Notable Men With Lacquered Hair

The atmosphere must have been electric. Such iconic American figures, standing in the same room, breathing the same air—but hey, let’s forget the meeting of Elvis Presley and Richard Nixon for a moment. Million Dollar Quartet, the hit Broadway show based on Elvis’ other notable confab, comes to The Smith Center on June 12-17 ($24-$129). It should be fun to watch actors rip through classics such as “Hound Dog” and “Folsom Prison Blues” as they re-create the monumental 1956 recording session of Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis. But the Elvis/Nixon thing would’ve been sexier.

Battleship

By Tribune Media Services

(PG-13) ★★☆☆☆ There will be bigger movies this summer, and better ones and worse ones. But there will not be a dumber movie than Battleship. Ponderous and pandering, shameless and head-slappingly silly, this Navy vs. Aliens epic delivers a few thrills and a few laughs. Taylor Kitsch and Alexander Skarsgard play Navy men trying to stop the alien invasion, and Rihanna, Brooklyn Decker and Liam Neeson are also along for the ride.
