GLADYS KNIGHT is backed on "Midnight Train to Georgia" by Jack Black, Ben Stiller and Robert Downey Jr., through the magic of CGI, to promote Tropic Thunder back in 2008.

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

INDIE BASEMENT will point you to the Allah-Lahs, Elbow, The Wedding Present, and more.

ANIMAL COLLECTIVE debuted a bunch of new songs over the weeekend.

JULIEN BAKER shares “Tokyo” and “Sucker Punch.”

 

BRITTANY HOWARD nails "Stay High" on Corden.

EDDIE VAN HALEN is reportedly undergoing surgery for throat cancer.

THE BLACK CROWES : Chris and Rich Robinson may reunite, but not with the full band.

GARY GLITTER, as it turns out, will not profit from Joker.

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.

RONAN FARROW claims NBC paid settlements to Matt Lauer’s victims for years. Farrow's producer says Peacock execs Lack and Oppenheim "behaved more like members of Weinstein’s PR team than the journalists they claim to be."

GROUCH has a trailer online.

ELTON JOHN answers questions from famous fans, including Bob Dylan.

HUGH GRANT would like to register a complaint.

GAL GADOT will star as Irena Sendler, a Polish woman credited with saving 2,500 Jewish children from the Holocaust.

JANE FONDA has moved to D.C. for the next few months, and plans to get arrested at the Capitol every Friday through the end of the year.

 

A PUPPY adopts a stray kitten.

FAKE NEWS about a dog in the New York Times, circa 1908.

A DOG missing for 12 years from Orlando turns up in Pittsburgh.
