MUSIC FESTIVALS' 20 Most Iconic Moments

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: 42 tops the chart with 27.3 million, which means this old-fashioned sports bio will likely turn a decent profit on a 40 million budget. Scary Movie V placed a distant second with 15.2 million, less than projected and much less than the prior installment's 40 million opening. Even so, with a 20 million budget, overseas receipts are likely to men profit for the Weinsteins.  The Croods show with 13.2 million; without competition for family dollars, this looks to be running down, but with a worldwide total to date of almost 350 million against a 135 million budget.  G.I. Joe: Reatliation sinks to the fourth slot with 10.8 million, but has taken in roughly 250 million worldwide.  Evil Dead goes from last week's topper to rounding out the Top 5 with 9.5 million on a 63 percent plunge that looks more like a sequel than a reboot.  However, it has already made 41.5 million domestic against a 17 million budget.

KIM KARDASHIAN showed up in a Los Angeles courtroom for a mandatory closed-door settlement conference in her divorce case Friday, but Kris Humphries was a no-show.
