OK, as far as promo videos go, this is just a picture of Bobby Womack in an astronaut suit - but then again, it's BOBBY WOMACK IN AN ASTRONAUT SUIT. Damon Albarn produced album out on XL in June

The latest from @BlueTongueFilms writer/director team David Michôd and Joel Edgerton is an outback thriller set 10 years after an apocalyptic event, due to premiere at Cannes. Guy Pearce, Robert Pattinson and Scoot McNairy star.
Like the idea of Susan Sarandon as a boozy Mr Miyagi here.
Clint keeps us guessing. After watching this trailer I feel like I've seen the movie already.
Arty new promo for The Horrors track "So Now You Know" ... undermined by the singer showing up.
First trailer for Sundance thriller Cold In July - good slice of genre-blending Southern-fried noir here. Michael C Hall, Sam Shepard and Don Johnson all on great form.
New thriller from David Fincher, based on the Gillian Flynn novel, with Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike.
New indie sci-fi from Mike Cahill, director of the excellent Another Earth, starring Michael Pitt, Brit Marling, Astrid Bergés-Frisbey, Steven (Walking Dead) Yeun and Archie (Good Wife) Panjabi. Heard mixed reports from Sundance, but looking forward to seeing it.
Another interesting doc from the team at Kauri Multimedia

James Gandolfini's final film is a Dennis Lehane (Gone Baby Gone, Mystic River) thriller with Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace.
Fish on Wheels. Via Alfred P Sloan.
This album is on repeat all day in Chimp Towers at the moment.
Fascinating Library of Congress talk from Ian MacKaye via Jenkem, including his insightful thoughts on skateboarding and how he got into punk. Well worth a watch.
Great list of movie commentaries on YouTube, courtesy of Cinephilia. The Conversation is always a favourite, plus plenty of Scorsese. Much as I love the idea of these things, the motivation to watch them is never there when you've just watched the actual film ... then I never get back to them.
First look at the FrightFest fave.
McBean overheard Jaffe drunkenly bragging in a backyard about her state of the art 80's VHS camera. Ambulance City will mark the first time they've worked together since 1431 while serving drinks at Joan of Arc's execution.
Inspired by Swedish Erotica, Cpl. Klinger, and totes non-poser aspirations.
More Walt in the next Godzilla trailer.
First single from The Horrors' fourth album Luminous, out on May 5th.
Looks like Venkman and Ray might be Ghostbusting Spengler if there's ever another Ghostbusters movie - as co-writer and star Harold Ramis has passed away, aged 69. He also directed all-time classic Groundhog Day, National Lampoon's Vacation and Caddyshack ... plus less-than-classic Multiplicity.

A new entry into Tom Hardy's funny-voice repertoire - Locke.
Greatest film never made?
Don't panic, it's not a remake. I just stumbled across this original teaser for Back To The Future.
Great article about the lighting upgrade the streets of Los Angeles have been undergoing over the last couple of years ... and how it will change the look of LA's most photographed city forever. LED lights are replacing the distinctive orange hue of sodium vapour bulbs, making for a clean, white, modern look.
The first track from the new Pink Mountaintops album has landed. Check out North Hollywood Microwaves at Soundcloud. The Album Get Back arrives on April 28th.
(PS if anyone spots a bottle of Pink Mountainhops in London, let us know)
The future of the internet, circa 1981.
Shocked to hear of the death of Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Dude, that had not occured to us.
If you like Mike from Neighbours, you'll love this trailer for The Rover, from David Michod, directoor of the spectacular Aussie crime pic Animal Kingdom.
This trailer for the new Terry Gilliam sci-fi feels a bit cartoon wacky central, but ever since Brazil and 12 Monkeys I'll give him a go. Stars Christoph Waltz, Ben Wishaw, Melanie Thierry and David Thewlis, out Mar 14 in the UK.
Looking forward to this one: starts Jan 12 HBO, sometime in Feb on Sky Atlantic.
Gareth "Monsters" Edwards is manning the controls for this new city-smash showdown, with Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen and Ken Watanabe among the puny humans running around in Godzilla's wake.
Pop culture's not sport, so these aren't in order (and some of them are probably in the "consumed this year" category).

Video for the single Faded Glory below.
Of course! Looking to tap that Dealey Plaza/X-Men fan crossover market, this trailer for the upcoming X-Men time travelganza puts Magneto up on the grassy knoll back in 1963. More at The Bent Bullet.
Decent bonus round from Gravity - Jonas Cuarón's short featuring the other side of Sandra Bullock's radio conversation.
