THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

...with THREE DOG NIGHT! Once again, I'm enjoying the guilty pleasure of enjoying "Eli's Coming" with fellow fans of the late, lamented SportsNight. That, along with memories of The Service's cover of "Shambala" led me to compile a few more, including "Mama Told Me Not to Come," "Joy To The World," "One," "Liar," and "Celebrate."

LORI McKENNA advance streams The Tree.

NATHAN SALSBURG advance streams Third.

STRINGER streams My Bad.

BIG RED MACHINE: Bon Iver's Justin Vernon and The National's Aaron Dessner share four new songs.

GUIDED BY VOICES shares "You Own The Night."

METRIC shares "Dark Saturday."

CULTS is covering The Motels' debut LP and share "Total Control" as a teaser.

FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE work the car wash for "Denise," whom you may know as T'Pol.

DURAN DURAN: Simon Le Bon has denied sexually assaulting a fan, saying her story is "simply untrue".

THE BEATLES: Five Myths about the Fab Four.

NEIL YOUNG has some bad fans. He even issued a statement.

PAUL SIMON is issuing an album of new renditions of songs from across his catalogue, just before his retirement tour ends.

NOW SHOWING: This weekend's wide releases are Hotel Transylvania 3, which is currently scoring 62 percent on the ol' Tomatometer; and Skyscraper, scoring 50 percent. Sorry to Bother You expamds near-wide at 96 percent.

MIRA SORVINO has claimed that a casting director gagged her with a condom when she was 16.

HENRY CAVILL apologized after coming up against sizable social media criticism for an interview in which he appeared to conflate flirting with rape.

DWAYNE "THE ROCK" JOHNSON talks about the birth of his daughter.

JOAQUIN PHOENIX & ROONEY MARA  are "so in love," but won't marry. I blame the operating system.

THE EMMYS nominations are announced. Congrats! And here's The Guardian on the snubs. FWIW, I was a huge fan of Twin Peaks decades ago when it was getting snubbed by the Emmys, and have zero issue with it getting snubbed now. The Showtime series was painful, because David Lynch -- God bless him -- is largely done with any sort of conventional narrative.

CHRISTINA APPLEGATE will star in Nteflix's Dead To Me.

GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS has an EW First Look.

DIE HARD TURNS 30: It's still the gold standard for action movies, in part because it masters the mundane elements other films handle carelessly.

SQUIRREL v RABBIT: Who You Got?

CATS detect an earthquake.

MALE MICE develop a thicker penis if they grow up around other males, according to scientists at the University of Western Australia.

THE SWARM: An 81-year-old man in Texas is thankful to be alive after being stung by hundreds of bees.

HENRY BUTLER, a virtuosic musician in the unparalleled lineage of New Orleans pianists, has died at age 69.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Ant-Man and The Wasp flies to the top of the chart with an estimated 76MM, toward the lower end of tracking estimates despite a strong Friday that had people thinking 85MM was possible.  Nevertheless, this sequel opens 33 percent above the original and its 85MM foreign gross (despite not opening in some markets due to the World Cup) suggest a nice profit for Marvel, assuming they didn't overspend on marketing.  Incredibles 2 places with 29MM on a leggy 38 percent drop; its continued popularity with family audiences may have slightly dinged the Marvel topper.  It's now the highest grossing animated film of all-time in North America.  Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom shows with 28.6MM on a 53 percent drop as it crosses a Billion dollahs worldwide.  The First Purge debuts in the fourth slot with 17.2MM, smack in the middle of tracking estimates and doing fine with 31MM since opening on the Fourth against a mere 13MM budget.  Sicario: Day of the Soldado rounds out the Top Five with 7.3MM on a 61 percent skid.

ANT-MAN & THE WASP: The consensus that this is a funnier and ligher film than its predecessor is a bit off.  To be sure, Paul Rudd gets to make Scott Lang a bit more like Paul Rudd, which makes various scenes more overtly belly-laugh funny.  But the original was a pretty breezy heist flick and the sequel is a more traditional comic book tale -- though one solidly within the sensibility of both the Ant-Man comics and the first movie.  And it's entirely successful on those grounds, with the original ensemble hitting on all cylinders while integrating newcomers (including Michelle Pfeiffer and Laurence Fishburne )pretty seamlessly.  There are two bonus scenes; watch them at your own risk.

STEVE DITKO, who co-created Spider-Man and Doctor Strange with Stan Lee, has died. He was 90.
