THE EASTER WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

... with THE B-52s!  Live at the Capitol Theater, circa 1980.  Your setlist includes: Lava, Give Me Back My Man, 6060-842, Devil In My Car, 52 Girls, Quiche Lorraine, Dirty Back Road, Private Idaho, Strobe Light, Runnin' Around, Rock Lobster, Dance This Mess Around, Planet Claire, Party Out Of Bounds, Downtown, and 53 Miles West Of Venus.

THE ACES advance stream When My Heart Felt Volcanic.

DR OCTOGON advance streams Moosebumps: An Exploration Into Modern Day Horripilation.

PATTI SMITH plays the Mountain Stage.

BELLY shares "Stars Align."

CHVRCHES shares "Never Say Die."

MURRAY HEAD: "One Night In Bangkok." Mostly for the sheer 80s cheesiness, but also because today this is a blog with everything, including Yul Brynner.

DAVID BYRNE surveys the soundtrack of his life at Pitchfork.

ICEAGE talks to Stereogum about heir new album Beyondless and fumbling towards inspiration.

SUEDE's debut turns 25.

THE NUMBER ONES looks at Pat Boone's godawful teenage-suicide tragedy "Moody River."

NOW SHOWING: This weekend's wide releases include Ready Player One, which is currently scoring 77 percent on the ol' Tomatometer; Tyler Perry's Acrimony, which was not screened for critics, and God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness, scoring 20 percent.

REN & STIMPY creator John Kricfalusi allegedly preyed on young female fans and had a 16-year-old girlfriend.

WESTWORLD dropped a Season 2 trailer.

RYAN SEACREST's accuser has filed a police report.

SARAH JESSICA PARKER may not support Cynthia Nixon's campaign for governor of New York, and her silence dooms any possibility of a third Sex and the City movie.

JUSTIN THEROUX: Moving on from Jennifer Aniston with... Aubrey Plaza?  Or ar they just old friends from Parks and Rec?

ALISON MACK: Is a Smallville alum in danger of being arrested in a sex trafficking case?

JESSICA CHASTAIN talks to Vulture about Salomé, Al Pacino, nudity and more.

WHY IS THIS SATURDAY DIFFERENT FROM ALL OTHER DAYS?  Because ABC has its annual showing of The Ten Commandments, a grand spectacle featuring acting from Edward G. Robinson and Anne Baxter that is so over-the-top that Yul Brynner starts to look good by comparison.  And while Robinson's Dathan never actually spoke the line "Where's your Messiah now?" in the movie, it  -- like "Play It Again, Sam" (not spoken in Casablanca) -- has become part of a part of our culture. The line actually comes from Billy Crystal, originally a bit from the Oscars, iirc. It later turned up o­n The Simpsons, with Chief Wiggum playing Dathan to Ned Flanders' Moses.

READY PLAYER ONE is a Steven Spielberg film adapted from a book clearly inspied byt eh peak blockbuster version of Spielberg -- and arena where Spielberg has not often played lately.  And perhaps it is all of this -- or the virtual relaity where much of the action occurs -- that gives off a slight feeling of virtual Spielberginess.  Or prehaps Spielberg is now at a place in his life where he cannot tap into that vintage Spielberg thing in exactly the same ways as decades ago. But he remains a master directo, and so even the virtual Spielberg is quite entertaining, and generally better than others who have tried to be virtual Spielberg (looking at you, J.J.).  Obviously, it's more fun the more rooted you are in the pop culture of the 80s and early 90s, but with plenty for those who are not.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Pacific Rim: Uprising tops the chart with 28MM, which seems bad against a 150MM budget, unti you note that it also made 122MM in foreign markets (mostly China), following the pattern of the original. Black Panther finally drops a notch to place with 16.7MM, with 631MM total domestically, entering the Top Five of all-time, and likely to wind up third (at least until Infinity War comes out).  I Can Only Imagine shows with 13.8MM on a leggy 19 percent drop; the faith-based flick now totals 38MM against a 7MM budget.  Sherlock Gnomes opened in the fourth slot with 10.6MM, which is probably a disappointment against a 59MM budget.  Tomb Raider rounds out the Top Five with 10.4MM on a 56 percent drop in its second frame... but foreign grosses may bail it out.
