Paul Greengrass Arrives

Universal had the good sense to recognize, after Bloody Sunday, that this director was good. Paul Greengrass delivered on Bourne Supremacy and does it again with United 93, which did surprisingly well over the weekend, coming in number two with an estimated $11.6 million on 1795 screens. The movie cost less than $20 million and will make its money back easily. And Greengrass is on the Hollywood A-list. We'll see how the Academy responds to this at year's end. And Paramount is heaving a sigh of relief over Oliver Stone's next: World Trade Center, starring Nic Cage. (They're running a ten-minute clip of WTC in front of the unveiling of a digitally remastered print of Platoon at Cannes.)
