“The Experts"--John Travolta’s first film since the 1985 bomb, “Perfect"--won’t be coming soon to a theater near you. After brief playdates in Texas and Oklahoma last month, the Paramount pic is headed for video--due on shelves in early June, according to Paramount Home Video.

Krane, who produced the latter pic, told us “it would make good marketing sense for Paramount to release ‘The Experts’ after ‘Daddy’s Home’ generates attention. . . “
