‘I, Tonya’ Filmmakers Rejected Indie Rock Darling Sufjan Stevens’ ‘Tonya Harding’ Song

‘I, Tonya’ Filmmakers Rejected Indie Rock Darling Sufjan Stevens’ ‘Tonya Harding’ Song
Indie-rock hero Sufjan Stevens is effectively running against himself in the Oscars’ best original song category, with two prominently featured and equally respected tunes in “Call Me By Your Name” (“Mystery of Love,” heard mid-film, and “Visions of Gideon,” over the end credits). But if he’d had his way, he might have had three songs in contention.

When Stevens announced this week that he was issuing a new single, “Tonya Harding,” almost simultaneous with the release of the film “I, Tonya,” plenty of fans figured the song was partnered with the movie. That was his intent, actually, at one point, even though he’d wanted to write an ode to the figure skater since 1991. “It’s not at all related to the new biopic,” he wrote on his website, before parenthetically adding, “I sent it to the music supervisors but they couldn’t find a way to use it.”

Paul McCartney’s Unreleased Christmas Gift For His Beatles Bandmates Resurfaces On YouTube After 52 Years

52 years after it was first produced, a rare piece of Beatles history is available on YouTube. A Christmas compilation Paul McCartney created for his bandmates has been uploaded online.

The compilation is titled Unforgettable, and it is believed that only three copies of it were ever printed: one each for John, George, and Ringo, who received it on acetate discs as Christmas presents in 1965. On the album, McCartney plays the role of DJ, introducing each of the compiled songs and adding in some improv of his own. "And so in this program, Unforgettable, we hope that you are not gonna forget us and are gonna join in," McCartney riffs in his introduction.

Unforgettable takes its name from the Nat King Cole number that leads it off. Other songs featured in the compilation include "I Get Around" by The Beach Boys and "Don't Be Cruel" by Elvis Presley.

Mega Man 11 announced, first trailer

Ryan Lambie Dec 5, 2017

Capcom has finally announced Mega Man 11 - and it looks rather good. Here's the first trailer...

Update: Capcom's Mega Man 30th anniversary stream kicked off last night at 7pm UK time, and as expected, it contained some good news for fans of the Blue Bomber. For the first time since 2010, we'll be getting a main-line sequel to the classic action-platformer series, with Mega Man 11 due out some time next year.

See related Vikings season 5 episodes 1 & 2 review: The Departed Vikings has been renewed for season 6

The sequel will mark a slight change of direction, too, with the 8-bit, pixel aesthetic of Mega Man 9 and 10 giving way to an anime-style, hand-drawn look that brings it closer to something like Street Fighter V's use of 2.5D.

Otherwise, the platforming action's the same as always, with fast-paced run-and-gun levels giving way to rock-hard-looking bosses. Mega Man fans will notice plenty of nods to the past,

Eight Days a Week: The Beatles' Touring History in 8 Concerts
For those of us who weren’t lucky enough to attend a Beatles concert in the 1960s, Ron Howard’s Eight Days a Week just might be the next best thing. The 2016 documentary traces the band’s rise from a cramped and dank cellar in Liverpool to record breaking television appearances, jam packed stadiums, and—ultimately—rock immortality. Lovingly assembled through rare and often unseen fan home movie footage, Howard’s film also draws on more familiar material—restored to the highest echelons of HD— and new interviews with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. All told, it’s a joyous

The dancers were in Blackpool this week – so who rocked the Tower Ballroom, and who took the first bus home?

Jonnie and Oti take a final turn around the dancefloor to “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling”. Bit dusty in here.

Kick off is at 6.50pm, so join me then for another sparkle-filled Saturday night. Thanks for joining in, and have a great week! Hx

7.58pm GMT

All the judges vote for Debbie and Giovanni, which means Jonnie And Oti are leaving the Strictly dancefloor.

He thanks the judges for judging him as an equal, and hopes the next person with a disability who performs on Strictly can tuck their bum under better than him.

Ringo Starr Spreads the Love at New York City’s Beacon Theater—With a Little Help from Radiohead’s Phil Selway
The holiday season is nearly upon us, and anyone with a yen to perform should seriously consider asking Santa for a fraction of Ringo Starr‘s musicianship, stamina and stage presence. The 77-year-old rock icon commanded the stage at Manhattan’s opulent Beacon Theater Wednesday night, spoiling a sold-out crowd of New Yorkers with over two hours of peace, love and music.

He was flanked by the longest incarnation of his ever-evolving All-Starr Band, featuring luminaries like power-pop wizard Todd Rundgren, Toto guitar great Steve Lukather, Richard Page of Mr. Mister, and Gregg Rolie, who recently reunited with his former colleagues in Santana.

‘The Lion King’ Turns 20: How the Disney Musical Became One of Broadway’s Best (Exclusive)
The house lights dim, the sun rises on its first performance, and a powerful voice belts out: “Nants ingonyama bagithi Baba,” the first lyrics of “Circle of Life.” Lindiwe Dlamini, a member of the ensemble dressed in a white dress, holding African bird puppets in either hand with another on her head, nervously waits in the wings as she readies to take the stage in the opening number of Disney’s Broadway adaptation of The Lion King, the 1994 animated hit film about a lion cub who overcomes adversity and accepts responsibility for his pride and land to become king of the jungle.

“You didn’t know how the audience was going to receive it, [but] the energy was beyond belief,” Dlamini recalls to Et. The actress was 29 years old when she was cast in The Lion King, which opened on Broadway at the New Amsterdam Theatre on Nov. 13, 1997. The show later transferred to the Minskoff Theatre in 2006, where

Definitive Proof That Rey and Luke Are Related in The Last Jedi?

Definitive Proof That Rey and Luke Are Related in The Last Jedi?
Mark Hamill, the master of social media is at it again, but this time he may very well be hinting that Luke Skywalker and Rey are really related in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It's also important to note that Mark Hamill has been trolling Star Wars fan theorists for the past handful of months, but he's really stepped up his game this time around and in the process of fun and games, he may have let something slip about Luke and Rey's relationship. Adam Driver may or may not have let it slip out that Rey is a princess in a recent interview, leading many to believe that Kylo Ren and Rey are siblings and therefore, related to Luke Skywalker.

Mark Hamill took to his favorite social media tool, Twitter, to post an image of Rey and Luke. The top picture shows Luke in The Empire Strikes Back fighting
