  • "THE BIG ONE" OPENS; NIKE RUNS CLIPS ON BIZ WEB SITE

              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).
