One of Lorde’s popular singles from last year, “Tennis Court,” has already received a number of reworks since its initial release but the most recent, and probably most noteworthy, is a departure and a half from the original.

Lorde certainly needs no introduction at this point.

One of Lorde’s popular singles from last year, “Tennis Court,” has already received a number of reworks since its initial release but the most recent, and probably most noteworthy, is a departure and a half from the original.

Australian producer, Flume, doubled the single’s runtime with all sorts of new (massive) electronic elements leaving Lorde’s lush vocal arrangements as the only truly recognizable aspect. Whereas some remixes hardly stray from the source material, Flume gave the Pure Heroine opener an entirely fresh makeover that will be sure to have fans of Lorde and EDM alike shaking their asses.

Machine Gun Kelly Releases “Sail” Video http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/04/23/machine-gun-kelly-releases-sail-video/ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/04/23/machine-gun-kelly-releases-sail-video/#comments Thu, 24 Apr 2014 01:10:33 +0000 http://www.underthegunreview.net/?p=1111417 Cleveland native Machine Gun Kelly has followed the surprise release of “Sail” by dropping the song’s official music video.

Showcasing his love of the ridiculous, Machine Gun Kelly uses the video for “Sail” to let us in on the beautiful ladies and wild times he experiences on a regular basis. The video follows MGK as he strolls through a crazy neighborhood ripe with parties, hotties, pools with boats, and leather-clad women in devil costumes. Madness is happening in every inch of most frames and Kels remains cool, delivering line after line with kind of smug look you picture when you …

“Sail” was originally released as part of MGK’s birthday celebration. A free stream and download of the track can be found here.

We do not know when Machine Gun Kelly will deliver more new material, but we assume we will see at least a mixtape release before the end of the year. Stay tuned.

Live-Action ‘Barbie’ Comedy Coming To A Theater Near You http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/04/23/live-action-barbie-comedy-coming-to-a-theater-near-you/ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/04/23/live-action-barbie-comedy-coming-to-a-theater-near-you/#comments Thu, 24 Apr 2014 00:36:23 +0000 http://www.underthegunreview.net/?p=1111408 Someone call the band Aqua and let them know a big fat paycheck will [most likely] be on the way soon.

Someone call the band Aqua and let them know a big fat paycheck will [most likely] be on the way soon. Everyone’s favorite plastic doll is coming to the big screen in the not too distant future.

Sony Pictures, Mattel and Parkes + MacDonald/Image Nation announced plans today to bring Barbie to life in a live-action comedy. The film will be written by Jenny Bicks (What a Girl Wants) and produced by husband-and-wife team of Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald. The plot is said to be ‘focused’ on the iconic doll, but no additional information is available at this time. Sony sees the film as a global franchise and plans to go into production by the end of the year.

Given the gigantic success of The Lego Movie it’s a little surprising to see Mattel abandon the world of animation for the big screen debut of Barbie. That said, I would think making this film with the doll at the center of everything would be a far better idea than exploring what would happen if Barbie were a real person, but stranger/worse things have certainly been brought to the big screen. They let Jamie Kennedy star in a sequel to The Mask, after all. If they do decide to make a film set in a world where Barbie is a real person, however, let’s just hope Valeria Lukyanova does not get the part. Unless someone wants to make a racist Barbie movie, which I am entirely ready to see.

Here’s a free idea for Sony: Make Jingle All The Way, only with two parents trying to find the perfect Barbie to make their child love them again. It doesn’t have to be set around the holidays, but I doubt Mattel would want to pass up the opportunity to roll out a line of exclusive holiday/movie-themed toys.

Iggy Azalea Would Appreciate It If You Resisted The Urge To Sexually Assault Her http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/04/23/iggy-azalea-would-appreciate-it-if-you-resisted-the-urge-to-sexually-assault-her/ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/04/23/iggy-azalea-would-appreciate-it-if-you-resisted-the-urge-to-sexually-assault-her/#comments Thu, 24 Apr 2014 00:03:42 +0000 http://www.underthegunreview.net/?p=1111404 “…I still have to have barriers even if it’s like 200 people because people try to finger me.”

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea released her new album yesterday, and during her morning press blitz she stopped by Hot97 studios in New York City for a quick promotional chat. It was the kind of typical radio PR stunt setup you would expect from an artist with major label backing, but things quickly became unique when Iggy dropped a bomb regarding the way certain fans treat her at shows.

“…I still have to have barriers even if it’s like 200 people because people try to finger me.”

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea released her new album yesterday, and during her morning press blitz she stopped by Hot97 studios in New York City for a quick promotional chat. It was the kind of typical radio PR stunt setup you would expect from an artist with major label backing, but things quickly became unique when Iggy dropped a bomb regarding the way certain fans treat her at shows.

“I had to stop [crowdsurfing]…” Azalea said. “I’m only doing like 2000-seaters, but I still have to have barriers even if it’s like 200 people because people try to finger me.” She later added that she has begun wearing tights and two pairs of underwear on stage for protection, which seems to be doing the trick – for now.

As revealing as all of this is, the most interesting tidbit might be that Azalea believes female fans are more often the culprits behind the sexual assault. “Girls will try to do it more than guys ’cause girls think it’s cool, like, ’We both got vaginas, it’s fine.’ Doesn’t make it OK.”

I could not have said it better myself.

Here’s some more of Iggy’s thoughts from the interview:

I will get lurk tweets for like a week before my show, like “I’m about to go to the Iggy Azalea show and I’m going to finger her,” and I’ll see it and be like, please don’t! That’s a violation. I don’t actually like that stuff.

Like, they think I’m real slutty, like “Oh, she got a song called ’Pussy,’ I know what she wants. She wants these two fingers.” Why would I want a stranger to ever finger me? Buying my album for $12 doesn’t mean you get to finger me when I come to your city.

It’s not hard to understand how this image of Azalea has spread throughout pop culture. Interviewers around the world have created entire features on her without ever mentioning her thoughts on songwriting or the industry in general. They see someone willing to expose their sex life to the world and pounce, forgetting those individuals are people as well. Even though they’re journalists they still feed the illusion she is here to be your fantasy instead of an artist.

The New Classic, Iggy’s latest creation, is available now. I know I spent this entire article discussing her image, but the bigger story should be (and is) her talent.

There are over 100 films playing this year, but you and I both know there is no way in hell anyone has the time or physical ability to see them all. So, in an attempt to lessen the frustration caused by pouring over schedules and choosing between conflicting features, we have compiled a list of six films you absolutely must make time to see. These are the films that people will be talking about, studios will be buying, and people will be committing to memory for years to come. Let’s dive in, shall we?



Skeleton Twins


skeleton twins iff boston

Saturday Night Live alums Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader reunite for a sibling journey to reexamine where their lives went wrong after they coincidentally cheat death on the same day. This involves revisiting past relationships and old wounds, as well as recognizing the faults in themselves, and it looks to be told through the painfully relatable yet somehow still hilarious dramatic style that Wiig has built a career on in recent years. Ty Burrell, Luke Wilson, and Kathleen Rose Perkins also star. (Screens April 24 @ Brattle Theater 9:30 PM)James Shotwell



Ping Pong Summer

Following on the thematic heels of last year’s runaway indie favorite The Way Way Back, Ping Pong Summer offers a nostalgic coming of age story that takes place on the shores of the Atlantic ocean during the late 1980s. There’s ping pong, break dancing, and Susan Sarandon acting far more limber than any of her other recent work would lead you to believe. I am going to go out on a limb and guess you can put together how the story ends well before the halfway point in the film, but movies like this are more about the journey than the destination, and for what it’s worth this journey looks like one people will want to take again and again. (Screens April 25 @Somerville Theater 9:30 PM)James Shotwell



Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon


1583

Mike Myers, the man behind Austin Powers and The Love Guru, directs his first documentary about the famed music manager, Shep Gordon. The film follows Shep’s days of excess in the 70s up into his Buddhist teachings/learning today with the help from many celebrities’ accounts of the man, the myth and the legend. Alice Cooper, Michael Douglas, Willie Nelson, Sylvester Stallone and Emeril Lagasse all lend their personal experiences with Shep to develop an image of the man along with archival footage to support those accounts. If this film is as foul-mouthed and hilarious as I have heard from rumblings at other fests, then consider me in a seat with my eyes open and mind attentive. (Screens April 27 @ Sommerville Theater 1:00 PM)Sam Cohen



Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter


13891-1

Have you ever watched a film and been totally convinced that the fictional events that happen are real? No? Well in Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter, Rinko Kikuchi (Pacific Rim) stars as the titular character who is totally convinced that the events that conspired in the seminal Coen Brothers classic Fargo are real. So real that she runs from her mundane life in Tokyo in search for the buried satchel of money that is mentioned in the film all the way in Minnesota. I can imagine that the film will function as a story about a woman outside of her element while also being a study on how obsessions become realities in some cases. Sign me up for what sounds to be one of the weirdest films at the festival this year. (Screens April 27th @ Brattle Theater 6:00 PM)Sam Cohen



The Sacrament

I love a good cult movie. Who doesn’t? For his latest feature, filmmaker Ti West has channeled the spirit of a Vice TV news team for a found footage adventure that looks both engrossing and incredibly unsettling. A small film crew is sent to a remote location to capture a cult on camera and things go horribly awry. Whether or not the final results are as riveting as the trailer suggests remains to be seen, but if the execution is on par with the rest of West’s work we may be looking at an instant ‘shaky cam’ classic. (Screens April 28 @ Brattle Theater 9:45 PM)James Shotwell



The Double

Richard Ayoade, actor in both The Watch and the popular British show The IT Crowd, rounds up a cast including Jesse Eisenberg, Mia Wasikowska, Chris O’Dowd and Sally Hawkins for his trippy sophomore feature film directorial effort. The film follows Eisenberg’s Simon who works as a clerk for a shady government agency and lacks the gut to approach Wasikowska’s Hannah for a date. Things take a turn for the weird when a man named James, who is Simon’s doppelganger, shows up with his infinite charm and throws a wrench into Simon’s life. With visual influences that look very akin to what Terry Gilliam has produced, The Double is a darkly comic tale about Simon becoming more assertive and taking back what is his from his doppelganger. (Screens April 29th @ Coolidge Corner Theater 9:45 PM)Sam Cohen

Motionless In White spent the majority of 2013 on the road, but as the year was winding down they began to open up about plans to enter the studio once more. 2014 arrived and not long after the group tucked themselves away for a three-month creation period that has produced a new record which will arrive this September under the name Reincarnate.

At this time there is no additional information available about Motionless In White’s new album, but given its title I would not be surprised if the band returned to a sound similar to their earlier releases (as opposed to the electronic tendencies of their most recent album). We have no idea when a single will find its way online.

As far as plans for the remainder of the year are concerned, Motionless In White will next be found performing all summer long on the Vans Warped Tour. They will likely take a brief break in August when that run wraps up, but will then hit the road again in time for the album release a month later. We’ll bring additional details as soon as more information becomes available.

This Is Not A Joke: A ‘Peeps’ Movie Is In Development http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/04/23/this-is-not-a-joke-a-peeps-movie-is-in-development/ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/04/23/this-is-not-a-joke-a-peeps-movie-is-in-development/#comments Wed, 23 Apr 2014 16:13:48 +0000 http://www.underthegunreview.net/?p=1111348 Easter may have come and went, but the marshmallow treat most commonly associated with the bunny side of the holiday has one more surprise of its sleeve.

Easter may have come and went, but the marshmallow treat most commonly associated with the bunny side of the holiday has one more surprise of its sleeve.

News broke this morning that development is underway for a film based on the confectionery treats known as Peeps. Yes, Peeps. The sugar-coated, animal-shaped delights that fill Easter baskets, inspire vodka flavors, sit atop donuts, and in recent years even attempted crossing over into other holidays are headed for the big screen in the years to come. God, if you’re out there, now is the time when we need you most.

The one upside to this crazy story is that the man behind the rights option is none other than filmmaker Adam Rifkin (Detroit Rock City). He and his partners Brent Tinter and Brian E. Rochlin acquired the rights from Peeps manufacturer Just Born after the company heard their pitch for a full-length animated feature. The film is being described, perhaps somewhat predictably, as a “Lego Movie-esque family epic.”

There is no specific plot description for the still untitled Peeps film, but we do know the basic premise. According to Deadline, the film will take place the night before a Peeps diorama contest. A single Peep gets misplaced and must make his way through other fantastical dioramas to get back home before the contest judging begins.

Rifkin claims he had the idea for the adventure after witnessing his own niece and nephew build Peeps dioramas for a school project. If you think about it, the idea of Peeps exploring various dioramas is not that different from the plot of Wreck-It Ralph (video game worlds) or The Lego Movie (themed worlds). It may be silly, but it might also work.

There is no release date for the Peeps movie yet, but we are almost certain you can expect an announcement trailer (or more) to be ready in time for Easter 2015.

‘Delivery’ Trailer: Guess Who’s Having Satan’s Baby http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/04/23/delivery-trailer-guess-whos-having-satans-baby/ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/04/23/delivery-trailer-guess-whos-having-satans-baby/#comments Wed, 23 Apr 2014 15:58:11 +0000 http://www.underthegunreview.net/?p=1111341 The film industry is a crazy place where the first person to develop an idea is not always the first person to share that idea with mainstream America.

The film industry is a crazy place where the first person to develop an idea is not always the first person to share that idea with mainstream America. Just because your film was in production first does not guarantee it will see release first. At least, not in a way that will matter once a studio or similarly large competitor rolls out their big(ger) budget version on 3000 screens with a multi-million dollar marketing campaign.

Delivery is a found footage film about a young couple learning their unborn baby is possessed by a malovent spirit. It’s a setup incredibly similar to that of Devil’s Due, which hit theaters in January, but Delivery has production headlines dating back to 2011 (long before Devil’s Due was announced). The film originally made its way onto the festival circuit in June of last year, but it will not hit VOD or limited theatrical release until the end of next month. You may think you know the story, but one look at the trailer and it’s clear Delivery is a beast all its own:

I know it sounds like we hate major studios for rushing their film into theaters before this feature, but there is a decent chance Delivery is only receiving a limited theatrical release because Devil’s Due performed well in January. If we have learned anything about Hollywood in recent years it’s that those working in it will use and abuse any idea until no one wants to pay for it anymore. If that means sequels, fine, but for those who are not directly connected to the source material there are always knockoffs.

The reality show angle in Delivery is one major difference in comparison to Devil’s Due, and I am still unsure whether or not that is for the better. It’s a setup that allows the couple to have interview moments for further insight, as well as an explanation for who is holding the camera in various sequences, but having seen so many others attempt to use this wraparound in the past it feels unlikely Delivery will be the one to find a way to make it work. Still, the editing on the trailer is good enough to pique my interest, and it seems a number of our friends at other sites have had fun experiencing it in the past. We should have a review ready for the film’s official release on May 27, but you can expect additional details about the film to run before that time. Follow UTG on Twitter for updates.

Is Mineral Up To Something? http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/04/23/is-mineral-up-to-something/ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/04/23/is-mineral-up-to-something/#comments Wed, 23 Apr 2014 15:56:58 +0000 http://www.underthegunreview.net/?p=1111342 This is the news post I’ve wanted to write more than anything else this year. If a new website and social media accounts are to be believed, it looks like things are happening with long-defunct emo act Mineral.

The Twitter and Facebook pages have yet to be updated, but the Instagram page features a few shots of instruments and amps that might look familiar to anyone who has spent a lazy afternoon watching Mineral sets on YouTube. While it’s no confirmation, we can only hope that this means a reunion is in the works. It would certainly be the perfect …

This is the news post I’ve wanted to write more than anything else this year. If a new website and social media accounts are to be believed, it looks like things are happening with long-defunct emo act Mineral.

The Twitter and Facebook pages have yet to be updated, but the Instagram page features a few shots of instruments and amps that might look familiar to anyone who has spent a lazy afternoon watching Mineral sets on YouTube. While it’s no confirmation, we can only hope that this means a reunion is in the works. It would certainly be the perfect time, since this week has already seen the announcement of two American Football reunion shows and the first new Sunny Day Real Estate song in over a decade.

In their all-too-short initial run, Mineral released two albums, The Power of Failing and EndSerenading, both of which are emo classics and essential listening for all fans of the genre. Give those a spin today, and stay tuned for more Mineral news as it surfaces.

Lou Ferrigno Will Voice The Hulk In ‘The Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/04/23/lou-ferrigno-will-voice-the-hulk-in-the-avengers-age-of-ultron/ http://www.underthegunreview.net/2014/04/23/lou-ferrigno-will-voice-the-hulk-in-the-avengers-age-of-ultron/#comments Wed, 23 Apr 2014 15:20:27 +0000 http://www.underthegunreview.net/?p=1111336 Lou Ferrigno, legendary actor and original star of The Hulk television series, has confirmed in a new interview that he will be voicing the greener side of Bruce Banner in Marvel’s upcoming film The Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

Lou Ferrigno, legendary actor and original star of The Hulk television series, has confirmed in a new interview that he will be voicing the greener side of Bruce Banner in Marvel’s upcoming film The Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

According to Nuke The Fridge, Ferrigno confirmed his plans to voice The Hulk in the upcoming Avengers sequel while making an appearance at WonderCon in California this past weekend. Ferrigno originally provided grunts and screams for The Avengers, but actor Mark Ruffalo – who plays the part of Bruce Banner – provided the voice for Hulk’s one line of dialogue (“Puny God”).

It’s very cool of Marvel to allow Ferrigno to still be involved with the character he helped bring into the hearts and imaginations of comic fans everywhere, but I am going to guess the amount of dialogue he actually has will remain relatively small. We do not know the entirety of Hulk’s role in the new film, but early concept art revealed him fighting with Black Widow and Tony Stark’s Hulkbuster armor. You can view the images below.

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron will hit theaters in summer 2015.
