WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Jungle Book threepeats atop the chart with 42.4MM, on a leggy 31 percent drop...but Captain America: Civil War will almost certainly be king of the cinema jungle next weekend. Of course, they're both from Disney, so the House of Mouse won't be terribly distraught. The Huntsman: Winter's War places a distant second with 9.39MM on a steep 52 percent drop from what was already a bad debut. Keanu shows close behind with an estimated 9.35MM (and could squeak into second when the actual receipts are tallied), which should be fine against a 15MM production budget, given that it's more likely to play as counter programming to the Marvel juggernaut over the ext few weeks.  Mother's Day, otoh,debuted in the fourth slot with 8.3MM against a 25MM budget, which means it must do boffo biz next weekend to have a shot at profit in theaters. Barbershop: The Next Cut rounds out the Top Five with 6.1MM, which continues to disappoint, though it should reach profit on the big screen.

...with THE dB's!  Although the influential, but oh-so-unlucky modern pop combo will likely stress new material when I see them tonight, we have vintage video of "Happenstance," "Bad Reputation" and "Living A Lie" from Sweden circa 1982.  From the studio, we have the clip for "Neverland." Chris Stamey left the band (temporarily) after which we got the infamous, banned-from-MTV clip for "Amplifier," plus live takes of "She Got Soul" and "Not Cool" from the legendary Maxwell's in Hoboken, NJ circa 1986.  From the same time period, you can see the band help close down Folk City in NYC with a cover of Bob Dylan's "Positively 4th Street."
