WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Thor: Ragnarok rescued the box office from its drought with a debut that's 121MM domestic and 306MM in foreign markets.  That's the fourh best opening of 2017, and a sure, substantial moneymaker, though one wonders what happens when Justice League arrives this weekend. A Bad Moms Christmas placed a distant second with 17MM (21MM since its Wednesday opening); that's still fine against a 28MM budget, given the holiday theme may add legs (but should this have opened two weeks later? Hm.).  Jigsaw showed with 6.7MM on a 60 percent slide typical of this franchise; tho this is likely to be the worst performer of the series, 28MM so far against a 10MM budgetis probably profitable.  Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween takes the fourth slot with 4.7MM on another 53 percent decline; this is likely to profit, but short of the last Medea Halloween flick.  Geostorm rounds out the Top Five with 3MM on a 49 percent drop; it's made only 29MM domestic against its 120MM production budget, so it'sa very good thing that it has grossed 153.6MM in foreign markets -- the difference between a brekeven or mild loss and an outright bomb.

THE BEATLES are putting out a Chrstmas box set (which suggests those singles may dry up online).

NOW SHOWING: This weekend's wide releases include Thor: Ragnarok, which is scoring 95 percent on the ol' Tomatometer; and A Bad Moms Christmas, which opened Wednesday scoring 27 percent. LBJ expands near-wide at 53 percent.

THOR: RAGNAROK has already been the subject of a thousand Asgardians of the Galaxy jokes, I presume.  And the tone is in fact pretty much what you get from the trailer.  I can't say I blame Marvel Studios for going this direction.  After all, the Thor movies tended to underperform in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, while the Guardians franchise is second only to those films with Robert Downey, Jr in them.  So if this means Thor has to regress a bit as a character to bring in some cockiness and humor, so be it.  Keep Tom Hiddleston as the scene-chewing Loki, Idris Elba as the heroic Heimdall, toss in the Hulk as a guest star, Tessa Thompson's as a hard-drinking, hard-fighting Valkyrie, and Jeff Goldblum as Jeff Goldblum and you can lard on the humor.  For the most part, all of that works pretty well. Cate Blanchett and Karl Urban are alright, but mostly wasted as the villains because they aren't given all that much to do, really.  Indeed, the overall plot here isn't very much -- just enough to get you to the next Avengers flick (for which you'll want to see the mid-credits bonus scene more than the end of credits bonus scene). But the jokes and the action set pieces land enough and with enough frequency that you won't mind the plot too much.  And I will say that for all the jokes and fights, they actually sneak an interesting idea into the third act.

KEVIN SPACEY is anonymously accused of an extended relationship with a 14-year-old in the 1980s.  Spacey made the set of Netflix's House of Cards into a "toxic" work environment through a pattern of sexual harassment, eight people who currently work on the show or worked on it in the past tell CNN. One former employee told CNN that Spacey sexually assaulted him.  Actors and former staff at the Old Vic have accused the theatre of turning a blind eye to inappropriate sexual behavior by Spacey during the 11 years that the Hollywood star was its artistic director.  He's been dropped by his talent agency and his publicist who of course had no reason to suspect anything like this was going on.
