One Day in the Valley
Directed by Julian Farino
Written by Marc Abrams & Michael Benson
It's "Aquaman's" opening day and the pressure is on. Initial box office projections, already "Titanic"-sized, get even higher after the first East Coast numbers stream in, giving everyone hope that the film has a chance to pass "Spider-Man" as the biggest opening weekend in history. To avoid getting recognized, Vince and the boys decide to take in a showing in the Valley, but the 100 degree heat sets off blackouts -- and unsure West Coast numbers. The bouncing box office receipts and the heat push everyone to the brink, so to unwind, the crew ends up crashing a high school party, where Vince gets to live out his "Almost Famous" fantasy. When Ari finally finds them - a drunken Vince celebrating on a rooftop - he breaks the big news: "Aquaman" is back on track to break the weekend box office record.
