Summer foreign film B.O., release dates, changes

SUMMER SUBTITLES

“Il Postino” remains an anomaly among foreign-lingo summer pics, having generated the most B.O. since 1966’s French import “A Man and a Woman.” Miramax hopes the Gallic romantic comedy “Jet Lag” takes off with auds and plays well beyond the season.
