Leading contenders for Grammy's Album of the Year

12 September 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The eligibility period for the 2014 Grammy Awards is drawing near: to be considered for the most coveted award of all, album of the year, a record had to come out between Oct. 1, 2013 and Sept. 30, 2014.  A number of acts who would normally be considered leading contenders, including Foo Fighters and Taylor Swift, will miss this year’s cut-off. Below is a list of albums we think will be under heavy consideration as the first-round ballots go out to Grammy voters over the next few weeks. In no particular order: “Beyonce,” Beyonce: I’d say this is a sure thing, but I thought a nod for Justin Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience” was a given last year and it got blanked. Even though it didn’t spawn many radio hits, “Beyonce” loomed large since its surprise December release, not only for the critical hosannahs it received, but for the overall arc of the project’s music, »

Tiff 2014. Correspondences #2

Over Your Dead Body

Dear Fern,

Familiar faces. Indeed, it is so very good to see yours, one year later. The steadfastness of friends through this world and in this industry is for me always a surprise, and always touching, especially in light of the mutability of life and cinema.

Familiar faces...Ventura's: that's another story. Seeing this man, this actor, this figure in Horse Money was like happily visiting an aging relative only to discover that across the span of missed time you can see the creeping effects of dementia. (“Blood drips on the floor but you don’t see the razor,” a widow in the film mourning, angrily remarks.) Standing tall as ever and poised with attempted self-control, nonetheless you see Ventura's long fingers tremble, in the darkness a nosferatu wandering a prison-hospital of memories and sins, psychic and bodily pain. The expressionist shroud in which he wanders confounds time, »

Coldplay's "True Love" Video: Chris Martin Dances in a Sumo Suit, Meets a Stereotype-Busting Ballerina: Watch Here!

22 August 2014 5:35 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Talk about your big love. The usually rather willowy Chris Martin both alludes to the isolating discomfort of being different and not-so-symbolically shows how huge his heart is by donning an inflatable sumo suit in the new music video for Coldplay's "True Love," off of their latest album, Ghost Stories. But Martin actually isn't alone—he has Jessica Lucas, starring opposite him as a lithe ballerina sporting her own sumo suit and is therefore ostracized by her fellow dancers and frequently turned down for gigs. However, the free-spirited, beautiful ballerina doesn't let it get her down, and she's proud to dance to the beat of her own drum, while Martin's more »

Coldplay's new video shows 'True Love' comes in all shapes and sizes

22 August 2014 11:34 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

While Coldplay undoubtedly meant for its video for “True Love” to come across as sweet, I’m not sure it will strike the same tone for everyone. The clip features Chris Martin and a female in inflatable suits, which are mean to represent their being overweight. They get shunned wherever they go. For example, Martin tries to get on the bus to go to a baseball game, but gets turned away because of his size. His employer kicks him in the ass for no apparent reason.The girl gets spurned when she tries out at an audition and people in her row look visibly dismayed when she goes to the ballet (and, of course, gets stuck in her seat). But despite their puffy bodies, they have great dreams, including their love of ballet and their desire to be on stage, so after a performance, Martin’s character dances as he »

20 Terrifying Internet Urban Legends

6 August 2014 2:29 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Parsec Productions

Jan Harold Brunvand’s The Vanishing Hitchhiker is a classic investigation into the modern phenomenon of the urban legend. Ghost stories, apocryphal stories about a friend-of-a-friend, spooky campfire tales – they all follow the tradition of folk stories that used to be told before we actually had, y’know, books and stuff to write things down in. Used to be that famous tales would be passed on with people telling them, which went out the door with the invention of the printing press. That is, until it mutated into the urban legend, the sort of stories you hear on a hiking trip, on the schoolyard, during sleepovers when you’re trying to get your friends to wet themselves.

Brunvand’s book marvels at the way those stories spread nationally, even internationally, through people visiting other towns and sharing them. The Vanishing Hitchhiker came out in 1981, though, and even a »

Sia set to score her first No. 1 album in the U.S. next week

12 July 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sia picked a good week to release her excellent “1000 Forms of Fear.”  The Australian singer/songwriter’s latest album will come in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with a very only 53,000, making it one of the lowest sales tallies ever for a debuting chart topper.  The summer doldrums are in full effect as the sum total of all 10 albums in top 10 will hover around 300,000 or more than 80,000 less than Coldplay sold in its opening week for “Ghost Stories” this spring. Sam Smith’s “In The Lonely Hour” hangs out at No. 2  (45,000). The unsinkable “Frozen” soundtrack will be No. 3 (40,000), while Trey Songz’ current No. 1, “Trigga” and Ed Sheeran’s “X” are too close to call for No. 4. Next come two more debuts: Judas Priest’s “Redeemer of Souls” at No. 6 (32,000) and Dirty Heads’ “Sound Of Change” at No. 7 (24,000). Miranda Lambert’s “Platinum” is No. 8 (22,000), “Now That’s What I Call Music 50” at No. »

The Definitive Foreign Language Horror Films: 40-31

12 July 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Horror is really the only genre that has entries that, while “good,” may not necessarily mean “recommended.” So, how does that affect what is “definitive?” A recent conversation brought up the nightmare of a movie A Serbian Film (great review here from Justine) which, by all accounts, is a horror film. But, while everyone in film circles knows about the film (many have even seen it), I can’t imagine anyone actually recommending it. It’s made impact, sure. But at what cost? The best horror films aren’t simply there to scare and disgust viewers. They’re there to serve as metaphors for other issues, however big or small. But the best ones are those that do it in a way that, while still may scare and disgust you, will also make you think and reevaluate your situation.

12 Terrifying Ghost Stories From Around The World

1 July 2014 12:30 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lionsgate Films

The world is a scary place, and we are definitely afraid of dying. In fact the only thing worse is living, because then the immortal souls of the damned which have been cursed to life in an endless purgatory even when their physical bodies have expired can come and bother us, with all their wailing and tapering off to have no legs. Basically ghosts tell us that everything sucks because when you live you get haunted, and when you die you haunt. There’s no way of winning.

Why are we so obsessed with ghosts? Well, it’s probably got something to do with the ubiquity of ghost stories in Western culture. From the Brown Lady of Raynham Hall to the Amityville Horror, there are ghost stories that everybody knows and is rightfully spooked by. We shouldn’t restrict our terror to our own fair isles and states, »

Chris Martin plays an amiable Pied Piper in Coldplay's new 'A Sky Full of Stars' video: Watch

19 June 2014 1:42 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Chris Martin is a one-man band at the start of the video for “A Sky Full of Stars,”  but he’s far from alone. And by the time the song, the poppiest entry on  the British band’s new set, “Ghost Stories,” ends he has lots of new friends for his adventures. In the “Pied Piper” themed clip, Martin strolls through the streets of Sydney and picks up his band mates and and fellow travelers along the way until he is leading a variable parade through the streets full of colorful umbrellas, balloons and confetti. It’s a simple, fun video that brings even more lightness to the song. Can we talk for a minute about the gun show that Martin brings? Who knew? As he parades around in a wife beater, he’s showing off some serious biceps. Plus, with the harmonica around his neck, an acoustic guitar, and a goofy grin, »

Jack White's new 'Lazaretto' rules album chart with sky-high vinyl sales

18 June 2014 8:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jack White dominated the Billboard 200 album sales chart this week with his new "Lazaretto," taking No. 1 with 138,000 copies sold. Included in that number is the vinyl sales of the set -- 40,000 -- which sets a new record as the largest sales week for a vinyl album since SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991. Pearl Jam's "Vitalogy" previously held that record back in 1994, with 34,000. "Lazaretto" outsold the first week of White's first solo album, 2012's "Blunderbuss," by only a few copies. It also made it to No. 1. Leading up to this triumph, White played a headlining set at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts fest this past weekend in Manchester, Tenn. You can hear the soundboard version of his entire performance here. For the rest of the top tier of the 200, Miranda Lambert's "Platinum" moves No. 1 to No. 2 with (62,000, -65%) the soundtrack to "Frozen" falls No. 2 to No. 3 (50,000, -4%), Brantley Gilbert's "Just As I Am" No. »

Chris Martin Flaunts Bulging Biceps in Sydney—Who Knew He Was So Ripped?!

18 June 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Looking good, Chris Martin! The Coldplay frontman and his bandmates hit the streets of Sydney on Tuesday, where they were snapped filming the new music video for their hit tune "A Sky Full of Stars," the third lead single from their sixth studio album, Ghost Stories. Martin sung and played guitar while sporting a one-man band drum on his back, but all we could notice were his incredibly bulging biceps! The 37-year-old musician flaunted his seriously toned physique in a gray tank top while on set in Newton, flexing his muscles for the hundreds of fans who were hoping to become extras in the video. Seriously, who knew Chris was so ripped?! Flashback to October 2011 when Gwyneth »

Jack White takes 'Lazaretto' to the top of the charts next week

13 June 2014 12:13 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jack White’s second solo album lands exactly where his first solo set did: atop the Billboard 200. “Lazaretto” is set to sell up to 120,000 copies to bow at No. 1 on next week’s album chart. That’s twice as much as nearest competitor, Miranda Lambert’s “Platinum,” which came in at No. 1 this week. White’s tally is only slightly less than the 138,000 copies “Blunderbuss,” sold in its opening week in 2012. Plus, White is also the only new act to enter the Top 10 next week, unless Passenger’s “Whispers” surges and pushes The Black Keys’ “Turn Blue” out of the No. 10 slot. Rounding out the top 10: The “Fault In Our Stars” soundtrack is at No. 3 (50,000), followed closely by the “Frozen” soundtrack at No. 4 (45,000).  Brantley Gilbert’s “Just As I Am” continues to sell well, hanging in at No. 5 (40,000). “Now That’s What I Call Music 50” and Coldplay’s “Ghost Stories »

Miranda Lambert's "Platinum" set for a shiny start on album chart

7 June 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Miranda Lambert’s fifth studio album, “Platinum,” will soar into the top spot on the Billboard 200 next week with sales of up to 180,000. The title will be her first debut at the top of the all-genre chart in a week that also sees Led Zeppelin return to the Top 10. Two weeks ago, both Coldplay and Brantley Gilbert debuted with albums that each sold more than 200,000 albums. Lambert’s “Platinum” is the only one to blow past the 100,000 mark this week.  “Frozen” and Gilbert’s “Just As I Am” are too close to call for the No. 2 spot, with both expected to sell between 50,000-55,000. Coldplay’s “Ghost Stories” will be No. 4 (45,000-50,000). “Now That’s What I Call Music 50” will be at No. 5 (40,000-45,000), with “Now That’s What I Call Country 7” also taking up space in the Top 10, bowing at No. 7 (25,000-28,000). 50 Cent’s “Street King Immortal” comes in at No. »

Coldplay Chills For Second Week At No. 1; Mariah Carey Debuts At No. 3

4 June 2014 1:42 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Coldplay's Ghost Stories holds for a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, while the top debut is Mariah Carey's Me. I Am Mariah . . . The Elusive Chanteuse at No. 3. Ghost Stories sold 83,000 copies in the week ending June 1, according to Nielsen SoundScan. That's down 78 percent from a week ago, when it launched at No. 1 with 383,000, the biggest sales frame for an album this year. Two-week sales for Ghost Stories stand at 466,000, making it the sixth-largest-selling album of 2014. The soundtrack to Frozen continues to rule by far as the year's

Will Coldplay lock Mariah Carey out of the top spot on next week's album chart?

30 May 2014 5:59 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

  A strong debut is proving elusive for Mariah Carey’s new album, “Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse.” As of Friday, it looked like “Chanteuse” will sell no more than 60,000 copies in its first week, making it the superstar’s lowest non-holiday studio album opening week in the Nielsen SoundScan era. The chart closes at midnight on Sunday. By comparison, here last studio album, 2009’s “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel,” sold 168,000 in its first week. If there’s any good news for Carey, it’s that, despite its lackluster sales, “Chanteuse” will likely debut at No. 3, the same rank as “Memoirs,” according to Billboard. Otherwise, Coldplay’s “Ghost Stories” and Brantley Gilbert’s “Just As I Am” sell enough copies to hold at No. 1 (85,000) and No. 2 (65,000). In addition to Carey—who if she surges could bow at No. 2— other debuts in the Top 10 are Austin Mahone’s Ep, “The Secret” at No. »

Coldplay's ‘Ghost Stories’ Scores Biggest Album Release of 2014, Best Since Beyonce

Coldplay's 'Ghost Stories' Starts at No. 1 With Biggest Debut of 2014

28 May 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Coldplay crashes in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with Ghost Stories, collecting its fourth No. 1 album and the biggest sales week of the year. Ghost Stories sold 383,000 copies in the week ending May 25, according to Nielsen SoundScan, easily notching the biggest sales frame of 2014. That bow trumps the previous largest week of 2014, when Eric Church's The Outsiders sold 288,000 in the week ending Feb. 16. Coldplay's start is also the largest week for any album since Beyonce's self-titled album started with 617,000 in the week ending Dec. 15 (as an

Coldplay and Brantley Gilbert add up to big album numbers on next week's chart

25 May 2014 8:41 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As the thermometer heats up, so does the album chart as the top two debuts will both sell more than 200,000 copies. Coldplay’s “Ghost Stories” will likely sell between 370,000 and 390,000 copies, the most of any album this year, to bow at No. 1. In almost any other week, Brantley Gilbert’s “Just As I Am” would have bowed at No. 1 by selling around 200,000 copies, but will have to settle for No. 2 (although it will debut at No. 1 on Billboard Country Albums). Two other debuts will start in the Top 10: Phillip Phillips’ “Behind The Light” and the soundtrack to “The Fault In Our Stars” at No 7 (40,000) and No. 8 (24,000). The rest of the Top 10 features recurrents. Michael Jackson’s “Xscape” drops from No. 2 to No. 3 (85,000) and the “Frozen” soundtrack stays at No. 4 (65,000). “Now 50” will be at No. 5 (55,000) and this week’s No. 1, The Black Keys’ “Turn Blue” drops to No. 6 (50,000). Rascal Flatts’ “Rewind” falls to No. »
