WEEKEND BOX OFFICE:  Abominable tops the chart with 20.9MM, another in a long string of hits for Universal this year. This one had a diverse domestic audience and also should travel well overseas. Downton Abbey (from Focus, a Universal branch) places with 14.5MM, on a 53 percent decline that's closer to 46 percent once you account for Thursday night premiere numbers; that seems pretty good for a likely front-loaded pic with a cult fan base. Hustler, which was fifth last week, shows with11.5MM on a 32 percent drop in an already profitable run. It: Chapter Two takes the fourth slot with another 10.4MM on a 39 percent drop as it heads for 200MM domestic (and perhaps a second wind as Halloween approaches?).  Ad Astra rounds out the Top Five with 10.1MM on a 47 percent drop, which seems disappointing.

...with THE GO-GOs!  They made history as the first all-female band that both wrote their own songs and played their own instruments to top the Billboard album charts. Kind of a hard band to place seasonally. Their debut, Beauty and the Beat, which yielded hits like "Our Lips Are Sealed" and "We Got the Beat," as well as great album cuts like "This Town," "Lust to Love," "Tonite" and "How Much More," came out in late Summer 1981, iirc, and "Lips" was climbing the charts that Fall, so I mentally place the band in this time of year. And it's still warm enough that the title track to the too-quick sophomore album, "Vacation," -- or their cover of the Capitols' "Cool Jerk" -- doesn't sound too out of place. "Get Up and Go" was also a single from that LP, but it didn't make the Top 40.  The band would chart twice more -- in 1984, with "Head Over Heels" and "Turn to You" -- before splitting and the near-inevitable reunion tours.
