     WHAT:      To celebrate the World Premiere of Touchstone Pictures' THE

                Academy Award(R)-winner Tom Hanks teams up for the first time
                with Academy Award(R)-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen
                ("O Brother, Where Art Thou?") for this retelling of the
                critically acclaimed 1955 comedy, "The Ladykillers."  Hanks
                stars as Goldthwait Higginson Dorr III, Ph.D., a charlatan
                professor who's assembled a gang of "experts" for the heist of
                the century.  The thieves: experts in explosions, tunneling,
                and muscle, and the critical "inside man."  The base of
                operations: the root cellar of an unsuspecting, church-going
                little old lady named Mrs. Munson (IRMA P. HALL).  The ruse:
                the five need a place to practice their church music.  The
                problem:  it quickly becomes evident that Dorr's thieves lack
                the mental capacity to do the job.  The bigger problem:  they
                have all seriously underestimated their upstairs host.
                When Mrs. Munson stumbles onto their plot and threatens to
                notify the authorities, the felonious five decide to do her
                in.  After all, how hard can it be to knock off one old lady?
