WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: 300: Rise of an Empire tops the chart with 45 million. The good news is that this was slightly better than studio projections.  The bad news is that 45 million is against a 110 million budget, while the original had a 70.9 million debut against a 60 million budget.  A sequel to a hit should open bigger, not dramatically smaller.  This one likely has to gross 300 million worldwide to profit; and will likely make just about that amount. Mr Peabody and Sherman placed with 32.5 million against a 140 million budget; even with another 40 million in overseas grosses already, this looks like a risk which may not pay off.  Family movies can be leggy, but Mr Peabody faces the Muppets two weekends hence. Non-Stop shows with 15.4 million on an okay 47 percent drop; Neeson's latest has grossed 72 million world wide so far against a 50 million budget.  The Lego Movie drops to the fourth slot under pressure from Mr Peabody, but takes in another 11 million for a worldwide total of 360.4 million against a 60 million budget.  Son Of God rounds out the Top 5 with 10 million on a 61 percent drop; given that most of it was taken from a mini-series and had its 22 million budget, that 41.4 million total likely looks pretty good.

... with BLONDIE! "One Way or Another," they're gonna getcha.  Maybe with the new wavey material like that song or their cover of the Nerves' "Hanging On the Telephone."  Maybe with the Eurodisco sound of "Heart of Glass," "Call Me" or "Rapture."  But for me, it's the pop anthems like "Union City Blue" and "Dreaming," both propelled by the frenetic drumming of Clem Burke, who is clearly a fan of Keith Moon, right down to the pantomiming in that last TOTP clip.
