LCD Soundsystem’s Music Vid Brings All The Feels

Here’s the official music video for LCD Soundsystem’s latest track ‘oh baby’ and it’s simplistic beauty makes it one of this year’s best. It stars Sissy Spacek and David Strathairn as two aged scientists frantically trying to map out an extremely complicated equation for something big. I’ll leave it at that. The video is directed by Rian Johnson, a man who surprisingly didn’t wreck out childhood with his brilliant Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie, proving once more he’s a talent to pay attention to.
 

50 Minutes Of Fallout 76 Gameplay.

Game developer Bethesda are releasing their latest entry in the Fallout gaming franchise next month, but tech website Gamespot managed to record 50 minutes of their early Fallout 76 experience and were kind enough to share it with the world.

The game looks fantastic and in our personal opinion any fears we may have had about the franchise losing it’s allure, now multiplayer has been introduced, dissipated.

Although this title and it’s fresh direction still seems to divide opinion among fans.

Muse’s Latest Music Video Is Rammed with 80s References.

I personally don’t mind Muse as a band but throughout their career they’ve always managed to produce some of the more inventive and entertaining music videos.Their latest for the single Pressure is no exception.

Directed by filmaker Lance Drake it stars the band and legendary actor Terry Crews and is rammed full of pop culture and movie references from the 80s, ranging from the more obvious Back To The Future and Critters to the more obscure like The Exterminator and Fright Night.

It merits a couple of watches to catch them all. Good luck.

Andrea Bocelli’s Duet With His Son Will Give You Chills.

Italian singer Andrea Bocelli has released a new song which has pretty much made most of the internet weep.

Bocelli, who was born blind, has joined forces with his 20 year-old talented son, Matteo Bocelli, to sing a moving duet entitled ‘Fall On Me’, which has accumulated almost three million views on YouTube in only five days.

A man who has never been able to see his own son, singing in perfect harmony with him is probably the most emotional thing you’ll experience on the internet this week.

Mary Poppins Returns Trailer Features Dick Van Dyke

Here’s the first official look at Disney’s forthcoming Mary Poppins sequel, featuring Emily Blunt, Ben Wishaw, Emily Mortimer and a 92 year-old Dick Van Dyke dancing on a table.

Mary Poppins Returns is directed by Rob Marshall, (Chicago, Into The Woods), and is a direct sequel to the 1964 original with Blunt taking over the title role from Julie Andrews. The main plot of the movie rattles along like so:

Set in 1935 London, Jane  and Michael Banks are now grown-up, with Michael still living in the house on Cherry Tree Lane. He lives there with his three children, Annabel, John and Georgie and their housekeeper, Ellen. After Michael’s wife’s death, Mary Poppins comes back to the Banks family with street lamplighter Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda), and eccentric cousin Topsy (Meryl Streep)

The story, which picks up 20 years later, is based upon the Mary Poppins books and as the trailer demonstrates is full of nostalgia, specifically with the return of Dick Van Dyke who plays the son of Mr Dawes Snr, the old bank owner, a character played by Dyke in the original movie. Marshall has kept true to the elements which made Poppins such a classic, opting to use hand drawn animated sequences rather than CGI.

Mary Poppins Returns is scheduled for release on 19th December.
