On the heels of "Superman Returns" storming the box office, the four original "Superman" movies starring Christopher Reeve are set to get the special DVD treatment.


With a barrage of new movies hitting theaters this weekend, the box office should swing back into positive territory compared with the same frame last year. The big question now is whether the remaining six weeks of summer will be strong enough to keep outshining the gloomy summer of 2005.

Word of the Day
  • A large punch-bowl of the eighteenth century, usually of silver and with a movable rim, and decorated with flutings and a scalloped edge. It was also used for cooling and carrying wine-glasses.
  • A kind of cotton handkerchief having white spots on a colored ground, the spots being produced by a chemical which discharges the color.
This word is possibly named after Monteith (Monteigh), 'an eccentric 17th-century Scotsman who wore a cloak scalloped at the hem.'
