NEVERTHELESS, I HAVE SOME THINGS:

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Mission: Impossible - Fallout repeats atop the chart with 35MM on a mere 43 percent drop, less of a drop than Rogue Nation in its second frame.It's on track to be the franchise's biggest domestic grosser.  Christopher Robin placed with 25MM, which means it needs to be a little leggy to make bank against a reported 75MM budget; in the dog days, it could happen. The Spy Who Dumped Me shows with12.4MM against a 40MM budget and likely disappoints in its big screen run.  Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! takes the fourth slot with 9MMon a 40 percent drop; it's currently outrunning the original, but the size of the drops suggests it will wind up short of the first one. The Equalizer 2 rounds out the Top Five with another 8.8MM on a 37 percent drop; it may match the original's 101.5MM domestic.

ANGELINA JOLIE denies splitting with her lawyer as the legal battle with Brad Pitt "enters a new phase."

PATRICK STEWART will reprise his Next Generation role as Jean-Luc Picard more than two decades after the syndicated favorite wrapped its run.

DEMI LOVATO wants to focus on sobriety and almost certainly rehab

HAYDEN PANETIERRE & WAYNE KLITCHKO  have chosen to end their engagement and break up.

ELLE FANNING & MAX MINGHELLA: Dating rumors.

THE FACTS OF LIFE: A reboot is in the works with help from Leonardo DiCaprio and Jessica Biel.Meanwhile, Charlotte Rae, who endeared herself to a generation of TV fans as the affable Mrs. Garrett on the long-running NBC sitcom, died Sunday at her home in Los Angeles. She was 92.

THE FIRST ATOMIC BOMB WAS DROPPED ON HIROSHIMA on this date in 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.  Hard to find tho.

THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

...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."
