Well, a Big Mac's a Big Mac, but they call it, "Le Big Mac."
- Jared Leto's new documentary Artifact, ostensibly about his group 30 Seconds to Mars, is apparently keyed to another subject. Leto himself says the film, which won the People's Choice documentary award at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, is actually an "attack on the music industry," as it focuses on the group's tumultuous past with Virgin and EMI Records. See for yourself -- it's available on iTunes now.
- Meanwhile, Nine Inch Nails have said, "sayonnara" to their long-time manager Jim Guerinot of Rebel Waltz. The managing group's website still lists How to Destroy Angels--Trent Reznor's side project--as under their brand, but so far, they've not responded to comment on the situation, so even that could be false by now. Rebel Waltz also manages groups such as the Offspring and No Doubt.
- Disney's Frozen rose up in its second week to claim the box-office crown over the weekend, while The Hunger Games: Catching Fire slipped to #2, and Out of the Furnace (starring Christian Bale) debuted at #3. The biggest surprise is probably Vince Vaughn's Delivery Man, which rose a spot in its fifth week to #5.
- Also a surprise? Director Bryan Singer announcing the next X-Men movie...ahead of the release of ANOTHER one. X-Men: Days of Future Past will hit theaters on May 23rd next year, but according to Singer's Twitter account, we'll be seeing X-Men: Apocalypse on May 27th, 2016. Theoretically, this would focus on the first mutant and one of the X-crew's biggest villains in the Marvel comics, Apocalypse himself.
- The second season of Telltale Games' The Walking Dead will be out sometime this month. According to Steam, it'll be out on December 17th, and it's likely it'll hit consoles the same day, but so far, that's unconfirmed.
- Also confirmed over the weekend: this year's reboot of Tomb Raider is going next-gen. By the end of January, you'll be able to pick up Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition for your Xbox One or PS4 -- just don't have a solid date yet. Still, definitely look into it if you haven't already; it's a beautiful game as-is, and a ton of fun to play.
'Til Tuesday, troops...ROCK!
