Speaking with The Verge, director Neill Blomkamp hammered the final nail into the coffin of his once anticipated sequel. He says this.
"I think it's totally dead, yes. That would be an accurate assumption at this point. It's sad. I spent a long time working on that, and I feel like it was really pretty awesome. But politically, the way it's gone now, and the way that it all is, it's just not going to live."
The true story behind what happened may never come out. But as it were, Ridley Scott decided he
When it comes to choosing his music for any given project, David Ayer has been as meticulous as Quentin Tarantino. And it was said in the past that some of the older songs included in the movie are quite important to the plot in the same way that Star-Lord's Awesome Mix Tape Vol. 1 was to Guardians of the Galaxy. Though the two records have a decidedly different flavor. This one looks to be a bit on the heavier side.
Rock has long been a breeding ground for weirdos. From the crazy prog concept albums of the 70s, to the aggressive post-punk groups of the 80s, to the alt-rock oddballs of the 90s, rock music has never shied away from the surreal or the strange. Perhaps its the genre’s outsider status that has allowed such unusual acts to prosper. Or maybe it just attracts nutters.
There are a few bands, however, that go that little bit further than most into the realms of the insane. They take the genre beyond “a bit bizarre” and into seriously mind-boggling territory. These are bands that simultaneously make audiences utterly confused and completely enthralled. They inspire humour, intrigue and a general response that amounts to “Wtf?!”
The 15 weirdest bands to ever grace a stage are included here. There’s the unclassifiable genre jumpers Ween, the clashing sonic fusions of Praxis and Naked City,
Have you heard about the the anonymous band that everyone believed was The Beatles in disguise? What about the holes in the murder case against Sid Vicious? Did Tupac really foresee his own death? Which bodily fluid is the beverage of choice for the Prince Of Darkness? Is the great Paul McCartney actually… Whisper it… The late Paul McCartney?!
Music culture is defined by its larger than life figures. Gyrating Elvis, egomaniacal Kanye, strutting Jagger, shape-shifting Madonna, androgynous Bowie… They’re all mythologised and built up to be strange, alien characters from another world that we don’t fully understand. It’s no surprise, then, that many of these idols are the focus of a wealth of crazy, creepy stories that border on the unbelievable (and are often a bit gross!).
Sceptical? Of course you are. But then, you haven’t read the compelling evidence that suggests that
As festival season is well underway, we are now at the halfway point of the year and it has proved a fruitful one for rock music. Despite the claims that ‘rock is dead’, the genre has been revitalized somewhat in the mainstream with bands like Royal Blood and Muse bringing their harder flavor of rock to the general public.
This has been further solidified by the recent study on Spotify that suggests that heavy metal is more popular than pop music. Though slightly misleading, it’s clear that both genres still maintain a passionate and loyal fan-base.
2015 has also saw a resurgence of older artists making a return to the center stage with bands like Slayer taking to the metal pulpit once again and the much anticipated album release by Faith No More after eighteen years out of action. It has also been a great year for
The WWE Nxt brand continues to grow as they were announced as part of the Aftershock music festival in Sacramento, California on October 24 & 25. It’s a different kind of venue for WWE’s developmental system that is growing as an alternative WWE show.
The last time WWE Nxt was in Sacramento was during WrestleMania weekend when they drew an impressive crowd of 5,000 people for a Friday night show.
Its interesting to note that in the WWE.com release about the show, they didn’t mention current Nxt champion Kevin Owens. It’s very possible that Owens might only be on the WWE main roster by that point, so that’s why they failed to mention him even though he would be one of the biggest names if he was there.
The graphic they used features current Nxt Champion Sasha Banks, top diva Charlotte and one of the top male wrestlers Finn Balor.
Cm Punk, despite having been signed just a month ago and with no fight lined up until at least the latter half of 2015, was paraded out at Ufc 182 for a Q&A session with fans in attendance in Las Vegas Friday. It was a no-holds barred sort of event with a pair of open mics and Punk speaking relatively candidly.
Despite a fairly drunken audience, pretty much everyone was on their best behavior, although some of the questions ranged from where the Cm in his stage name comes from (Faith No More’s original lead singer) to his time writing for Marvel to whether he would play rock, paper, scissors with a very drunk fan at the end of the Q&A.
All silliness aside, however, Mma fans did learn a little more about Punk’s thought process, where he sees himself going as far as his Ufc career,
Back in 2004, Disney and Pixar were feuding over the rights to certain Pixar created characters, with Disney forming a new company called Circle 7 Animation. The studio assigned a creative team to come up with a concept for Toy Story 3, which was starting to move forward without Pixar's involvement. Over the years, the plot to this proposed sequel has been revealed in bits and pieces. It would have revolved around the Buzz Lightyear toy malfunctioning and being recalled back to Tawain.

Alan Moore and Mitch Jenkins bring a “trilogy of terror” featuring “Act of Faith”, “Jimmy’s End” and “His Heavy Heart”.
Comic book legend and famed adaptation hater Alan Moore teams with renowned photographer Mitch Jenkins to produce the surreal and darkly comedic “trilogy of terror”, Show Pieces. It’s a movie with such a morbid sense of humour and surreality that even The League of Gentleman might think it’s ‘a bit much’.
The three stories are all connected in some fashion, although the third part is a direct sequel to the second leaving the first part to be your “breadcrumbs of clues” as it cameos in the second story. It’s not exactly Pulp Fiction in its intricacies, but it is very subtle.
The reunited Faith No More are rumored to be working on a new album.
In Flames’ eleventh album, Siren Charms, will be released on September 9th via Sony/Red.
Anthrax will release a live DVD/Blu-ray titled Chile On Hell on September 16.
Slash will release his third solo album, World On Fire, on September 16. The first single drops on June 13.
