TOMMY KEENE, a veteran singer-songwriter of the new wave and power-pop eras best known for his 1984 alternative-radio hit “Places That Are Gone,” died Wednesday, according to a post on his website.  He was 59.  The Washington Post also has a nice obit, noting that he "melded the gentle melodies of early Beatles records with the hard-driving guitar rock of the Who."  Matthew Sweet, Ted Leo, and Peter Holsapple were among those paying tribute.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE:  Coco dominated the holiday chart with 49MM, and 71MM over the five-day frame; not quite Moana numbers but fine given that this one doesn't have either the Rock or Lin-Manuel Miranda.  Justice League placed with 40.7MM (59.5MM over five days), on a 57 percent drop that is starting to look like a worst-case scenario for the studio (see below),  Wonder showed with 22.3MM (32.2MM) as the surprise hit (69.4MM against a reproeted 20MM budget) takes a very leggy 19 percent drop. Thor: Ragnarok took the fourth slot with 16.8MM (24.2MM) on a leggy 23 percent drop as the Asgardians close in on 800MM worldwide.  Daddy's Home 2 rounded out the Top Five with 13.3MM (18.7MM) on a mere 8 percent drop; this still has an outside chance of cracking 100MM, but the original made it to 150MM.  Below the fold, Murder on the Orient Express was verrry close to edging into the Top Five on a verrry leggy 6 percent drop.  BTW, no wide releases next weekend, traditionally one of the worst weekends of the year.
