PUNK FUNERAL: The son of Vivienne Westwood and the late Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren has set fire to an estimated £5m worth of punk memorabilia on a boat on the river Thames.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Disney's Moana topped the holiday box office with 55.5MM over the weekend and 81.1MM since its Wednesday night debut; that's a bit shy of Frozen over similar timframes, but I'm betting the Mouse is verrry happy against a reported 150MM budget. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them placed with a strong 45.1MM (65.8MM over 5 days); this extension of the Potterverse is well on its way to profitability.  Doctor Strange shows with 13.4MM (18.9MM over 5 days), crossing the 200MM mark in North America and reaching 616MM worldwide, suggesting the sorcerer 's magic is in the black already.  The debut of Allied took the fourth slot with 13MM (18MM over 5 days), which means it will need big help overseas to profit against an 85MM production budget.  Arrival rounded outh the Top Five with 11.3MM (15.6MM over 5 days) on a leggy 7 percent drop; the rightly-acclaimed sci-fi that's about so much more than aliens still stands a chance of becoming profitable in theaters.

MOANA: I still find it interesting that Disney animated flicks retain their distinctive Disney-ness under the leadership of fmr Pixar honcho John Lasseter.  Moana plays with the Princess formula a bit and even pokes fun at it in places (stay past the credits for the final example of this), but never disrespectfully.  Moana is reliably charming.  Its score benefits from bringing in Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda as well.  Overall, it's very good, but not great; its artistry, casting and characters may be more memorable than its heroine's journey.  In this case, that's enough to carry the film, but not place it on the top tier of Disney confections.
