“Titanic” star Leonardo DiCaprio will be back on the big screen February 11, 2000, in his tropical thriller “The Beach,” 20th Century Fox has announced. In August, Fox bumped the film’s release from Christmas to early Y2K — knocking DiCaprio from any 1999 Oscar contention and into the slow winter months studio’s usually reserve for lesser films. The studio has denied that it is unhappy with the story of paradise lost directed by Danny Boyle (“Trainspotting”). Teen fans may be the ultimate judges.
