Pulling double duty while at Comic-Con, Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn performed with their band Linkin Park at the first-ever mtvU Fandom Awards at Petco Park, and also screened Hahn’s feature film directorial debut Mall at an exclusive Nerd HQ event. After soundcheck for the concert, Collider got the opportunity to talk to the two multi-talented guys for this exclusive interview about branching out to other artistic avenues, kicking off the tour for their recently released album The Hunting Party, deciding which songs to play live, why their fans are important to them. Joe Hahn also talked about making the transition from directing music videos to directing a feature film, why the script for Mall appealed to him, the post-production process, and working with a legend like Vincent D’Onofrio, who also had a hand in writing the script. Check out what they had to say after the jump. »

Ed Sheeran will land his first No. 1 album next week as “X” easily tops the Billboard 200. It’s a good week to be a British singer/songwriter. Following Sheeran at No. 1 (with sales of up to 210,000), Sam Smith’s “In The Lonely Hour” will hold at No. 2 (72,000). The second of four debuts comes in at No. 3, as rapper G-Easy’s “These Things Happen” sells 48,000. Also bowing in the top 10 will be hard rock heavyweights Mastadon with “Once More ‘Round The Sun” at No. 8 (28,000), and Phish, whose “Fuego” swims in at No. 9 (28,000). This week’s No. 1, Lana Del Rey’s “Ultraviolence” will likely drop to No. 4 (45,000). The unsinkable soundtrack to “Frozen” remains afloat at No. 5 (40,000). Miranda Lambert’s “Platinum” falls to No. 6 (30,000) and Linkin Park’s “The Hunting Party,” drops to No. 7(30,000).

Her debut album "Born to Die" made it to No. 2 in January 2012, with 77,000 sold, according to Nielsen Soundscan. British singer-songwriter Sam Smith bows at No. 2 with "In the Lonely Hour," moving 166,000. Sales were driven in part by the popularity of his single "Stay With Me." Linkin Park's new "The Hunting Party" moved enough for No. 3, with 110,000. The vets last rocked the chart in 2012 with "Living Things," which made it to No. 1 with 223,000.

Next week proves to be a big week for debuts in the Billboard 200 top 10 as Lana Del Rey, Sam Smith, and Linkin Park all top the 100,000 mark.

Linkin Park’s latest, “The Hunting Party,” will slide into six figures, selling as many as 110,000 copies in its opening frame to enter at No. 3. Also bowing in the top 10: Willie Nelson’s “Band of Brothers” make a high debut for the troubadour, landing at No. 6 (40,000); Jennifer Lopez’s “A.K.A.” at No. »

Director Richard Shepard makes tonally risky choices. The Matador and The Hunting Party are broad comedies, but they also focus on characters with serious problems. Shepard doesn’t play those personal conflicts as jokes, either. He takes their predicaments very seriously, no matter how goofy his characters may act. These three dramatic comedies, including his latest film, Dom Hemingway, are driven by the loss of a loved one. In the case of Dom Hemingway, the narrative is also propelled by a potbellied, foul mouth, unhinged and egotistical safe-cracker named Dom Hemingway (Jude Law). This is a man who loves his name, himself, and, of course, his cock. You read that last part right. The film opens with Dom discussing what a wonderful piece of equipment he has. Needless to say, he’s a magnetic character who is, maybe not a good person, but someone you root for, if only because he knows how to talk about himself »

Dom Hemingway just got out of jail. Dom wants what he's owed. That may turn out to be a tall order. Featuring a balls-to-the-wall performance by Jude Law, "Dom Hemingway" is the relatively new dramatic thriller from writer/director Richard Shepard. Best known for "The Matador" and "The Hunting Party," Shepard has spent a good amount of time in television recently, directing six episodes of "Girls" and the new Wgn series "Salem." He is a man of many talents, but when he is writing his own work on the big screen, it usually includes a significant amount of dark comedy. And when we say dark, we mean almost crossing the line dark (in the best way possible). After debuting at the Toronto Film Festival last September and earning a release in the UK in November, "Dom Hemingway's" self-destructive antics are heading to U.S. theaters next month.
