Blade II, which exceeded Blade at the box office, appears ready to also top the original in the home market. The DVD and VHS releases of the film topped the charts in sales and rentals categories in its first week of release.
New Line Cinema is staging a contest to win a Ducati ST2 Sport motorcycle. Go here for details: http://www.blade2.com/ducati/.

In a race against time, Rowan and Shing must discover what mysterious force links them, what it means, and why they must stop Moukie and the Children of the Damned from unlocking the power of the scrolls."
