Economist plaguing Sony Pix

Pity the Economist: It knows not what it slams. The haughty British financial and political mag claimed in its March 22 issue that the Brad Pitt-Harrison Ford starrer “The Devil’s Own” from Columbia Pictures was “suffering” at the box office. Problem was that the film didn’t open until March 26.

To make matters worse, they snubbed the studio again by referring to “Men in Black,” Sony’s big summer release, as a Warner Bros. film.
