....with THE BEATLES!  John, Paul, George and Ringo invaded America in early February 1964, so I thought video from that month would be fun.

NOT LITERALLY, but there's remarkably little non-football news of any urgency. Here are a few items, anyway:

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Split threepeats atop the chart with 14.6MM on a 43 percent drop that should be considered leggy for the weekend of The Big Game. It's allready approaching 100MM domestic against a 9MM production budget and will almost certainly become M Night Shymalayan's biggest hit since Signs.  It also beat out genre competition from the debut of Rings, which placed with 13MM against a 25MM production buget (which matters a lot given that the prior sequel opened more than 20MM higher).  A Dog's Purpose showed with 10.8MM and 32.9MM domestic against a 22MM production budget.  Hidden Figures takes the fourth slot with 10.1MM on a remarkably leggy 28 percent drop. Hidden Figures now has 119MM domestic against a 25MM budget and is just starting to openwide overseas.  La La Land again rounds out the Top Five with another 7.5MM with 118MM domestic and another 150MM overseas to date.

BLACK SABBATH ostensibly played their final concert, in Birmingham.

THE DIRECTORS GUILD of AMERICA AWARDS went to these folks. Congrats!  La La Land's Damien Chazelle took home the top prize. Friend of the blog Steven Zaillian also took home a prize.

TWIN PEAKS dropped another teaser trailer, featuring clips from the original series.

PATTON OSWALD said Friday that coroner's officials informed him that his wife died last year from a combination of prescription medications and an undiagnosed heart condition.

RYAN REYNOLDS gave a lapdance while receiving the Man of the Year award Harvard's Hasty Pudding Theatricals group.

NICOLAS CAGE crashed a tribute film festival about himself, because he's Nic Cage. He also did an 11-minute reading of Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart."

BLACK LIGHTNING is headed to the CW.

MARC SPITZ, longtime New York-based SPIN writer, novelist and playwright has died. He was 47.

PUPPY BOWL: Team Fluff crushed Team Ruff, 93-38.

See y'all Tuesday!
