WEEKEND BOX OFFICE:The Predator tops the chart with 24MM, which just about matches 2010's Predators, and falls short of the ~30MM the studio expected. International receipts may be needed to recoup for this 88MM pic. The Nun places with 18.2MM on a 66 percent drop not unknown in horror (that said, 85MM domestic so far against a 22MM budgetlooks alright). A Simple Favor shows with a 16MM debut, probably OK against a reported 20MM budget. White Boy Rick, otoh, debuts in fourth with 8.8MM, which is problematic against a 29MM budget. Crazy Rich Asians rounds out the Top Five with 8.7MM and comes in just below 150MM domestic to date.

...with T.REX! Marc Bolan died on September 17, 1977, so here's a few items off the beaten path, like this working version of "Get It On (Bang A Gong)," which is a little nsfw toward the end.  French TV is the source for live clips of "Hot Love," "Cadillac," "Telegram Sam" and "Jeepster" circa 1972, as well as "Ride A White Swan" from 1970. The band's "Baby Strange" later found its way into Big Star's setlists.  Still, "20th Century Boy" may be my favorite track from the band.
