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 alt-country icon Ryan Adams (and Buddy Miller o­n bass) at a different tribute.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Suicide Squad three-peats atop the chart with 20.7MM, in a period historically bad for movies (and for bad movies).That was a 52 percent drop, just a few percent better than what Batman v Superman did in its third frame. Thats said, it's now likely to profit based on worldwide receipts, so this is more a disappointment than a flop.  Sausage Party repeats in second place with 15.3MM on a 55 percent drop that's probably okay for an R-rated animated comedy.  War Dogs shows with a 14.3MM debut, which is probably acceptable against a 40MM budget.  Kubo and the Two Strings takes the fourth slot with a 12.6MM debut against a 60MM budget, which means the foreign theme may have to carry it into foreign markets.  The debut of the thrice-remade Ben-Hur rounds out the Top Five with an 11.4MM debut against a 100MM budget, almost certainly in flop territory, despite backing from two studios for a faith-based production. Ouch.
