Toy Story 4 shows with 14.6MM on a 30 percent drop that's remarkably leggy, given the Circle of Life.  Crawl takes the fourth slot with 6MM on a 50 percent drop, which probably makes it a modest hit on a low budget.  Yesterday rounds out the Top Five with another 5.1MM on a leggy 21 percent drop.  Below the fold, Stuber fell 51 percent to sixth placewith 4MM and 16MM total against a reported 16MM budget.

...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.
