‘Quiet Place,’ ‘Rampage’ lead pack at box office

LOS ANGELES

It’s another weekend of buzz versus pure star power at the box office as the word of mouth sensation “A Quiet Place” finds itself neck-and-neck again with Dwayne Johnson’s “Rampage.” This time buzz had the slight advantage.

Studio estimates on Sunday have placed “A Quiet Place,” with $22 million, in first, and “Rampage” in second with $21 million, but it’s possible those numbers may shift when final results are tallied today.

Rounding out the top five were: “I Feel Pretty,” $16.2 million, third place; “Super Troopers 2,” $14.7 million, fourth place; and “Truth or Dare,” $7.9 million, fifth place.

Sweden’s public broadcaster says police in Oman have conducted two autopsies on the body of Grammy-nominated electronic dance DJ Avicii, who died Friday at age 28.

Public broadcaster SVT, citing information from an anonymous police official in Oman, reported Sunday that the autopsies revealed nothing suspicious and foul play has been ruled out in the performer’s death.

The broadcaster says the body has been cleared to be taken back to Avicii’s native Sweden, where he was born as Tim Bergling. Fans in Stockholm observed a minute of silence in his honor Saturday.

Rare Elvis poster sells for more than $42K

RALEIGH, N.C.

A rare vintage poster for a 1955 Elvis Presley show in North Carolina has sold at auction for more than double the expected price.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports the poster for a show May 19, 1955, in Raleigh sold this month for $42,500. Giles Moon of Texas-based Heritage Auctions says he had expected the poster to sell for about $20,000.

The poster advertises a concert in Raleigh where Presley was on the lineup below Hank Snow, Faron Young and other acts.

Moon says both the buyer and the seller prefer to remain anonymous. He says the buyer is from California.

The poster was made by the iconic Hatch Show Print, based in Nashville, Tenn.
