Snowden, Blink-182 and Chef's Table
The Best Videos You Missed This Week
Chef’s Table, Season 2
Get ready to feel inadequate in the kitchen. Chef’s Table returns to Netflix on May 27th with its second season.
The first full trailer for Oliver Stone’s Snowden, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Edward Snowden, premiered this week. The film, which dramatizes Snowden’s life before, during and after his leaked troves of NSA documents, is out on September 16 and sure to be controversial.
Blink-182 released the lyric video for “Bored to Death,” their first single since Tom DeLonge, the founding guitarist, left last year to track down UFOs (we think). Matt Skiba, from Alkaline Trio, has replaced DeLonge. The release comes as news hits of a summer tour and a new album, called California, out July 1st.
Directed by Vincent Haycock, this is part music video, part film (along the lines of Beyonce’s Lemonade) that Florence calls “a very personal project that came from a conversation me and Vince had in the Chateau Marmont about a year and a half ago while I was writing ‘How Big How Blue How Beautiful.’ I was talking to him about the record and the car crash of a relationship breakup I was going through. The highs and the lows of love and performance, how out of control I felt, the purgatory of heartbreak, and how I was trying to change and trying to be free. And we decided we would re-tell this story in full.”
The Official Music Video for Famous?
Earlier this month, Aziz Ansari and Eric Wareheim created a music video for “Famous,” a track off of Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo. The duo were in Italy filming Master of None, and filmed themselves worshipping the cuisine to the tune of Yeezy. And, just this week, West made it the official video for his song. Or did he?
Batman: The Killing Joke
Based on the legendary and controversial graphic novel of the same name, comes the first R-rated Batman film. Mark Hamill voices the Joker while Kevin Conroy voices Batman, as they have numerous times before.
The final trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse, directed by Bryan Singer, is here. The film hits theaters on May 27.
