     WHAT:  To celebrate the Premiere of Touchstone Pictures' MR. 3000.

            Funnyman Bernie Mac brings his irreverent comedy to the big screen
            to star in this hysterical movie about an over-the-hill ballplayer
            who learns there's more to the game than individual stats and a
            Hall-of-Fame plaque.  Stan Ross (Mac) once loved the game of
            baseball, playing with passion, energy, and every ounce of his
            natural talent.  But somewhere along the way, the fame went to his
            head.  The self-centered star ended his career prematurely,
            shocking his teammates by selfishly quitting the game in the
            middle of a season, right after getting his 3,000th hit -- the
            unofficial key to baseball's Hall of Fame.  Now, ten years later,
            three of Mr. 3000's hits have been disqualified, and the 47-year-
            old out-of-shape former slugger attempts a comeback -- hitting the
            gym and facing down pitchers half his age -- only to find that
            three hits are a lot harder to come by than they used to be!  The
            media love to hate the bigheaded basher and they're going to
            delight in ripping him for every strikeout.  With only his ex-
            flame (ANGELA BASSETT) believing in him, for once in his life,
            Stan must either rediscover his passion for the national pastime
            -- or settle for living as "Mr. 2997."
