WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Mission: Impossible - Fallout easily tops the chart with 61.5MM, and it may surprise some to learn that this is the best debut of the entire franchise. Mamma Mia: here We Go Again! places again with 15MM on a 57 percent drop (the original dropped only 36 percent in its second frame).  The Equalizer 2 shows with 14MM on an even larger 61 percent drop, an obvious victim of the Tom Cruise machine. Hotel Transylvania 3 takes fourth with another 12.3MM and it now starts to look like the stronger summer weekday numbers aren't carrying over to the weekends. Teen Titans Go!

THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

...with THIN LIZZY! Remember that chick who used to dance a lot? Here's Phil Lynott & Co. live at the Sydney Opera House in 1978, playing "Jailbreak," "Bad Reputation," "Cowboy Song," "The Boys Are Back In Town," "Waiting For An Alibi," and "Are You Ready?"

TONY MOLINA streams Kill the Lights.

LUCERO advance streams Among the Ghosts.

AMANDA SHIRES advance streams To the Sunset.

SHEMEKIA COPELAND advance streams America's Child.

CALVIN JOHNSON shares "Kiss Me Sweetly," ft. his fiancee Michelle Branch.

LORETTA LYNN covers Roger Miller's "Half A Mind."

AEROSMITH: "Train Kept A-Rollin'" At least until Midnight.

THE 2018 MERCURY PRIZE nominees are announced.

FETCH: Nine British acts that America never understood.

VAL CAMILLETTI, who ran one of the great Chicagoland record stores, died in hospice care early Tuesday at the British Home in Brookfield, about two years after being diagnosed with breast cancer. She was 78.

THE NUMBER ONES looks at the Supremes' gloriously formulaic "Stop! In The Name Of Love."

NOW SHOWING: This weekend's wide releases include Mission: Impossible - Fallout, which is currently scoring 97 percent on th ol' Tomatometer; and Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, which is scoring 89 percent.

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT, the sixth installment of the franchise, plays as a bit of a sequel to its predecessor, Rogue Nation. It suffers a little by comparison, but not too much. It lacks set pieces with the distinctiveness of the last one.Yet just about the time I was wondering whether I was going to be disappointed, the second act gives you a terrific car / motorcyle chase, the plot twists several times over, and the stakes get raised on a personal level. Also, Tom Cruise runs-- really fast, for a long time, as he does.  For such a star vehicle, however, Cruise is smart enough to know it's really about the team, with most everyone in the cast gets a good moment or two along the way. And I'm pretty sure that one of the characters is a callback of sorts to the very first of these films in a subtle way.

MICHELLE WILLIAMS secretly wed indie rocker Phil Elverum (Mt Eerie) earlier this month.
