While a lot of people were excited by the news, others were . . . somewhat unimpressed. RelatedEverything We Know So Far About Kate Middleton and Prince William's Third Baby BBC news reporter Simon McCoy was live on air when the announcement was made, and he relayed the information in his own unique way. "Now, bearing in mind that they announced that she was pregnant back in September, I'm not sure how much news this really is," he said with a bit of a sarcastic laugh.

Kid Galahad

He sings, he fixes cars, and he takes punches better than De Niro’s Raging Bull. Elvis Presley excels in one of his few ’60s pictures that shows an interest in being a ‘real movie,’ a remake of a boxing saga with entertaining characters and fine direction from noir specialist Phil Karlson. Plus Charles Bronson, Lola Albright and Joan Blackman in standout roles.

'The Neon Demon' is being called everything from 'hot garbage' to 'absolutely beautiful'

'The Neon Demon' is being called everything from 'hot garbage' to 'absolutely beautiful'
Nicholas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon premiered to boos and catcalls at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, and based on everything I know about the Danish director/provocateur (who also directed Drive, Only God Forgives and Bronson), I suspect that’s the reaction he was going for. While it would be inaccurate to claim that critics either love or hate the film (there are a number of “C”-ish reviews in there), it takes a special kind of filmmaker to make a movie that can be deemed “absolutely beautiful” by one critic and “hot garbage” by another. There’s a lot of red and green on the movie’s Metacritic profile, is all I’m saying. In case you’re unfamiliar, here’s the basic premise: aspiring model Jesse (Elle Fanning) moves to Los Angeles (not New York?), where her “youth and vitality are devoured by a group

Alda Events Seizes Shares Of ID&T And Other SFX Entertainment Assets

Nobody expected those wronged by Edm conglomerate SFX Entertainment to pull any punches just because the company is in the middle of chapter 11 bankruptcy restructuring, but the latest developments sure add insult to injury anyways. As a means of collecting a delinquent debt, Dutch promotional company Alda Events has seized commanding shares of SFX Europe, ID&T and Sensation Brazil.

Last month, rumors of ID&T’s relaunch in the Netherlands suggested that SFX would soon relinquish ownership of the company – but not as a result of the same auction process carried out for assets like Beatport, Flavorus and Fame House. However, only close insiders could have imagined that SFX would begrudgingly lose the brand to another one of the companies it had originally sought to acquire.

Bankruptcy court documents uncovered by Dutch magazine Quote reveal that SFX Entertainment had originally agreed to purchase 50% of Alda Events from its owners,

Exclusive Interview: Armin Van Buuren Talks Embracing The Future And His New Album

Armin Van Buuren needs no introduction. As a Grammy nominated artist making records for the last 22 years, the man has been an inseparable part of dance music’s evolution since long before “Edm.” Van Buuren has headlined shows, festivals, and clubs all around the globe, a notable example being last year’s massive Armin Only: Intense tour.

In addition to being crowned DJ Mag’s #1 DJ five times, Armin’s A State Of Trance radio show is widely regarded as the gold standard in dance radio, and just celebrated it’s 733rd episode. Oh, and he also co-founded one of the world’s foremost record labels, Armada Music, alongside Maykel Piron and David Lewis. To say Armin’s had a successful career, is a gross understatement.

Despite being one of the busiest men in dance music, Armin Van Buuren was kind enough to sit and chat with us before his TomorrowWorld 2015 closing performance.

Demis Roussos obituary

Greek singer loved by fans worldwide for his kaftans and 1970s hit Forever and Ever

Few pop artists of the past 50 years achieved such global recognition as Demis Roussos, who has died aged 68. The kaftan-clad, middle-of-the-road crooner was reported to have sold more than 60m records in his long career. Yet despite his huge success, his portly stature and tousled beard attracted criticism and mirth – in Mike Leigh’s 1977 play Abigail’s Party, for instance, the hapless hostess Beverly, played by Alison Steadman, is revealed to be one of his most ardent fans.

One of Roussos’s most enduring signature songs – and one beloved by Beverly – was the title track of his 1973 album Forever and Ever. The album reached No 2 in the UK charts in 1974. It was followed by Happy to Be On an Island in the Sun, a specially written number by David Lewis shrewdly aimed at the British fondness for Mediterranean holidays,

Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon: Day 7 - HitFix Picks

Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon: Day 7 - HitFix Picks
[As you probably already know, starting on Thursday, August 21, Fxx is running the Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, running through all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons," plus "The Simpsons Movie." To aid in your viewing process, Team HitFix is selecting our favorite episodes from each day, plus an episode or two that you can skip and use as a bathroom or nap break.] Day 7 of Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon goes from "Simpsons Tall Tales" (the end of Season 12) through to "The President Wore Pearls" (the beginning of Season 15). I must admit: The "Simpsons" fans on Team HitFix are beginning to drop like flies. Josh Lasser's fandom carried through the Tomacco episode, but no further. David Lewis wrote a blurb here for "Simpsons Tall Tales," the episode he says ended his active support of the show.  Fortunately, Sepinwall and I had a pair of favorites apiece and Katie Hasty also had a preferred episode, so we've got some recommendations for you, plus a couple episodes you can avoid.  [And while I only wrote up two episodes I love, there are at least 10 more that I'll be happy to rewatch if I'm around and another 10 more that I'd enjoy having on in the background. Possibly more. This may be the worst period for "The Simpsons" thus far, but I'll always maintain that middling-to-poor "Simpsons" is still more rewatchable than nearly anything else on TV.] Check out our recommendations for Day 7 and chime in with your own favorites...

Tom Hardy Shoots Scenes For 'Legend'

Tom Hardy looked dapper in a suit and tie on the set of Legend in London on Wednesday.

Tom Hardy Films 'Legend'

In Legend, Hardy plays real life London gangsters the Kray twins – Ronnie and Reggie – who had their heyday during the 50s and 60s. The film, bassed off of John Pearson’s book The Profession of Violence, charts the twins successful in their organized crime empire that began in London’s East End and ends with their fall and eventual imprisonment.

While filming scenes for Legend, Hardy donned a sharp navy blue suit and matching tie with a tie clip, and a crisp white shirt. The actor, who bulked up for the roles of the crime lords, wore his hair slicked back. While filming, Hardy also sports prosthetics to more closely resemble the Krays.

Jerry Saltz: Lucy Dodd’s Painting Intoxicates (and So Do Her Cocktails)

  • Vulture
Jerry Saltz: Lucy Dodd’s Painting Intoxicates (and So Do Her Cocktails)
Think of the paintings of Lucy Dodd as very, very low-relief earthworks along the lines of Robert Smithson’s or Michael Heizer’s. By making massive material processes and natural phenomena almost one-dimensional, Dodd's work widens the senses, makes the cosmic thickening visible, and uncrumples something fundamental. Although just looking at (or sometimes smelling) her large begrimed art is exhilarating enough, I wanted to run my tongue on a couple of the paintings that the David Lewis Gallery checklist says contain leaf extract, wild walnut, yew berries, liquid smoke, and flower essence. Other works include nettles, black lichen, saliva, iron oxide, charcoal, and dog urine. Some have fermenting smells; one seems to be darkening before our eyes. In this way, Dodd's paintings become two-dimensional animals with inbuilt chemistries, going through secret artistic caramelizations and painterly photosynthesis, converting liquids and semisolids into bliss. Mircea Eliade defined shamanism as "techniques of ecstasy.

What Hollywood tells us about war and poverty

World Bank study recommends 51 films using development as a plot device - sometimes at expense of accuracy and complexity

International development is just about at the bottom of the list of things that the average westerner thinks about each day. News organisations are closing their foreign bureaus. One of the big Us television networks turned down more money for global health reporting after a series, entirely funded by grants, led to a dip in viewers. In other words ratings were so bad that the network turned down millions of dollars. It is that tough.

Aside from advocacy efforts like (the much-criticised) Kony 2012 and Oxfam advertisements, how do people learn about the world around them? The answer could be Hollywood. Reporting on Africa does not get much attention in the Us, but a film staring Leonardo DiCaprio about Sierra Leone does.

A film like Blood Diamond, setting aside its problems, brings
