MARK KNOPFLER skips Dire Straits' Hall of Fame induction.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Rampage tops the chart with 34.5MM...but that's kinda weak against a 120MM budget (even though overseas grosses are doing well).  The real story may be that A Quiet Place places with 32.6MM on a leggy (esp for this genre) 35 percent drop; for part of the weekend, it seemed as though it might beat The Rock (one wonders if Rampage is getting some creative accounting in its estmates).  John Krasinski's third film closes in on 100MM after 2 weekends against a 17MM budget.  Truth or Dare shows with 19MM against a 3.5MM budget -- and in its own way, this showing makes A Quiet Place's hold all the more impressive. Ready Player One drops to the fourth slot with 11.2MM on a 55 percent drop; Spielberg can be thankful that foreign markets are soaking in nostalgia for a 1980s many of these countries never experienced in the first place.  Blockers rounds out the Top Five with 10.3MM on a 50 percent drop and will likely make a tdy profit befoe becoming a candidate for cult status (if there is such a thing in the internet era).

MILOS FORMAN, a filmmaker who challenged Hollywood with his subversive touch, and won the Oscar for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and Amadeus, died on Friday. He was 86.
