Westworld Soundtrack: Complete Details and Playlists For the Show
Westworld season 3 has come a long way from the player piano at the Mariposa Saloon.

The first season of HBO’s sci-fi series featured haunting Western piano covers of modern hits like Radiohead’s “No Surprises,” Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun,” and the Rolling Stones’ “Paint it Black.” Then in Westworld Season 2, the show brought more of the same energetic saloon piano with Nirvana’s “Heart-Shaped Box” and Wu-Tang Clan’s “C.R.E.A.M.” joining the fray.

Now Westworld season 3 has entered the real world and left the piano covers behind in favor of the real thing. While the energetic first trailer did feature a “Sweet Child O’ Mine” piano cover, Westworld season 3 episode 1 opted for the full versions of several very good, very appropriate songs. Death Grip’s “Bubbles Buried in This Jungle” and Pulp’s “Common People” are the highlights – effectively scoring two very different scenes in “Parce Domine.

Janet McTeer To Star In ‘The President Is Missing’ Pilot At Showtime
Exclusive: Golden Globe, Tony and Olivier Award winner Janet McTeer (Ozark) has been cast as a lead opposite David Oyelowo in The President Is Missing, Showtime’s drama pilot based on the novel by President Bill Clinton and James Patterson from Christopher McQuarrie and Anthony Peckham.

McTeer is a series regular in the upcoming third season of Netflix’s Ozark, which has been completed, after recurring in Season 2. No one would comment, but her casting in The President Is Missing as a main series regular raises questions about her future on Ozark beyond Season 3.

In The President Is Missing pilot, a powerless and politically aimless vice president (Oyelowo) unexpectedly becomes president halfway into his administration’s first term when President Jillian Stroud goes missing, despite his every wish to the contrary. He walks right into a secret, world-threatening crisis, both inside and outside the White House. Attacked by friends and enemies alike,

Songs for Screens: Synchs, Artist Cameos Help Super Bowl Music Market Finish Strong

  • Variety
Beyond the Kansas City Chiefs’ comeback, Super Bowl Liv offered few surprises in the way of ads — the vast majority of which premiered online days prior to the game to maximize the impact and brands’ multi-million dollar spend, which this year soared to as high as a record $5.6 million for 30 seconds of airtime on Fox.

Among the spots that premiered during or hours prior to the game, Jeep’s “Groundhog Day”-themed spot starring Bill Murray featured Warner Music’s “I Got You Babe” in a starring role, as had the movie, while Verizon premiered a teaser of a new Pearl Jam single,“River Cross,” in a subdued spot featuring voiceover from Harrison Ford. Perhaps most unexpectedly, rising rapper Ybn Cordae shared screentime with Martin Scorsese and Jonah Hill in Coke’s 60-second spot for Coca-Cola Energy, which also featured Cordae’s song “Rnp.”

Songs for Screens: Post Malone, Missy Elliott, Lil Nas X Lead Red-Hot Super Bowl Synch Market

  • Variety
With inventory beyond sold-out and the cost of 30-second spots soaring to as high as $5.6 million just to secure ad time, the demand for Super Bowl advertising continues to reach new peaks in an otherwise fractured media marketplace. And music licensing is following suit, with multiple synchs surpassing the $1 million threshold, and an all-star lineup of musicians taking leading on-camera roles in many of the most-anticipated spots.

Music publishers, who are involved in many of the Super Bowl synch negotiations on behalf of songwriters and music copyrights, are reporting healthy volume as of Friday afternoon. Universal Music Publishing Group has secured 12 synchs in national spots that will air post-kickoff, while Sony/Atv has 10, BMG has four and Abkco has one major synch: Pepsi Zero Sugar’s hip-hop remake of the Rolling Stones’ “Paint It Black” with Missy Elliott and H.E.R. Meanwhile, Warner/Chappell, which didn’t provide specific breakouts upon request for comment,

Watch Missy Elliott and H.E.R.’s Pepsi Zero Sugar Super Bowl Commercial
Missy Elliott, who starred with Katy Perry at the 2015 Super Bowl halftime show, returns to the big game via a new Pepsi commercial with H.E.R. Pepsi Zero Sugar debuted a 30-second teaser on Wednesday, which finds the pair performing a segment of the Rolling Stones’ 1966 song “Paint It Black.” While the original song is a morose, minor-key, Eastern-flavored dirge about depression, in the context of the commercial it’s about the soft drink’s trademark matte-black-colored can.

“I’ve been following H.E.R.’s career closely; her talent is undeniable,” said Elliott in a statement. “When the opportunity came up, to not just work together but collaborate and create something all our own, we had to make it happen. I called up [longtime coproducer] Timbaland and [choreographer] Sean Bankhead, I got the best of the best to make sure we brought the noise and did Pepsi Zero Sugar right.”

Pennyworth Review: The Alfred You Always Wanted

If we could ever imagine a backstory for Batman's loyal butler, Alfred Pennyworth, Epix's new series Pennyworth is it.

The series was developed by Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon, the creative team behind Fox's Gotham, and it dives into Alfred Pennyworth's life before Bruce Wayne and Batman.

Set in an alternate 1960s London, Alfie (as he was known back then) has just completed his tour of duty as a special forces soldier in the British Army.

He's working as a bouncer for a local nightclub and plans on opening his own security firm when he suddenly finds himself caught up in a world of espionage and intrigue.

The Rolling Stones and the Mystery of Brian Jones' Death

Tony Sokol Jul 3, 2019

Half a century later, as much mystery surrounds what Brian Jones brought to the Rolling Stones as the circumstances of his death.

It has been 50 years since the Rolling Stones’ Brian Jones drowned in the swimming pool at his country home and his death is still as much a mystery as it was on July 3, 1969. He was 27, the same age as his hero, blues musician Robert Johnson. They were the first recognized members of the "27 Club," artists who died at that age like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Linda Jones, Kurt Cobain, and Amy Winehouse. Johnson and Jones share another honor in the dark mythology of rock and roll. Their circumstances of their deaths are shrouded with unanswered questions. Johnson may have been poisoned. Jones may have been intentionally drowned. Both left legacies which influence artists to this very day. The same can be said of the lingering questions.

Mick Jagger Performs with Rolling Stones First Time Since Heart Surgery
Mick Jagger is unreal, and for that matter, so are all of The Rolling Stones. They performed for the first time since Mick's heart surgery and looked incredible ... but there's something even more shocking. The Stones entertained 60,000 fans Friday night in Chicago at a sold-out Soldier Field concert, and if you closed your eyes it would be hard to hear the difference between circa 1965 and today.

‘The Quiet One’ Film Review: Reticent Rolling Stone Bill Wyman Shares Little of Interest in Documentary

‘The Quiet One’ Film Review: Reticent Rolling Stone Bill Wyman Shares Little of Interest in Documentary
When you think about a Rolling Stones documentary, you might expect sordid details about Mick Jagger’s or Keith Richards’ drug use and rampant sexual escapades, or even the backstory behind the band’s greatest hits such as “Paint It Black” or “Gimme Shelter.” Never would you consider a film that negates all those interesting tidbits to highlight the least flamboyant and popular member of the group, Bill Wyman, the taciturn bass guitarist who documented his nearly 30-year career with the quintet. But that’s what the dull “The Quiet One” does.

In all fairness, there’s already been a number of Rolling Stones films in the past that have offered a more intimate chronicle of the band’s cultural impact and controversies that are at the very least provocative. (“Shine a Light” and “Gimme Shelter” come to mind.) So, it’s not like we need another one of those.

Rolling Stones Backup Singer Bernard Fowler on the Poetry of Mick Jagger
Could Mick Jagger — singer of “Satisfaction,” “Paint It Black,” “Start Me Up” and dozens more songs you know by heart — be underrated as a lyricist? That’s the theory Rolling Stones backup singer Bernard Fowler was working with when he recorded his newest album, Inside Out. “I think that a lot of people who know and love the Rolling Stones miss a lot of important things that are being said,” Fowler tells Rolling Stone. “So I didn’t want to do a cover record; I wanted to do something radically different.

Tina Brown’s Women in the World, IFC Center Team on Film Festival (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Women in the World and the IFC Center are teaming up to create a new kind of film festival that will be dedicated to highlighting female artists and their work. Dubbed 51Fest, the event will take place from July 18-21 in New York City at the IFC Center and the Sva Theatre.

The festival’s name is a nod to the fact that women comprise more than half of the U.S. population. However, that demographic representation isn’t reflected in movies and other forms of media. From 2007 to 2018, less than 5% of directors from the 1,200 top-grossing films were female — that’s a ratio of 22 men to every one woman with a directing credit. With pressure building to become more inclusive, Hollywood did back more movies with female leads. The percentage of films featuring female protagonists rose to 31% in 2018, an increase of seven percentage points, according to a new report from

Amber Tamblyn’s ‘Era of Ignition': Her Transformation From Child Actress to Activist
Amber Tamblyn knew it would take something special to convince her to act again.

A working actress since the age of nine, Tamblyn has spent the last two decades growing up on screen — an upbringing that has made her privy to years of gender discrimination in Hollywood.

In her new book “Era of Ignition: Coming of Age in a Time of Rage and Revolution,” Tamblyn describes being told to lose weight in order to be considered for major roles; being asked to contribute ideas to scripts without receiving credit; and watching her directorial debut “Paint It Black” get rejected from a prominent indie film distributor for no other reason, she believes, but that she is a woman. She also revisits her account of James Woods trying to lure her and a friend to Las Vegas when she was 16, which Woods denies.

Exclusive Photo: Amber Tamblyn for Her New Book ‘Era of Ignition’

Chicago – How does a person reflect on their moment in the world? Actress Amber Tamblyn (“Joan of Arcadia”) found herself in such a point in life. Her new book, “Era of Ignition,” reflects upon her journey and in a macro sense, America’s journey in transition. Joe Arce took an Exclusive Photo of her at an event sponsored by Anderson’s Bookshop.

While in her late twenties, Ms. Tamblyn was facing a downturn in her career, and finding her dream of being a film writer/director more and more elusive. This led to her personal “Era of Ignition,” where a call to action and a personal upheaval paralleled what she felt was the country’s “Era” as well. She also helped to found the “Time’s Up” Movement, the sexual harassment defense fund that percolated after #MeToo. In “Era of Ignition,” she addresses gender inequality through the prism of societal judgement,
