WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Revenant tops the chart with 16MM on a weekend socked by snowstorm Jonas and wek new releases.  That said, it broke the 100MM barrier domestic lst week, which is good news for a film almost as unforgiving as the Jonas. Star Wars: The Force Awakens places with 14.3MM, a tribute to the franchise's legs after six weekends on the big screen.  Episode VII closes in on 2 billion worldwide and hundreds of millions in toy sales.  Ride Along 2 shows with 13MM, but on areally-steep-for-comedy 63 percent drop.  Even so, it's likely to break even on domestic receipts.  Dirty Grandpa takes the fourth slot with 11.5M, about in line with tracking estimate...but what was De Niro thinking here?  The Boy rounds out the Top Five with 10.7MM, and given how fast horror flicks die off, it may need help from foreign markets to break even.

GLENN FREY, 67, a founding member and guitarist of the Eagles, died in New York City of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia. Here's the Rolling Stone obit, and bandmate Don Henley's tribute.  And here's journalist-turned-filmmaker Cameron Crowe recalling the making of his Rolling Stone cover story on the band (which begins with a cameo from WCFL Superjock Larry Lujack). Most of the Eagles' hits were collaborations, but Frey was the lead vocalist on "Take It Easy", "Peaceful Easy Feeling", "Tequila Sunrise", "Already Gone", "Lyin' Eyes", "New Kid in Town", and "Heartache Tonight," a selection basically consistent twith the notion from interviews that Henley was the darker of the band's two main songwriters.  After the Eagles split, Frey continued to chart with hits including "The Heat Is On", "Smuggler's Blues",and "You Belong to the City."  It may sound at first like I'm speaking ill of the dead if I say I was never a huge Eagles fan. But my parents were fans, along with millions upon millions of people. And if you grew up in the 70s and early 80s, they were an inescapable part of the musical landscape and the culture in general. I have a relationship with Eagles songs that comes from marinating in them to the degree that I cannot say whether it is because I like them (though I do like some of them, I think).  So it is impossible not to feel a sense of loss at Frey's passing, even if it is not the sort of loss I feel over the passing of, say, David Bowie.
