The Associated Press is really into Nine Inch Nails' "cover of Johnny Cash's 'Hurt'"

3 September 2013 12:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Someone—or, more likely, several people—at the Associated Press made an embarrassing mistake this weekend when writing up Nine Inch Nails’ headlining set at Philadelphia’s Made In America festival. The uncredited writer of the review notes that “Nin closed the night with a slow and smoky cover of Johnny Cash’s ‘Hurt,’ which earned nonstop cheers from the crowd,” including a "Yeah, Trent!" from a burly man in the audience. That’s probably an apt description, except for, you know, “Hurt” being written and originally performed by Nin, and it was Cash who did its well-received cover shortly »

Nine Inch Nails runs through new material at Lollapalooza

3 August 2013 11:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Nine Inch Nails played their first U.S. show since 2009 at Chicago's Lollapalooza Festival last night, unveiling some new material from their upcoming album "Hesitation Marks." Before launching into familiar oldies like "Closer," "Terrible Lie," "Wish," "March of the Pigs" and "Hurt," Trent Reznor led the band through a batch of new tunes including "Find My Way," "Copy of A/Sanctified," and "Come Back Haunted." The new tunes were first heard at least week's shows in Japan and South Korea.  Here's "Come Back Haunted" at Lolla: The upcoming album's first single, "Come Back Haunted" was turned into a creepy David Lynch-directed video a few weeks »

Watch Jay-z’s Performance Art Film Picasso Baby, Directed by Mark Romanek

3 August 2013 9:34 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Never one to go the traditional route, Jay-z has taken a rather fascinating approach to the video for his latest single, “Picasso Baby.”  The hip-hop artist collaborated with director Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go, One Hour Photo) to put together a piece of performance art for the track, and the result is a 10-minute short film called Picasso Baby that debuted on HBO Friday night.  Jay-z and Romanek set the piece up at Pace Gallery in New York City with the intention of seeing what would happen if Jay-z performed specifically to a single person instead of an arena full of fans.  The result is a highly entertaining piece of work with appearances by Judd Apatow, Michael K. Williams, Taraji P. Henson, Alan Cumming, Adam Driver, Jim Jarmusch, Jemima Kirke, and many more. Of course, Romanek has plenty of experience crafting memorable music videos, as he’s the man »

Director Mark Romanek Talks One Hour Photo Blu-ray, His Vision for The Wolfman, Cinderlla, His Desire to Work on a Larger Canvas, and More

7 May 2013 11:25 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Mark Romanek is an incredibly talented filmmaker from whom we have seen far too little.  The director first gained notice for his work in the world of music videos, helming Nine Inch Nails’ “Closer”, Michael and Janet Jackson’s “Scream”, and most notably Johnny Cash’s hauntingly beautiful “Hurt.” Then in 2002, Romanek directed his second feature, the psychological thriller One Hour Photo starring Robin Williams.  The film was met with both critical and commercial success, and is now getting its long-deserved HD treatment with a Blu-ray transfer that was supervised by Romanek himself. I recently had the opportunity to speak with Romanek on the phone in anticipation of the Blu-ray release for One Hour Photo (available now), and during the course of our conversation, the Never Let Me Go filmmaker talked about what it was like to revisit one of his films so extensively a decade after its release, the Blu-ray’s extras, »

Interview: Mark Romanek Talks Making 'One Hour Photo,' What Happened With 'Cinderella' & What Might Be Up Next

7 May 2013 10:01 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Even before Mark Romanek yelled "Action!" on "One Hour Photo," his debut feature film, he was already a trailblazer behind the camera. The filmmaker had made a name for himself as a music video director, helming iconic spots for Lenny Kravitz ("Are You Gonna Go My Way"), Nine Inch Nails ("Closer"), Madonna ("Bedtime Stories"), Michael Jackson ("Scream"), Fiona Apple ("Criminal"), Johnny Cash ("Hurt") and much, much more. His videos were bold and found Romanek able to easily switch genres musically and stylistically without batting an eye, delivering evocative spots that both defined the director and the artists he worked with. But when it came to his feature film, he largely kept the flashy stylization at bay. "One Hour Photo," starring Robin Williams playing a photo developer at a mega chain who develops an obsession with his favorite customers, is an exercise in control, with the thrills and dread coming as »

'The Following' star James Purefoy takes the EW Pop Culture Personality Test (and proves he's not so scary after all) -- Video

1 April 2013 9:11 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

To know how convincing he is as serial killer Joe Carroll on Fox’s The Following, all James Purefoy has to do is walk down the street. “I got out of a car the other day, and I was talking to somebody, and as I turned, I bumped into this middle-aged lady, and she made the sound of a small dog being kicked. She didn’t scream, she yelped at me,” he says. “It turned out that she’d been watching the show the night before and thinking about it, and then suddenly, poof, there I was.”

Even better: “There »

The Brandon Lee Retrospective Triple Bill - Showdown in Little Tokyo, Rapid Fire and The Crow

1 April 2013 5:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe takes in a Brandon Lee retrospective triple bill of Showdown in Little Tokyo, Rapid Fire and The Crow...

Today (March 31st) marks 20 years since the untimely death of Brandon Lee. The Lee legacy on cinema is no small matter. Bruce Lee of course remains more iconic and more influential, having changed the face of martial arts on screen. That should not take away the fact that Brandon Lee was taken away from the cinema world on the cusp of breaking really big. He had it all - the looks, the physique, the fighting ability. What also set him apart from many of his action contemporaries too was the fact he also had charisma in abundance and a lot of raw potential as an actor too.

Who know how Brandon Lee's career might have transpired, or what he may have achieved, but it would be safe to say, »
