The Rundown

Entertainment Express: Lana Del Ray, Steven Spielberg, Aaliyah, Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett, All the Way

Hello from NYC – where tickets to Kenneth Branagh’s Macbeth at the Park Ave Armory are going for a steal on Stubhub at just $1400.

* Her debut album may have moved 7 million copies worldwide, but Lana Del Rey earned more than her fair share of criticism. No matter, because she stuck it out and releases her third album today – one she worked on with the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach (that guy is everywhere!) With a title inspired by A Clockwork Orange, Ultraviolence has been earning itself positive reviews so far – and for good reason.

* If you were wondering what Steven Spielberg would be doing next (as one does), his latest projects have been given release dates – an untitled Cold War spy thriller, starring Tom Hanks, will come out in October 2015, while the adaptation of Roald Dahl‘s children’s book The BFG will open in July 2016. I almost hadn’t realized he hasn’t made anything since Lincoln because he always seems so busy. 

* Two music biopics have landed lead actors – 17-year-old Disney star Zendaya Coleman will play Aaliyah in a Lifetime pic about the late R&B singer, based on a biography written by Christopher Farley, with the blessing of ‘Aaliyah Productions.’ On the other side of the scale, two classically-trained actors have been cast in the NWA biopic. Director F Gary Gray held an open casting to find Marcus Callender, who’ll play Dr Dre, and Jason Mitchell, who’ll be Eazy-E. Filming is expected to start within the next two months.

* Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett teamed up for the ultimate surprise, visiting the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts in Queens on Monday, where they hosted a master class. The pair, who collaborated for a song on Bennett’s Duets II album, are working on a jazz album together too. No one-hit-wonder, their friendship. [Insert lame joke drum sound here.]

* Following its Tony win last weekend, All the Way, starring Bryan Cranston, who also scored a Tony for his role in the production, has seen an increase in ticket sales, by 30% – the biggest bump experienced by any of the shows that were nominated. Now, about those Macbeth tickets…

    Therefore that’s why this article is great.

  14. Hi, Neat post. There’s a problem with your website in web explorer,
    could test this? IE still is the marketplace chief and a good component to other folks will leave out your great writing because of this problem.

  18. When I originally commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I receive
    4 emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there is an easy method you can remove
    me from that service? Thank you!

  19. I have been surfing on-line more than three hours as of
    late, but I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content material as you did, the web will likely be much more useful than ever before.

  20. Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted
    to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
