This Week In News
Although summer is winding down, entertainment news is moving full speed ahead. Here are some things you might’ve missed this week.
Your ears will be happy to hear that while Aaron Embry, former pianist for Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, isn’t set to release his debut solo album until Sept. 18, you can listen to “Raven’s Song” now. The Civil Wars’ debut album was certified gold and the band was nominated for two Country Music Awards and won an Americana Music Association award at the event that also honored The Alabama Shakes. Holy Ghost Tent Revival released their video for “Telephone Wire,” and those who were unable to make it to this year’s Newport Folk Festival got to watch an exclusive video of First Aid Kit performing “Emmylou” in the Paste Ruins.
In the cinema world, the full trailer for Steven Spielberg’s highly-anticipated Lincoln was released, Chris Evans dropped some casting news about the upcoming Captain America sequel, James Cameron finally broke his silence about the controversial Titanic ending that inspired its own meme, Elizabeth Olsen revealed exclusively to Paste that she has joined the cast of Spike Lee’s Oldboy remake, and Daniel Craig is confirmed for two more Bond films which, when released, will hopefully improve upon the recent near-record low weekend box office.
On the television front, Lucille 2 and Ann (her?) will both be returning to Arrested Development, as well as Jeff Garlin, who revealed to us exclusively, though is tight-lipped on the exact details. Isla Fisher and Terry Crews are also set to appear in the new season.
