WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Venom tops the chart with 80MM, a figure likely slightly inflated, but a record October debut, easily besting Gravity's 55.7MM in 2013. Such is Marvel's power that a Sonyverse movie with a low Tomatometer score can rule so decisively, though it was undoubtedly aided by the general lack of serious competition. A Star Is Born places with an impressive 41.3MM (more than its 36MM production budget), effectively kicking off awards season in the sense that it will rack up tons of nominations, though the number of wins outside musical categories will depend greatly on the competition. Smallfoot shows with 14.9MM on a leggy 35 percent drop, putting it on track to recoup its reported 80MM production budget in theaters. Night School drops 55 percent from the tops to the fourth slot with 12.3MM; it will still be profitable. The House with a Clock in its Walls rounds out the Top five with 7.3MM; the worldwide receipts here project out to 100MM, which is probably fine against a 42MM budget with non-blockbuster marketing costs.

...with THE LEMONHEADS!  Evan Dando's songbook has always struck me as autmnal, though not all of it really is.  For example, a very young Dando released his take on Suzanne Vega's hit "Luka" in May '89.  He dissolved the band after releasing the Lovey LP, but returned with a new lineup on "It's A Shame About Ray" in July '92. Despite Johnny Depp's appearance in that video, the Ray album lingered in the lower reaches of the charts, despite being filled with grunge-pop goodness like "Rockin' Stroll" and "Confetti."  But that November, Atlantic released the band's take on Simon & Garfunkel's "Mrs. Robinson," which shot to No. 19 on the UK charts and landed Dando unlikely US gigs like "Live with Regis and Kathie Lee."  The flip side of that single was the goofy "Being Around," which becomes a singalong live.  The followup LP, C'mon, Feel the Lemonheads, hit the Top 5 in the UK, but only No. 56 in the US, with the single "Into Your Arms," which would later turn up on the soundtrack to Before Sunrise and in an FTD commercial.  The other two videos from the LP, like "Ray," sport celeb cameos -- Angelina Jolie turns up in "It's About Time" and a young Chloë Sevigny can be seen in "Big Gay Heart".  Unfortunately, Dando would soon slide into heavy drugs and the next album, Car Button Cloth was not nearly as successful -- commercially or artistically.  An unremarkable solo album and sporadic gigs would follow, until Dando got his personal life together and revived The Lemonheads brand with a self-titled LP in 2005, from which "Black Gown" was the lead track.  BONUS:  Dando and Mudhoney's Mark Arm fromted the DKT-MC5 on a ripping version (is there any other kind) of the classic "Kick Out the Jams" on The Late Late Show.
