Producers of the World Trade Center movie would donate $1.3 million to the September 11 memorial, honoring their promise of donating 5 percent of the movie's opening weekend box office receipts to the foundation. Three other 9/11 charities named Tuesday's Children, the Tribute WTC Visitor Center, and the New York Police and Fire Widows' and Children's Benefit Fund will have a equal share from another $1.3 million amount. Starring Nicholas Cage and Michael Pena, the movie grossed more than $50 million in the box office. Cage and Pena play the role of two police officers trapped under the rubble of the Twin Towers. The filmmakers had promised that they will donate 10 percent of its August 9-13 box office receipts to the foundation and the three charities. According to reports the foundation will be opened by 2009.
