A crowded weekend, but I have the Box Office, Jon Pratt. and William Goldman RIP   Printer-friendly page   Send this story to someone

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald tops the chart with 62.2MM, a slice less than the 74.4MM of the last one. This playing more like a sequel than a Potter film, or even a Marvel film. Overseas receipts, where Fantastic Beasts did quite well, will tell the tale of whether this sub-franchise makes it to the originally planned five-film arc.  The Grinch places with 38.2MM on a 44 percent dop, which should be leggy enough to carry it to the real holdiday bonanza next month.  Bohemian Rhapsody shows with 15.7MM on a 50 percent drop as it rocks onward toward 400MM worldwide.  Instant Family takes the fourth slot with 14.7MM against a 48MM budget, suggesting people want Will Ferrell with Wahlberg in this type of vehicle. Widows rounds out the Top Five with 12.3MM against a 42MM budget, which spells trouble for this well-reviewed, well-cast picture.

JON PRATT, Pate's frontman, helped change the face of science on Friday as representatives of more than 60 nations, gathered in Versailles, France, approved a new definition for the kilogram based on the work of Pratt's team at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Not bad for government work.

WILLIAM GOLDMAN, who won Academy Awards for his screenplays for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and All the President’s Men and who, despite being one of Hollywood’s most successful screenwriters, was an outspoken critic of the movie industry, died on Friday in Manhattan. He was 87. Mr. Goldman also wrote the screenplays for popular films like Misery, A Bridge Too Far, The Stepford Wives and Chaplin. He was a prolific novelist as well, and several of his screenplays were adapted from his own novels, notably The Princess Bride and Marathon Man.

...with THE PAISLEY UNDERGROUND!  A two-part (Part 1, Part 2) feature from the Old Grey Whistle Test on L.A.'s psychedelic-flavored, West Coast scene in the mid-80s. Bands featured include the Long Ryders, Prime Movers, Thin White Rope, Pontiac Brothers and the Rain Parade with a 6 minute live version of No Easy Way Down. The Long Ryders get short shrift so I'll add in their later OGWT appearance to play "Looking For Lewis & Clark." The term "Paisley Underground" is believed to have been jokingly coined by Michael Quercio of the band The Three O'Clock, so I'll toss in the clip for "Her Head's Revolving" as a bonus. Other bands associated with the scene not featured include Green On Red -- sometimes likened to The Doors for songs like "Sea of Cortez" -- and The Bangs, a/k/a The Bangles, with an early track, "The Real World."  DOUBLE BONUS: The Guardian Music Blog has a link-rich piece on the Rain Parade and other Paisley Underground bands.
