THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

... with GRAM PARSONS! As a member of both The Byrds and The Flying Burrito Brothers, and as a solo artist, Parsons anticipated the so-called country rock of the 1970s and the alt-country movement that began around 1990. There is not a lot of GP video floating around, but "Christine's Tune" is a good place to start, though the video for "Older Guys" is great because someone made them go out to christen Judge Smails' sloop. The Hell's Angels make an unfortunate cameo in the clip of "Six Days o­n the Road" from the infamous Altamont festival in 1969. The posthumous video for "Sin City" is nice also. BONUS: Dwight Yoakum covers "Wheels" at a Parsons tribute concert. DOUBLE BONUS: Frequent duet partner Emmylou Harris covers "Return of the Grievous Angel" with Ryan Adams (and Buddy Miller o­n bass) at a different tribute.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Good Boys tops the chart with 21MM, far surpassing gurus' estimates of 12-15MM and (iirc) the best original comedy opening of the year.  Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw places 14.1MM on a 44 percent drop; it's still doing far better overseas, so it the next F & F does well, we'll probably get another one of these.  The Lion King shows with 11.9MM on a 41 percent drop as it creeps up on 500MM domestic.  The Angry Birds Movie 2 debuts in the fourth slot with 10.5MM and 16.2MM since its Tuesday opening; that larger figure is less than half of its predecessor, despite better reviews, so ouch.  Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark rounds out the Top Five with 10MM on a 52 percent drop. Below the fold were three major new releases: 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, Blinded by the Light, and Where'd You Go, Bernadette. None had a large budget, but still a bit ouchy.
