Universal Pictures chairman Casey Silver, after a year of movie flops that culminated with the holiday weekend's disastrous $8.2 million opening of the expensive sequel "Babe: Pig in the City." He was reportedly forced to resign. Other box office flops that have landed Universal second to last among major studios were "Primary Colors," "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," "Out of Sight," and the Nov. 13 release of "Meet Joe Black," starring Brad Pitt. The latter cost more than $85 million and has only grossed $35.8 million after three weeks.
