 UNIVERSAL PICTURES TO OPEN 'SNEAKERS' IN EXCLUSIVE ENGAGEMENTS
 ON SEPT. 9 AND NATIONWIDE ON SEPT. 11
 UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Pictures will open "Sneakers," a caper film starring Robert Redford, Dan Aykroyd, Ben Kingsley, Mary McDonnell, River Phoenix, Sidney Poitier and David Strathairn, in exclusive engagements in eight cities on Wednesday, Sept. 9 followed by a nationwide release on Friday, Sept. 11.
 The eight exclusive engagements include Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Dallas, Washington D.C., San Francisco, Seattle and Toronto.
 Phil Alden Robinson directs "Sneakers" from a script he wrote with Lawrence Lasker and Walter F. Parkes ("Awakenings, "War Games"), who also serve as the film's producers. Lindsley Parsons Jr. is executive producer.
 "Sneakers," Robinson's first project since the multi-Academy Award-nominated "Field of Dreams," is about a team of high-tech security experts whose questionable pasts have brought them together under the leadership of Martin Bishop, a fugitive from the '60s (Robert Redford). When his true identity is discovered, Bishop and the "Sneakers" are blackmailed into participating in a covert operation.
