KarlPATE REUNION WATCH: Conditions have created a significant risk of a band reunion occurring in early July 2013. Pate is looking for input from friends and fans via the Claude Pate Facebook page.  I have also set up and will monitor PateBlog on the Twitter, as well as PateBlog -at- aol.com for email (laugh at the aol, but why not be period?). We'll also be looking to set up additional lines of communication as needed and as plans warrant.  The last reunion was great; get involved to help get another one rolling!

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Hobbit took in 36.9 million over the regular weekend -- a 56 percent drop that means the cineplex better hope for help from Santa. Jack Reacher placed with a lukewarm 15.6 million against a 60 million budget.  This Is 40 showed anemically with a 12 million debut, though the 35 million budget suggests this likely won't be in the red. Rise of the Guardians rode the family audience to hang in at the fourth slot with 5.9 million; worldwide receipts and home video will likely make this one profitable in the long run.  Lincoln rounds out the Top 5 with 5.5 million, succeeding artistically and financially.  Below the fold, The Guilt Trip had a 6th place debut of only 5.4 million, though the 40 million budget suggests it won't be a disaster if it can linger into mid-January.

He was 90.
