The official trailer for the new The Three Stooges, a film starring Sean Hayes, Larry David, Will Sasso and Chris Diamantopoulos, as well as Jennifer Hudson, Sofia Vergara, Jane Lynch and Nicole Snooki Polizzi, is now out and drawing some heat. What do you think?
This weeks biggest releases include Amy Winehouse‘s posthumous album Lioness: Hidden Treasures, Trent Reznor & Karen O’s cover of “Immigrant Song” for David Fincher‘s new film The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and the music video for Foster The People’s “Call It What You Want.”
The Week’s Best Album: Amy Winehouse – “Our Day Will Come”
Ever since the untimely death of Amy Winehouse this past July, there’s been a lot of buzz around the album she was working on.
That album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures was released this week to both critical and commercial success. The album is projected to top the charts upon it’s release.
Winehouse, a notoriously tortured soul, seemingly poured everything she had left into this album. Eerily, it’s as if she knew her time was fleeting.
The Week’s Best Single: Karen O with Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross
In the way that Amy took the sounds from a different time and updated them, Trent Reznor and Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs took a song from a different time, Led Zepplin’s “Immigrant Song” and updated it for David Fincher’s up and coming film The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
The song is a much harder, electronic look at one of the most notable rocks songs ever recorded. Only the Nine Inch Nails’ Reznor (who won an Oscar for his work on Fincher’s The Social Network) could have executed the task with this much respect, his work giving the track a smashing individuality. Tahe integrity of the song is preserved but the places to which Reznor takes his version are sexy and industrial, readying us for the pace, tempo and feel of the movie.
This little taste leaves me desperate and excited to hear what Reznor has in store for the entire soundtrack.
The Week’s Best Music Video: Foster The People – “Call It What You Want”
“Call It What You Want” solidifies Foster The People‘s claim on the kingdom of catchy hooks. But it’s their precocious music videos that make them stand out as artists. “Call It What You Want” was directed by Ace Norton but the surreal adventure could have easily come from the mind of famed music video director Michel Gondry.
The whole video is abstract and absurd, and there are some visually stunning scenes that make you have to go back for a re-watch. Could anyone ever tire of a group of gorgeous girls in white t-shirts (that spell out Foster) whose shootings splatter blue blood?
This isn’t the band’s first time working with Norton, he was also behind the camera for their “Helena Beats” music video which is equally awesome and trippy.
The Dalai Lama’s new book, “Beyond Religion: Ethics for a Whole World” hit stands this week. While there was a time when the Dalai Lama was merely being introduced to the US through Hollywood-types like Richard Gere, the Dalai’s super star status as a spiritual celebrity has since been well and truly established.
Taking on the task of breathing the words of wisdom down a microphone onto a book on tape/cd/mp3/kindle-file is Charlie Sheen ‘s dad, otherwise known as “The West Wing” president and “Apocalypse Now”-great Martin Sheen.
Audible.com is releasing the Sheen version of the book, and has kindly provided the interview with activist and actor Mr. Sheen below.
Here’s the official Lionsgate trailer for “Cabin in the Woods” starring Thor’s Chris Hemsworth, Six Feet Under & Let Me In’s Oscar-nominated actor Richard Jenkins and The West Wing’s Bradley Whitford.
The film isn’t out until April, 2012, but when something is co-written and produced by Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), it’s never too early to sneak a peek!
Jonah Hill stars as Noah Jaybird in this film about a babysitting session gone wrong, or horribly right, depending on your disposition.
Directed by David Gordon Green, the film stars Jonah Hill (“Superbad,” “Cyrus”), Sam Rockwell (“Conviction,” “Moon”), JB Smoove (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”) and Ari Graynor (“Lucky,” “Fringe”). The clip by Smoove is particularly funny, “know what I mean?” …Read More
