Clarifications

The chart titled “England’s Continental Shift” (Variety, Jan. 2-8) referred only to films partly financed by British Screen – roughly one-quarter of all British films. Although it showed that investment partnerships between British Screen and Channel 4 have declined in the past couple of years , this does not reflect any overall decline in Channel 4’s commitment to film production in that time. In fact, in 1993 Channel 4 announced a 40% increase in its film budget – which is mostly being spent on films that do not involve British Screen.

A chart on page one of the Jan. 2-8 issue estimated that “Disclosure” would end up with a final domestic box office of $63 million. That estimate was made prior to the two holiday weekends, which saw the film perform better than expected. Variety now estimates

the film will gross $77 million.
