'What' Flies Above: movie rental ratings

Posted on

Michelle Pfeiffer must be happy to be alive — her Hitchcockian horrorfest What Lies Beneath scared up enough rental dollars to debut in the top slot this week, faring better than last February’s relationship drama The Story of Us, which only broke at No. 4. The skies kept darkening, however, for John Travolta’s Battlefield Earth, which continued last week’s five-spot nosedive, plummeting to No. 15.
