‘Naked’ rebounds from quaky L.A. exclu B.O.

Business in Los Angeles continued to shake off the effects of the earthquake last weekend, as indicated by a general upward trend on the exclusives roster. The Jan. 17 Northridge quake leveled B.O. the previous weekend.

New York saw “Naked” lose only a little steam and First Look’s “The Scent of Green Papaya” open to generally good reviews and a healthy B.O.
