NEW RELEASES: Pitchfork will point you to Big Thief, Kim Gordon, Richard Dawson, and more.

THE NUMBER ONES looks at Daryl Hall & John Oates' class-warfare-themed blue-eyed soul jam, "Rich Girl."

 

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE:  Joker repeats atop the chart with 55MM on a 42 percent drop that's leggy for the superghero genre (esp. DC films). At 192MM domestic, it has already outgrossed Justice League. And it's done another 351MM overseas already.  The Addams Family places with 30.3MM, probably boosted by the Columbus Day holiday weekend and the Halloween season generally.  That's pretty good againt a very modest reported budget of 40MM, esp when you consider most of the kids seeing it don't even know about the 90s reboot, let alone the 60s series.  Get off my lawn.  Gemini Man shows in its debut with 20.5MM against a 138MM budget; it made almost twice as much overseas tho.  Abominable slides to the fourth slot with 6.2MM on a 48 percent drop; it finally opened in China, lifting the gross to over 100MM worldwide.  Downton Abbey rounds out the Top Five with another 4.9MM on a 39 percent drop; its 120MM worldwide grosss against a 20MM budget is one of the bigger returns on investment this year.

ROBERT FORSTER, the journeyman actor whose comeback role as a bail bondsman in Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown earned him an Oscar nomination, and who drew acclaim for his tough-guy performances on the television series “Breaking Bad” and the reboot of “Twin Peaks,” died on Friday at his home in Los Angeles. He was 78. He's remembered by Quentin Tarantino and David Lynch.
