The Rundown

Entertainment Express: Pussy Riot, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Bruno Mars, Divergent, House of Cards

* Two members of Russia’s punk performance art group Pussy Riot are in the US for the first time, ahead of Amnesty International’s Bringing Human Rights Home concert in Brooklyn tonight. At a press conference held at the Amnesty offices in New York on Tuesday, the women said they’re starting their own human rights organization in Russia, and that activism from around the world helped get them through prison.

* Broadway will dim the lights in tribute to 3-time Tony-award-nominee Philip Seymour Hoffman, and the theatre company he helped build, Labyrinth Theatre Company, will hold a vigil on Wednesday night too. Meanwhile, 4 people involved in heroin dealing have been arrested – police haven’t confirmed in they are connected to the actor’s death or not.

* Bruno Mars is smiling – well, he’s probably doing a lot more than that, following the news that this past weekend’s Super Bowl, including his half-time performance was the most watched event in US TV history. Over 115 million. And that’s even though the Red Hot Chili Peppers didn’t plug in.

* There’s a new Divergent trailer out and to promote it, Shailene Woodley and Theo James zip-lined onto the Jimmy Kimmel show. With all the wacky weather out there at the moment, how else is one expected to travel?

* Netflix has renewed its first original series, House of Cards for a third season, ahead of the Season 2 premiere in a few days’ time.

Oh, and for our enjoyment, Benedict Cumberbatch stopped by Sesame Street.
