WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Suicide Squad tops the chart with 135.1MM. Given the excellent marketing campaign and advance sales, the real question is whether it mostly sustains this biz next weekend or slides like Batman v Superman. Given the terrible reviews and B+ Cinemascore (BvS got a 'B'), that question remains wide open. The difference between the 3:1 multiplier from the opening of of a true blockbuster and the 2:1 multiplier of BvS is the difference between success and failure, and that may be true even if you consider ancillary merch sales.  Word is Suicide Squad needs to make 700-800MM worldwide to profit as a movie; so far it has 267MM worldwide. Jason Bourne places with 22.7MM on a 62 percent drop, raising the question of why this was released right before Suicide Squad. Bad Moms shows with 14.2MM; with 56MM worldwide, this modestly-budgeted comedy has probably reached the breakeven point. The Secret Life of Pets takes the fourth slot with another 11.6MM added to its very successful run, which crossed 500MM this weekend.  Star Trek Beyond rounds out the Top Five with10.2MM on a 59 percent drop in only its third weekend, another victim of the Suicide Squad, yet to cross the 200MM mark worldwide when it needs 500MM (give or take merch sales). Below the fold, Nine Lives, the weekend’s second wide entry, is road kill in sixth with 6.5M against a 30MM budget.

THE FIRST ATOMIC BOMB WAS DROPPED ON HIROSHIMA on Aug. 6, 1945. The act that ushered in the nuclear age, but also helped end World War II, still stokes controversy. Three men involved in the attack o­n Hiroshima share their memories with the BBC. Film showing the effects of the attack was classified for decades, as were the complete (unredacted) "Magic" military intercepts, which tend to show Japan was not about to surrender. Those interested in a relatively neutral view of the events leading to the bombing could do worse than 1995's Hiroshima, a joint Canadian-Japanese production for Showtime.  Out-of-print, possibly costly.

...with JOHN HUGHES! The sportos, motorheads, geeks, sluts, buds, wasteoids, dweebies and dickheads, they all adore him. They think he's a righteous dude. The writer/director behind Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Weird Science, National Lampoon's Vacation movies, Home Alone, Planes, Trains & Automobiles and many more died Aug 6, 2009.  Hughes masterfully married music to movies, so I pay video tribute to him today, starting (of course) with "Don't You Forget About Me" by Simple Minds from The Breakfast Club (the drumming o­n this song is impeccable), and Karla DeVito's "We Are Not Alone," along with the Ramones playing "Blitzkrieg Bop" (from National Lampoon's Vacation), David Bowie's "Young Americans" and The Vapors o­ne-hit wonder, "Turning Japanese" and Billy Idol's "Rebel Yell" (all from Sixteen Candles, which opens to a clip of veteran WLS DJs Larry Lujack and Tommy Edwards), Van Halen's cover of "(Oh) Pretty Woman" and General Public's "Tenderness" (both from Weird Science), the Psychedelic Furs re-recorded title track from Pretty In Pink, which also featured Jon Cryer lip-synching to Otis Redding's "Try A Little Tenderness" (that last clip is a blistering live take from the 1967 Stax tour -- and excellent, btw), The Smiths' "Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want" (a Hughes perennial; here, the Dream Academy cover from FBDO), and OMD's "If You Leave," plus two more from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, "Danke Schoen" and "Twist and Shout" (which was shot o­n Dearborn and Randolph Streets in Chicago, with International Polka Queen Vlasta atop the float, though Cameron and Sloane were in front of the Post Office down the street), plus Yello's unforgettable-no-matter-how-you-try "Oh, Yeah." Videos are scarce for Some Kind of Wonderful, but I found Flesh for Lulu's "I Go Crazy" and the March Violets' take on the Stones' "Miss Amanda Jones."
