JOHN HURT, an unprepossessing British character actor who vanished inside dozens of roles, including in Alien, Crime and Punishment, I Claudius, V For Vendetta, The Elephant Man, 1984, Spaceballs , three Harry Potter flicks and many more, died on Wednesday in Norfolk, England. He was 77.  Here's 143 roles in 4 minutes.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Split repeats atop the chart with 26.3MM on a fantastically-leggy-for-horror 34 percent drop; it's the first M Night Shyamalan film to do so since Signs.  And Split crossed the 100MM mark worldwide against a 9MM production budget. A Dog's Purpose placed with 18.4MM against a 22MM budget, within the range of projections.  Hidden Figures showed with 14MM on a leggy 11 percent drop, likely buoyed by those 3 Oscar nominations.  It too crossed the 100MM mark, against a 25MM budget.  Resident Evil: The Final Chapter took the fourth slot with 13.9MM, a low mark for debuts in this franchise, though it has already grossed another 65MM overseas.  La La Land rounded out the Top Five with 12MM, growing 43 percent over last weekend, as the musical expanded by 1271 screens and rode the big Oscar buzz. It's closing in on a quarter-billion worldwide.  Below the fold, Gold flopped its way into tenth place.

SPLIT, btw, is a very solid horror pic and thus I hesitate in saying it's a "return to form" for M Night Shyamalan, other than financially; I always saw him as not a straight-up horror director.  It doesn't have a twist ending so much a surprise ending, albeit one that fans of the old Night will much appreciate.  And James McAvoy does have a great deal of fun chewing things up as the heavy here.

MARY TYLER MOORE, whose witty and graceful performances on two top-rated television shows in the 1960s and ’70s helped define a new vision of American womanhood, died on Wednesday in Greenwich, Conn.
