Tom Cruise didn't stand up too well to the surge of Julia Roberts. After just a week at No. 2 on the Billboard rental chart, Cruise's "Days of Thunder" slipped meekly to No. 3, making way for the charging "Flatliners," the Roberts smash hit which jumped two notches to No. 2 in its second week on the chart.

The Movie: "Mary Reilly" The Setup: Mary Reilly (Julia Roberts) is the housemaid for Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde (John Malkovich) in Victorian England. The Costume Designer: Dublin, Ireland-based Consolata Boyle, whose movie credits include "Into the West" and "The Secret of Roan Inish." The Look: With no makeup, plain-as-porridge uniforms and hair--an auburn wig with choppy bangs--tucked inside either a babushka or popover-shaped bonnet, Roberts' star power is appropriately dampened.
