SCOTT WALKER, one of the most innovative and enduring songwriters of the 20th century, has died aged 76. Walker first came to fame in the mid-1960s in the group the Walker Brothers, before creating a string of acclaimed solo albums – Scott, Scott 2, Scott 3 and Scott 4 – that are regarded as some of the most adventurous and boundary-pushing pop albums of the era. He was pop's great adventurer. Thom Yorke, Boy George, Doug Gillard (GbV), Johnny Marr, Graham Coxon, Sonic Youth and Car Seat headrest were among the many musicians paying tribute. NME lists David Bowie and other artists inflenced by Walker. In fact, here's Bowie coveringWalker's "Nite Flights."

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Jordan Peele's Us tops the chart with 70MM, a record opening for an original horror film, and the third best horror debut ever. It's already a big success, but it will be interesting to see how much it falls next weekend, given pent-up demand for the movie and a mere "B" CinemaScore. Captain Marvel finally slides to No. 2, placing with 35MM on a 49 percent drop that might concern Marvel if not for the fact it's already made 910MM worldwide. Wonder Park shows with 9MM on a 43 percent drop. Five Feet Apart takes the fourth slot with 8.8MM on a 34 percent drop. How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World rounds out the Top Five (and likely nears exhaustion) with 6.5MM; the threequel will likely wind up a few million short of the sequel.

SHAZAM! is getting strong early reviews from Variety, The Hollywood Reporter (mostly), and IndieWire.
