Tom Hanks And Ron Howard Are Back, Taking On Dan Brown’s ‘Inferno’

You haven’t seen the last of Robert Langdon on the silver screen. It was announced today that Tom Hanks and Ron Howard will reprise their roles of star and director, in Inferno, the third installment of the Da Vinci Code series.

For those keeping track, Dan Brown’s 2013 novel Inferno is the fourth novel to detail the life of Dr. Robert Langdon, while the film adaptation will make up the tail end of a trilogy following the prequel film Angels and Demons (the first Robert Langdon novel) and skipping the third book, The Lost Symbol, entirely. There’s no …

The World Is A Beautiful Place… Will Release A New EP In October

The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die have announced a new EP. Bearing the title Between Bodies and boasting eight tracks (quite the EP), it’s due on October 7 from Broken World Media.

Between Bodies follows last year’s debut full-length Whenever, If Ever, a Topshelf Records release that did fairly well for itself by becoming the label’s first to chart on the Billboard 200.

A week and a half after the EP’s release, the band will be hitting the road with support from The Hotelier. Brush up on those dates …

The KickDrums Announces EP, Releases “Atonement” Remix

Brooklyn producer The KickDrums released his most recent project, Thinking Out Loud, in late 2013, but fortunately for our ears, he’s already returned with a handful of new renditions of tracks from that record. Entitled the Echoes EP, KickDrums’ collaboration with OG Mattress finds the pairing of musical minds remixing cuts from Thinking Out Loud via the addition of multiple rappers.

The project’s debut single, a remix of “Atonement” featuring LaShaun Ellis, premiered via HypeTrak today, and after some careful listening sessions, it’s safe to say the retooling definitely does its source material justice. Follow the jump to …

Lionsgate Picks Up ‘Maggie,’ A Film Full of Zombies, Fatherly Love, and Schwarzenegger

Per Joblo, Lionsgate has picked up the zombie anti-thriller Maggie. Taking a peak at the synopsis, the film looks to take a microscope to something usually only given a few quick seconds in zombie and infection flicks: the transformation.

A young woman becomes infected – likely by bite, but perhaps by blood spray or a bad burger. Her father takes her home to be with her family – this is clearly a slower transformation than that of some genre contributions – and we watch their final moments together. The focus is on the father and his relationship with …

November Man Movie Review

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The November Man’ Is Mean, Dull, And Entirely Forgettable

Film: The November Man
Starring: Pierce Brosnan
Directed by: Roger Donaldson

There is a difference between violent storytelling with an inherent sense of fun and violence for the sake of violence. November Man is more often than not the latter, and that is only the start of its many problems.

Making his first return to the world of spies and the lives they can never out-run for the first time in over a decade, Pierce Brosnan leads a cast of relative nobodies as an aging spy who thought his professional life was behind him. He walked away from training and …

Buke and Gase

Buke and Gase Share Single, Announce Tour

Buke and Gase are more than an experimental duo; they’re inventors. Brooklyn musicians Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez made their instruments–the “toebourine” and “buke,” for example–by hand. Not only that, but their music stretches boundaries farther than we’re used to, all while maintaining a catchy-enough riff to keep us following along on their absurd path. It’s time to get our shoes back on for a hike, because the two have announced both a new single called “Seam Esteem” and a tour around the East Coast, Canada, and Midwest.

According to the press release, they wanted to raise their glass ceiling …

Billy Idol Shares Details Regarding New Album and Single

Information regarding the new Billy Idol record has been popping up all over the place the last few months.

Well, the man has finally broken the silence and given us almost everything we could possibly want. Billy Idol will release Kings and Queens of the Underground on October 21 on his own label, BFI Records. He has also given us the lead single off the album, “Can’t Break Me Down.”

The song is fantastic. It features the classic punk sound that we would all expect from Idol. But there’s this relevant, magical touch that he adds to this song that …

REVIEW: Code Orange – ‘I Am King’

Artist: Code Orange
Album: I Am King
Genre: Hardcore
Label: Deathwish Inc.

Earlier this year, Code Orange dropped the ‘Kids’ off somewhere and said, “It’s just us now. Let’s get fucking crazy.”

Not that the band’s 2012 debut, Love is Love // Return to Dust, wasn’t balls to the wall bonkers, but I Am King demonstrates new levels of blatant belligerence and no holds barred intensity from the Pittsburgh-based four-piece, who have clearly matured beyond just a name change. This new release summons a raging, angst-ridden being from within the listener who then, with no regard for the safety …

JJ V

JJ Share Video for “Inner Light”

After the release of their third album, V, JJ has given us another beautifully crafted video to coincide with the song “Inner Light.”

The song itself is majestic and very spiritual in its delivery. But let’s get to the video. Throughout, we follow a child fully mounted in Native American attire, walking through the forest, performing rituals, dancing, swimming, etc. All alone. It’s very haunting, and almost weird, which is not shocking from this group. It’s filmed like a movie and fits really well with the track that itself is very accepting and soft.

Check out the video below, …
