Thompson on Hollywood
Press agent Martin Marquet is shutting down his L.A.-based indie praisery M. Link to join Bill Pohlad and Bob Berney's Apparition as managing vice president of publicity. A French citizen, the bilingual Marquet knows both the foreign and domestic universe. Reporting to marketing and publicity chief Jeanne Berney, Marquet joins pub v-p Vicky Eguia at Pohlad's Century City offices. "I am convinced that my new responsibilities at Apparition and my inspirations in the film industry are a great match," writes Marquet in an email.

As the John Keats romance Bright Star continues to play in about 80 markets (total gross $4.2 million), Apparition is upbeat over the modest success of its third release (a service deal with Sony Worldwide Acquisitions Group), Troy Duffy's Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day, which continues to expand with 125 more screens this weekend. So far it has grossed $1,247,352 total.

    ---Spielberg, Hanks, Cameron, Lucas ---and ALLLL the rest of Hollywood
    continue to morally amuse us with anachronistic, seen-to-death WWII
    retreads ---while ignoring completely the gargantuan revelations of
    'peacetime' genocide in their 'fave' mass market dream's land
    ACROSS the Pacific ---i.e. Red China.

    70 million exterminated ---in 'peacetime' unoutted and completely
    unanswered for. Spielberg and Hanks and Hollywood maintaining TOTAL SILENCE ---afraid of endangering their lucrative franchise slums.

    And also ---the epic, and STILL very much unfolding Korean War
    'overlooked' on yet another ten year anniversary as millions continue
    o suffer and die there ----in Red China's neighbor and client state.
