WEEKEND BOX OFFICE:Star Trek Into Darkness tops the chart with 70.6 million over the weekend and 84 million since Wednesday. This is actually at the low end of projections, which may reflect the continued strength of the competition (particularly Iron Man 3) and the tendency of the pre-Memorial Day weekend to be relatively weak (making one second-guess Paramount's choice of release date).  STID may yet have the legs of its predecessor, but one would typically expect a sequel to a successful franchise reboot to open bigger and this one didn't, especially accounting for Wednesday opening and the 3-D and IMAX ticket premium. STID also took in 31.7 overseas and those numbers may end up more important this time (the 2009 reboot was not proportionately big overseas).  Iron Man 3 places with 35.2 million and becomes te fourth fastest film to break the 300 million mark domestically.  The Great Gatsby shows with 23.4 million on a 53 percent drop that likely causes sighs of relief at the WB.  Gatsby now has 90.2 million domestic against a 105 million budget (after Aussie subsidies).Pain And Gain hangs in at No.4 with 3.1 million.  The Croods again rounds out the Top 5 with 2.8 million.

THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

...with DEVO!  It's Friday, so here they are on Fridays (ABC's ill-fated attempt to ape SNL) in 1980, playing "Girl U Want" and "Gates of Steel," along with "Whip It" and "Uncontrollable Urge" -- each with costume changes.  The band returned in 1981, where they played "Theme From Adventures of The Smart Patrol" and "Jerkin' Back 'n' Forth," followed by "I Saw Jesus" and "Through Being Cool," then their cover of "Working in a Coal Mine."  BONUS: Vintage Devo, covering "Satisfaction" on French TV.

WILL OLDHAM, ranked by Stereogum.

STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS is dedicated to our post-9/11 veterans, and it's fairly easy to see why.  As the title suggests, JJ Abrams' second outing with the Enterprise touches on our darker post-9/11 impulses and our efforts to overcome them (that said, it's not a particularly political film; it's more spice for the stew).  Like another ST sequel -- The Wrath of Khan -- this one is also about how much to follow protocols, taking personal responsibility, the danger of hubris to hero and villain alike, and sacrifice.  That list, btw, is not all-inclusive, if you know what I mean and I think that you do.  Aside from the returning cast, Bendedict Cumberbatch (BBC's Sherlock) is sufficiently badass as the terrrorist "John Harrison" wink wink and Alice Eve is fetching, even with an accent ill-suited to her character.  Near the end, there is a moment -- a very short line of dilaogue -- as wrong as it is inevitable, and I wish the screenwriters had figured out how to do it better.  Otherwise, a fine piece of popcorn fare sure to be enjoyed by those who liked the ST reboot, and perhaps even by some who were less than charmed by the last one.

ANGELINA JOLIE is also planning to undergo surgery to remove her ovaries.
