The Rundown

Entertainment Express: Telluride, Prada, The Ramones, James Murphy, Ghostbusters

Hello from New York City – it would have been Michael Jackson’s 56th birthday today, so no doubt there’ll be a lot of pics and memories of the legend shared a little more than usual today.

* The intimate and exclusive Telluride Film Festival kicks off in Colorado today – debuting films like Jon Stewart’s directorial debut, Rosewater, recent Emmy winner Benedict Cumberbatch’ Nazi-code breaking turn in The Imitation Game and – a film I absolutely cannot wait to see - Wild based on the Cheryl Strayed novel, starring Reese Witherspoon.

* The Venice Film Festival, meanwhile, continues, and Prada has released its first app while there. Miuccia Prada, with the help of filmmaker Miranda July, created an app that enlists the help of strangers to deliver messages to their recipients. I don’t have enough space on my phone to download it as I’m intrigued to see how the other person reacts when asked to relay the message – complete with actions and directions – but it sounds like a way to either make new friends or irritate strangers.

* Martin Scorsese has tackled the music stories of George Harrison and The Rolling Stones, so it’s no surprise that he’ll turn to the Ramones next. There are a number of projects in the works, planned for the 40th anniversary of the Ramones, and according to Billboard, a movie directed by Scorsese is just one of them.

* James Murphy, with all his fingers in various music pies, will be watching a lot of the US Open this season, to record the sounds of all those balls being hit and create songs. The LCD Soundsystem main man says about 400 hours of music will be created at the end of it all. Wonder if the grunts will feature too?

* In the cannon of anniversaries worth celebrating is this – Ghostbusters turns 30. With wary eyes fixed on the third installment, which will be helmed by Bridesmaids‘ Paul Feig, we get the opportunity to see the film in cinemas again or pick up the re-release.
