Hear Grandaddy’s Sprawling New Song ‘Bison on the Plains’
Grandaddy have unveiled their sprawling new song “Bison on the Plains,” the band’s first new music since releasing their reunion album Last Place in March 2017.

The synth-heavy song was inspired by the Cars’ 1984 single “Drive,” frontman Jason Lytle said in a statement. “Setting out with the intent of replicating the ‘feel and vibe’ of the song ‘Drive’ which is one of my favorite Cars songs …I got a little of the way into “Bison on the Plains” (Botp) and realized I had failed,” Lytle said.

Albert Brooks Once Pranked Oscar Isaac by Screwing With His ‘Star Wars’ Offer

Albert Brooks Once Pranked Oscar Isaac by Screwing With His ‘Star Wars’ Offer
The day Oscar Isaac learned J.J. Abrams wanted to meet him in Paris about a secretive role in his upcoming blockbuster, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” the actor was hard at work filming “A Most Violent Year.” Directed by J.C. Chandor, the crime drama cast Isaac opposite Jessica Chastain and Albert Brooks. When Brooks found out about the pending offer, the industry veteran decided to pull Isaac’s leg with a phone prank.

“I actually still have the voice message saved,” Isaac recently told GQ. “I remember in between shooting I got a message from an unknown caller, and it was a voice. It was like, ‘Hey Oscar, it’s J.J. Ya know, you don’t have to come all the way out to Paris. What’re you gonna do, play a droid? You don’t need to be doing that…actually, this is Albert Brooks.'”

(You can check out Eddie Redmayne explaining his weird Jupiter Ascending voice as part of that same series here). When it comes to Bryan Singer's film, Isaac said, “Apocalypse … That was excruciating." He went on to describe: "I didn’t know when I said yes that …

Review: Muse Get Lost in the Eighties on ‘Simulation Theory’

The first LP from Muse since their 2015 album Drones is a throwback to the first seven years of the Eighties. The tom-toms are cavernous like a Jan Hammer or Phil Collins production on the Miami Vice soundtrack. The dystopian, technophobic action movie narrative seems in the same vein as films like The Running Man and The Terminator. A band that’s logged nearly 20 years in the major label rock sphere, Muse mixed Radiohead’s alt-rock shirt-pullers with Queen’s triumphant heft in epic jams about theoretical physics, systems science and environmental philosophy.

Carey Mulligan (‘Wildlife’): Reactions to her character show how we hold women to different standards than men [Exclusive Video Interview]

Carey Mulligan (‘Wildlife’): Reactions to her character show how we hold women to different standards than men [Exclusive Video Interview]
Carey Mulligan notices that there have been “quite strong reactions to my character” in “Wildlife,” “principally because she’s not doing the right thing. She’s not being a great mom, and she’s not being the perfect housewife.” This shows how “we hold women up differently to the way we hold men. It’s been a reminder that a lot of the things that run through ‘Wildlife’ are still pretty relevant today.” Watch our exclusive video interview with Mulligan above.

BossLogic Imagines Brie Larson as Samus in the Metroid Movie

BossLogic Imagines Brie Larson as Samus in the Metroid Movie
Artist BossLogic has created a new piece that shows us what Brie Larson could look like as Samus Aran in the Metroid movie. Earlier this week, the Captain Marvel star shared her epic Zero Suit Samus Halloween costume, and fans of the gaming series went crazy. Many assumed that the actress was just wearing the costume for fun, but when asked about it, Larson admitted that she wanted to make a Metroid movie, which made fans even more excited.

While there has not been anything official announced about Brie Larson starring as Samus Aran in a possible Metroid movie, artist BossLogic, who is on vacation in Hawaii, decided to whip up a quick rendering of what Larson could look like on the big screen. Both shots of the actress are taken from the side profile, with the first showing hints of the Zero Suit, and the second showing the iconic

How ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Recreated 1985’s Live Aid

How ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Recreated 1985’s Live Aid
Bohemian Rhapsody” is bookended with one of Queen’s most iconic performances: a 20-minute set at Wembley Stadium outside of London for 1985’s Live Aid concert. Featuring some of the band’s biggest hits, including “Radio Ga Ga,” “We Are The Champions,” “We Will Rock You” and “Bohemian Rhapsody,” recreating the scale of that record-breaking event — a sold-out crowd of 72,000 and a global TV audience of many millions — proved an equally enormous task for the filmmakers.

“The film starts with Freddie arriving at the stadium and there’s this long tracking shot of him from behind, as he walks from his dressing room through the backstage area and up to the stage, and pulls the curtain aside to look at the enormous crowd all waiting for them, and then we cut to the whole back story,” says Dp Newton Thomas Sigel. “So it sets up the dramatic arc of the whole film,

Brie Larson Is Metroid's Samus for Halloween, Now She Wants to Do the Movie

Brie Larson Is Metroid's Samus for Halloween, Now She Wants to Do the Movie
Brie Larson's awesome Samus Halloween costume has fans wanting her to star in a big screen adaptation of Metroid. As it turns out, Brie Larson wants to make the movie as well. Halloween 2018 has come and gone, but Larson's Zero Suit Samus Aran costume is still being talked about, sparking rumors that the actress is taking on another female hero role, this time in the iconic Nintendo franchise. Larson had the look down perfectly, even down to the blonde hair that Samus has in the video game series. A Metroid movie has been talked about for years, but nothing has ever come into fruition.

Brie Larson is currently Captain Marvel for the McU, so she more than likely doesn't have the time to play Samus Aran in a Metroid film. With that being said, it seems that the actress is willing to works some overtime. When a fan asked

Bold Films’ Walters Talks About Forces Changing Indie Market

  • Variety
Producer/financier Bold Films made its mark in recent years with critical and commercial indie hits like “Whiplash,” “Drive” and “Nightcrawler.” Its co-founders — Russian-born entrepreneur, chairman and backer Michel Litvak and CEO Gary Michael Walters — hope to achieve similar results with the just-released art-house drama “Colette,” pictured above, and A24’s recent pickup “Vox Lux” (out Dec. 7). But after some low-budget misfires and downsizing, the company is looking to take bigger gambles. Variety spoke with Walters to discuss Bold’s new direction.

How are you planning to change the company’s approach?

We’ll be looking into getting domestic distribution earlier in the process, and creating more commercial projects that are going to be attractive as wide releases. We’ll give them some edge, but I think of it as the “Mary Poppins” principle: you need a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down. More accessible films, maybe with more action components,

Captain Marvel Star Brie Larson Was Samus From Metroid For Halloween; Should She Play The Character in a Movie?

It looks like Brie Larson is a fan of Metroid. The Captain Marvel actress ended up dressing up as the character Samus from the classic game wearing the popular Zero Suit. She looks great and it made me wonder if she should play the character in a live action film.

I personally wouldn’t mind seeing Larson take on the role of Samus! She’s a great actress that would easily fit the part.

Ryan Gosling movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘La La Land,’ ‘Blue Valentine,’ ‘Half Nelson’

  • Gold Derby
Full disclosure. Many years ago, I worked at the Disney Channel at the time producers were casting a revival of the kids show “The Mickey Mouse Club.” I don’t know who did the selection of the cast members, but among the then-unknown pre-teens they chose were Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Keri Russell and a gawky 13 year-old Canadian kid named Ryan Gosling. What a cast! All have gone on to great success as adults, but Gosling especially chose his own path to become one of the most respected film actors working today.

In the course of such films as “Half Nelson,” “Blue Valentine, ” and “The Big Short,” Gosling has been nominated for two Academy Awards and four Screen Actors Guild Awards. He has also been nominated for five Golden Globe Awards, which includes a win for his performance in the Damien Chazelle musical “La La Land.”

‘First Man’ Film Review: Ryan Gosling and Damien Chazelle Slip the Surly Bonds of Earth

‘First Man’ Film Review: Ryan Gosling and Damien Chazelle Slip the Surly Bonds of Earth
Those of us born in the late 1960s and beyond have always taken the Moon landing as a great accomplishment, yes, but also as something of a fait accompli. In his dynamic follow-up to “La La Land,” director Damien Chazelle reminds us that space exploration has always been risky and terrifying, with men closing themselves inside tiny metal machines that were created by other men, held together by rivets, and prone to a million mishaps.

From the heart-in-your-throat cold open, in which pilot Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) takes a craft above the atmosphere but then struggles to bring it back down to Earth, to Armstrong’s eventual “giant leap for mankind,” “First Man” depicts the great accomplishments of Nasa as huge gambles; like the best historical dramas, the film creates suspense over events whose outcome we already know. The U.S. government might have been driven by its desire not to

Drake Decides ‘Don’t Matter To Me’ Is His Next Single, Despite Better Options
Drake and Michael Jackson are heading (back) to radio. Yesterday, October 2, Republic Records announced they will start promoting “Don’t Matter To Me,” featuring Michael Jackson, to pop, adult pop and rhythmic stations next week, via Billboard. The Scorpion cut was originally supposed to be a single this summer. When Graham’s fifth studio album dropped on June 29, the Toronto rapper’s team pushed the track — which features unreleased Jackson vocals — to pop radio programmers, who spun it 102 times, according to Mediabase. However, the song was quickly superseded by “In

Bryan Cranston Is Responsible for His Shocking ‘Drive’ Death, Pitched Idea to Refn After Not Liking Original Scene

Bryan Cranston Is Responsible for His Shocking ‘Drive’ Death, Pitched Idea to Refn After Not Liking Original Scene
Bryan Cranston is best known for his television roles on “Malcolm in the Middle” and “Breaking Bad,” but his movie career does include one of the more beloved indies of the last decade: Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Drive.” During Cranston’s appearance at the Tribeca TV Festival, the actor spoke about his love of collaborating with directors and used “Drive” as an example of one time his voice was heard and changed the script.

“In the original script, my character and Albert Brooks’ character actually liked each other. They were fond of each other and I thought that was a great problem to have,” Cranston said. “What if your task is you have to kill someone that you really like — that’s odd. And in the script, it had him come up behind me with a garroting wire and he chokes and cuts me to death. I thought, there’s something wrong with this.
