Very Busy Weekend, but with Monday Things.   Printer-friendly page   Send this story to someone

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Black Panther again tops the chart with another 41.1MM, on a leggy 48 percent drop, which means it will likely crack the all-time Top Five domestically in a couple of weekends and will likely rest at Number Three by the time it's done in theaters.  The debut of A Wrinkle In Time places with 33.3MM, which is likely disappointing against a reported 100MM+ budget.  That said, the top two films this weekend are by black directors with black stars as the House of Mouse brings social progress to the cineplex.  The Strangers: Prey at Night showed with 10.4MM and this seemingly pointless sequel only had a 5MM budget; hence, horror films as the perennial genre.  Red Sparrow slides into fourth with 8.1MM on a 52 percent drop, a performance suggesting that J-Law is not the draw some thought she was outside pre-sold franchises.  Game Night rounds out the Top Five with 7.9MM on a leggy 24 percent drop as the only comedy in town.  Both The Hurricane Heist and Gringo debuted below the fold, at eighth and eleventh, respectively.

...with ROCKPILE, a band that featured old pals Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds cranking out the rootsy pub rock. Let's start with "Teacher, Teacher" and "I Knew the Bride," along with this clip of "Heart," featuring Billy Bremner, which is odd at the start.  And here's the band rolling through Lowe's "So It Goes," and "Heart of the City," plus a cover of Elvis Costello's and "Girls Talk," which many associate more with Edmunds.
