In the year of Speed and True Lies, it’s hard to believe an action movie could actually miss with moviegoers. No Escape, the sci-fi adventure starring Ray Liotta, took in a measly $15.3 million at the box office, but this week it debuts at No. 7 on the rentals chart. Which just goes to show that every big- budget actioner has its day — though it may have to wait for the small screen. Just below the chart-toppers, the sexy Sirens makes a strong debut at No. 13. Meanwhile, Jurassic Park still reigns on the sales and rentals fronts, but look for the dinos to be replaced by the dwarfs when Snow White hits stores next week.
