‘MILE’ HIGH CLUB

Eminem has proved he can battle the best. On the coattails of his Oscar win for Best Original Song — trivia alert: ”Lose Yourself” is the first rap song to win an Academy Award — Mr. Mathers’ semiautobiographical 8 Mile also displaced the popular Naomi Watts thriller The Ring, No. 1 since its debut. Also debuting in the top 10, John Leguizamo’s Latino crime thriller Empire makes it a strong week for urban flicks.
