ADELE dropped a video for "Hello" ahead of 25, to mixed reviews. Lionel Richie got in on the act.

THE CHILLS advance stream Silver Bullets a mere 19 years after their last LP.

FOXING advance streams Dealer.

ALL SONGS CONSIDERED: Bob Boilen features his picks to click from the CMJ showcases.

TITUS ANDRONICUS played World Cafe Live; Patrick Stickles did a matching interview in-studio.

THE SMASHING PUMPKINS:  Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness turned 20, so how about some "1979."

JOE MOSS, who managed The Smiths and Johnny Marr died following a struggle with bone cancer. He was 72.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Martian returned to the top of the chart with 15.9MM, as the weekend's new releases underperformed.  Ridley Scott & Co. dropped a mere 25 perecent, which is a leggy hold indeed for a fourth weekend. The Martian is likely already profitable and does not open in China until Nov. 25.  Goosebumps places with 15.5MM on an alright 34 percent drop; it will likely have to do a bit better overseas than here to profit in theaters.  Bridge of Spies shows again with 11.4MM on a leggy 26 percent drop. The Last Witch Hunter debuted in the fourth slot with 10.8MM against a reported 90MM budget; word is Lionsgate sold off much of their exposure on this seeming flop.  Hotel Transylvania 2 rounds out the Top 5with 9MM on a leggy 29 percent  drop in its fifth weekend. Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension opened in sixth with 8.25 million --which would normally be okay for the famously lo-budgeted franchis, but this one reportedly cost 10MM, so it's a good thing it's headed to video-on-demand in two weeks. Steve Jobs was expected to win the weekend but landed in seventh place with 7.3MM; even so, this may not hurt too bad against a 30MM budget.  New releases Rock the Kasbah and Jem and the Holograms opened in 13th and 15th place, respectively.

LAMAR ODOM suffered 12 strokes early on in his medical emergency. Did his management recommend dangerous hookers?

HARRY POTTER & THE CURSED CHILD is the eighth story in the series...and it's a stage production.

STAR WARS: THE BINKS AWAKENS.

SYRIAN government and Russian jets have been heavily bombarding towns in Idlib province, as fighting rages between pro-Assad forces and opposition fighters in several other provinces. CIA-armed rebels have made some advances.

AFGHANISTAN, battered by worsening security, is reaching out to an old ally and patron—Russia.

ADELE drops a snippet from her upcoming LP.

LENARD COHEN: "Suzanne" is perhaps his best, and it was posted online by...Jan Hammer?

PHIL LESH of the Grateful Dead has been diagnosed with bladder cancer.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Goosebumps tops the chart with 23.5MM, leveraging the Halloween season to give Jack Black his best live-action debut since Tropic Thunder. The Martian cedes the top spot and places with 21.5MM; this should finish between 400MM and half a billion worldwide.  Bridge of Spies shows with a slightly surprising 15.4MM against a thrifty 40MM budget.  The debut of Crimson Peak takes the fourth slot with 12.9MM against a 55MM budget and may have difficulty profiting on the big screen absent healthier overseas receipts.  Hotel Transylvania 2 rounds out the Top 5 with 12.3MM, which isn't bad considering the arrival of Goosebumps.

CRIMSON PEAK: "It is not a ghost story; it is a story with a ghost in it."  This is what the asiping author played by Mia Wasikowska tells one character in a description almost equally applicable to the latest film from Guillerrmo del Toro.  As such, it walks the line between horror and gothic thriller --which may be the root of its financial problems, tbh--but suited me alright.  There is the ssort of tortured romance one finds in a gothic tale when Tom Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain, playing siblings, arrive from England to disturb Wasikowskain upstate New York.  Hiddleston is best known for plaing Loki in the Marvel franchises, but he got that gig in part because he has the acting chops to match Chastain and Wasikowska (who is no stranger to gothis, having starred in the recent Jane Eyre, though you may know her as Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland). Though the big scares are few, del Toro remains a powerful visual stylist (see everything from Pan's Labyrinth to Pacific Rim), and he constantly gives the audience interesting and occasionally stunning images in this film. The acting and the visuals carried Crimson Peak for me; just don't expect to be on the edge of your seat.

LAMAR ODOM's condition has been improving, but he still remains in ICU after waking up from his four-day coma on Friday.
