SONG EXPLODER Arrives as A Netflix Series This October!

Song Exploder is hands down one of the coolest podcasts going, asking musicians to take apart the craft of writing a song – one sample, one instrument, one moment of inspiration at a time.

In a very cool twist, the podcast will become a Netflix television series as well, this October.

And in a perfect move, Hrishikesh Hirway remains as the host for the TV version, too.

Very excited for this.

Song Exploder arrives on Netflix on October 2, 2020.

LOVECRAFT COUNTRY’s Jonathan Majors Signs On For a Major MCU Role

Justin Kroll, Deadline:

After a star-making turn in HBO’s hit series Lovecraft Country, Jonathan Majors is now ready to make his mark in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a big way. Majors has been tapped for one of the lead roles in the next Ant-Man movie opposite Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lily. The studio had no comment, but sources close to the project say he is likely to play the super-villain Kang the Conqueror.

Sources add that like with so many new characters in the MCU, there could be a twist with how the character is featured in future films, but as of now he is likely to be one of the main villains in the next installment in the franchise.

The craziest part of this is, I was literally commenting to my wife last weekend that Majors would — when the time was right, as it’s far too early — make a great replacement as the Black Panther.

Instead, dude is gonna be GODDAMNED KANG THE CONQUEROR.

Wow.

Mondo Drops an Amazing SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD Poster, with A Truly Clever Inspiration

Mondo:

It’s been ten years (TEN!) since writer/director Edgar Wright KO’ed us with his live-action adaptation of SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD. In that time, we haven’t been shy about how much love we have for this precious little movie. Watching it gives us the feeling of doing drugs. Not that we do drugs. Unless Ramona Flowers does drugs, in which case we do them all the time.

Truly though, what Edgar was able to do with Bryan Lee O’Malley’s series of graphic novels is nothing short of a pop culture tour de force. From its completely stacked cast, Edgar’s and Michael Bacall’s brilliant script, Bill Pope’s kinetic cinematography… it all comes together in a film that can now be considered a timeless genre classic.

All that’s to say we’re impossibly excited to have a new poster for SCOTT PILGRIM VS THE WORLD by Matt Ryan Tobin! Matty’s poster celebrates both the girl of Scott’s dreams, Ramona Flowers in her infinite radness, as well another pretty iconic staple of pop culture with the initials “S.P.” This poster is available in three color variants, just like Ramona’s ever-changing hair. She dyes it every week and a half, dudes. Get used to it.

Here are the three hair color variants — Blue, Green and Pink — each limited to 108, and running $50.

Matt Ryan Tobin knocked this out of the park.

You can pick one up at MondoShop.com’s The Drop tomorrow, September 10th, at 11am Central Time.

For those not familiar with the inspiration, it ties to a classic album from one of Scott Pilgrim’s favorite bands.

Finally, a Look at Denis Villeneuve’s DUNE

This looks absolutely astonishing, but at the same time, I can’t help but feel like it has “under appreciated in its own time, cult classic decades later” written all over it.

Maybe I’m wrong.

Dune hits theaters on December 18, 2020.
