the film's outtakes (N.Y. POST, 4/14).
