'REPORT' CARD

It looks like Tom Cruise is back on top of his game. Cruise's sci-fi thriller Minority Report maintained its edge on the sinful Richard Gere-Diane Lane drama Unfaithful for the second week, while Clint Eastwood took on the whippersnappers with his serial-killer flick Blood Work (which debuted at No. 3). And DVD buyers set up a battle of the Stevens, as the Spielberg-directed Minority kept the Spielberg-produced Back to the Future trilogy on deck.
