VARIETY notes a pop culture dustup set for June, when HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX
, THE HULK
, and CHARLIE'S ANGELS: FULL THROTTLE
are all due. The Potter book hits bookstores June 21st while Ang Lee's comic book blockbuster opens on June 20th. The daring beauties grace screens the weekend after.
Concerns center on POTTER
's projected $100 million-plus revenues. Will such a large expenditure by the public keep them out of theaters? Adam Fogelson, a Universal marketing exec, says, "These books are an amazing cultural phenomenon. But it's our sense that movies have been able to create their own momentum." Questions? Comments?
