WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Black Widow dominates the chart with an 80MM domestic debut.  Pre-release projections were in the 80-90MM range.  The House of Mouse also claims 78MM in foreign markets and another 60MM from streaming on Disney+.  That last bit represents some newfound transparency and will raise eyebrows in the industry, including exhibitors, given that the studio will keep all of that streaming cash for itself and required only 2MM customers.The studo also may have released the streaming total to spin the film's take as closer to Black Panther or Captain Marvel than Doctor Strange or Ant-Man and the Wasp. F9 placed with 11MM and a 141MM domestic total.  Boss Baby: Family Business showed with 9MM and a 35MM total.

THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE...

...with the wicked, wicked WILSON PICKETT, live from Germany, circa 1968. This disappeared from the Tube, but I've managed to find almost all of it reposted there or elsewhere.  His band warms up the crowd with the instrumental "Soulfinger," but Pickett electrifies from the moment he enters for "Everybody Needs Somebody" and doesn't let up through "Ninety-Nine and a Half (Won't Do)," "Mustang Sally" and "Stagger Lee." He takes it down just a half-notch for "I'm In Love" before cranking it back into top gear for "Funky Broadway," during which people dancing in front of the stage start turning up o­nstage (And why not? This rawks almost as hard as The Who's cover of "Shakin' All Over").  The tumultuous finale of "Land of 1000 Dances" from amid the crowd remains missing, but this other "Land of 1000 Dances" from 1966 is almost as wild, and in color to boot. Raw and riveting; if this can't put you in a weekend state of mind, probably nothing can.
