Studio executives are likely to consider reviving The Practice of opening so-called urban films on Wednesdays instead of Fridays following at least two violent incidents connected with the screening of Notorious over the weekend. (The movie placed fourth on the box-office list of top earners with $21.5 million.) One man was gunned down during an argument over the movie at a theater in Greensboro, NC. Actor Jamal Woolard, who plays the Notorious B.I.G. in the film, was attending the screening at the time of the shooting, according to police. The theater later announced that it had indefinitely suspended all future showings of Notorious . And at an after-the-movie party in New York City, four men were stabbed at the Djumbala nightclub in Brooklyn.
