A MUSIC NERD'S LAST STAND: You'll pry my CDs out of my cold dead hands.

DAVID WHITE, who formed the doo-wop quartet Danny and the Juniors in the mid-1950s, co-wrote their No. 1 hit “At the Hop” and composed their successful follow-up, “Rock and Roll Is Here to Stay,” died on March 16 in Las Vegas. He was 79.

 

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Shazam! easily topped the chart with 53.5MM(and almost twice that in overseas markets); a few million over the high end of projections and a strong start for a franchise against a 100MM budget. It should do well until the Avengers arrive. The Pet Sematary remake places with 25MM against a 21MM budget, which is solid if not anywhere near Stepehn King's ItDumbo shows with 18.2MM on 60 percent slide, its weakness only amplified by the competition from Shazam! in the family slot. Jordan Peele's Us also takes 58 percent slide into the fourth slot, but after making 152MM domestic against a 200MM budget. Captain Marvel rounds out the Top Five with another 12.6MM after having crossed the Billion-dollar mark worldwide.

SHAZAM!, by the way, is pretty much as advertised, a goofy take on a superhero origin stories that puts just enough spin on the tropes to make it thoroughly enjoyable. There's also the necessary updating, particularly putting Billy Batson in a group home for a parable about family. In an odd way, it is a DC sibling to the Marvel Universe; by playing up the boy-trapped-in-a-superhero's body angle, it is oddly like not only Big, but also the Marvel vibe of "Superhereoes -- they're just like us!" upon which Stan Lee built an empire. Non-devotees are likely to be baffled by the mid-credits scene, but it's a hoot for the diehards.

IDRIS ELBA is in the next Suicide Squad movie, but not as Deadshot.

SOPHIE TURNER is over-critical of her looks, but has interesting thoughts on pay equity.
