Volume III, Issue 49
May 29 - June 5, 2000  

T he Weekly Alibi's Devin D. O'Leary looks at this year's summer movies and makes some predictions about how big the box office for each might be.

Mel Gibson is shooting a movie in Chicago, on a small patch of Lincoln Park that abuts a line of high-rises near the corner of Fullerton and Lakeview.

The first of the summer blockbuster's, the "Mission: Impossible" sequel, is all about action, not so much about plot.

Plus, the latest from Jackie Chan, Claire Denis, and more.
