Reports of Macaulay Culkin’s death have been greatly exaggerated. Even though Culkin will be conspicuously absent from marquees when this summer’s blockbusters come to town, kids still see the actor as Big Mac-and on video, at least, they’re gobbling him up. Though his partially animated fantasy The Pagemaster was a mere footnote in theaters (racking up a paltry $12 million), the film was a best-seller in its debut week on video. Mac landed at No. 5 on the rentals chart and at No. 1 on the sales top 10, displacing Angels in the Outfield. That would seem to bode well for Culkin’s Richie Rich, which fared much better at the box office ($38.1 million) and is scheduled to hit stores on May 23.
