Rosa Salazar to lead Robert Rodriguez and James Camerons Alita: Battle Angel
May 27, 2016 3:34pm | Cosequence Of Sound
James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez have found their leading lady for Alita: Battle Angel. The Maze Runner and Divergent star Rosa Salazar will play the amnesiac cyborg in the manga adaptation.
Cameron, who was originally slated to direct the film, penned the screenplay which follows the titular hero who’s uncovered by a scientist in a dump and brought back to life. She remembers nothing about her past and opts for the bounty hunter life.
Rodriguez hopped on to direct the film last October, leaving Cameron to his 24 Avatar films and a giant “What if?” for cinephiles to debate in the decades to come. Still, Rodriguez needs a solid hit, and having Cameron as a producer only helps.
There’s no release date right now, but Twentieth Century Fox will distribute.
Report: Miles Morales to swing onto big screen in animated Spider-Man film
May 27, 2016 3:28pm | Cosequence Of Sound
When news first broke of the deal between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios that would bring Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a vocal contingent of fans were hoping that it could be an oppurtunity for a non-white Spidey to web up the big screen. In fact, there were even reports that a diversified Peter Parker was considered by Kevin Feige. Of course, the role ultimately went to Tom Holland, whose debut in Captain American: Civil War has been well received.
However, it now appears those calling for a silver screen Spider-Man of a different race may actually get their wish. A report from Heroic Hollywood has it that the animated Spider-Man feature in the works at Sony will indeed put the spotlight on the Miles Morales “Ultimate” version of the character.
For the non-geeks out there, the Ultimate line was a series of comics set in an alternate universe from the central Marvel one. It featured “grittier” re-imaginings of classic characters, and a one point saw the death of Peter Parker. After his passing, a chain of complicated, comic-y events leads to a young half-black, half-Puerto Rican boy named Miles Morales being bitten by a genetically engineered spider. Gaining similar powers to Parker, Morales ends up taking on the mantle of Spider-Man.
The character’s 2011 introduction was not without controversy, but many applauded Marvel’s willing...

A Canadian drone mega mix from the founder of Drone Day
May 27, 2016 3:24pm | Chart Attack
Do you hear that? It's the sound of Canada, droning together as one.
Saturday, May 28 is the third annual Drone Day, with celebrations now taking place in every province and territory of Canada (plus Germany, Bulgaria, Latvia, and England, for good measure). Marie LeBlanc Flanagan, Executive Director of Weird Canada, says the idea was conceived over soup while complaining about the lack of specific days for community celebration.
Drone, more than almost any other style of music, promotes collaboration, inclusivity, and spontaneous celebrations (drones). It's therapeutic and can encourage mental health. It represents oneness, a frequency you can tune into across the country. Here's a short list of events, in record stores and churches, rooftops and alleys. Expect some renegade drones in parks and kitchens, maybe even a few of serendipitous drones at airports and construction sites.
We corresponded with Flanagan about what appeals to her about drone, what it means to her, and then she made us a giant playlist of Canadian music that incorporates drone. Jump in somewhere and ride it out.
Watch TDE newcomer Lance Skiiiwalkers Could It Be video co-directed by Kendrick Lamar
May 27, 2016 3:13pm | Fact Magazine
Top Dog Entertainment showcases their new member.
Top Dawg Entertainment’s latest signee is Lance Skiiiwalker, a singer and producer who’s ‘Could It Be’ has now gotten an eerie music video co-directed by Kendrick Lamar. The video is credited to PANAMÆRA and the little homies, the latter of which have been revealed as Lamar and TDE boss Dave Free.
It begins almost cartoonishly with a women reading under a tree in field being bothered by Skiiiwalker dressed as a rabbit, before moving into darker territory all while never breaking its sun-drenched dreamlike spell.

Bloody hell! Tom Hiddleston in advanced talks for James Bond role
May 27, 2016 3:12pm | Cosequence Of Sound
Well, this is proving rather redundant, no?
Yesterday, word surfaced that 30-year-old actor Jamie Bell was meeting up with a few James Bond producers to talk. About what? Oh, they were probably just shooting the shit about how cool the franchise has been over the past few decades.
Or … they were mulling over the possibility that the Billy Elliot star could take over from Daniel Craig. Which, by the way, you can’t count out, either, as he’s reportedly waiting to hear more about the sequel’s creative elements before officially walking.
Now — oh, how there’s always a “now” — the fine (probably equally frustrated) folks at Birth Movies Death insist that Tom Hiddleston, who was tipped as a suitable replacement last week, is in “advanced talks” to play Bond. Round and round we go!
Choosing words carefully, our source confirms that while talks have indeed taken place, and that Hiddleston very much wants the job (a fact of which hes made no secret), no official offer has been made – yet.
They go on to dissect the news, citing
