WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Doctor Strange was the cinema's Sorcerer Supreme with an 85MM debut that sits just below the top ten November openings ever, and just about where Thor: the Dark World opened in the same month.Benedict Cumberbatch's films have tended to play quite well overseas, so the good doctor could rake in as much as 750MM in global sales by the end of its run (and roughly a third of that would be profit against a 165MM production budget).  Trolls placed with 45MM, which is probably alright against a 125MM budget, so long as thee 100MM oversaes grosses to date are indicative.  Hacksaw Ridge showed with a 14.8MM debu, which is probably pretty good against a 40MM budget, considering the lingering Mel Gibson controversy and competing with a Marvel opening.  Boo! A Madea Halloween predictably slides 55 percent and takes in 7.8MM and almost certainly breaks into profitability.  Inferno tanks 58 percent in its second frame, rounding out the Top Five with 6.3MM and 26MM domestic total against a 75MM budget; its 159MM in foreign sales will save this from flopping.

BRANGELEXIT: Brad Pitt has just set the stage for a custody war ... asking for joint custody of the 6 kids he shares with Angelina Jolie.

PETER GABRIEL: Ten of His Best.

NOW SHOWING: This weekend's wide releases include Trolls, which is currently scoring 76 percent on the ol' Tomatometer; Doctor Strange, which is currently scoring 90 percent; and Hacksaw Ridge, scoring 89 percent.

DOCTOR STRANGE: I'm not the first to observe that this latest origin tale has echoes of Marvel Studios' first origin tale -- 2008's Iron Man.  After all, Stephen Strange's personality, problems, and journey to heroics are not terribly different from those of Tony Stark, though set against a backdrop of mysticism rather than technology.  And there's a slight echo of the original Thor, insofar as it provides a bridge between the two.  It is thus a tribute to all involved that this film still seems fresh, both in its psychedelia-meets-Inception visuals and in the performances of a strong ensemble led by Benedict Cumberbatch (who manages a variation on brillaint-but-arrogant different from his turns in Sherlock and The Imitation Game).  There are two extra scenes, so be sure to stay past the credits.
