Watch Phoebe Bridgers Perform With Conor Oberst & Christian Lee Hutson For Save Our Stages Fest

Published

on

Phoebe Bridgers performed as part of the Save Our Stages Fest last night from an empty Troubadour in Los Angeles. The virtual event saw a bunch of artists, including Foo Fighters and Miley Cyrus, playing from empty venues around the country to benefit National Independent Venue Association’s Emergency Relief Fund.

Bridgers has been killing the live performance game this year — SNL when? — and her SOS Fest performance is no different. She brought along her friends and frequent collaborators Conor Oberst and Christian Lee Hutson to perform with her. With the former, she did “Halloween” and their Better Oblivion Community Center song “Dylan Thomas” and with the latter she covered Hutson’s own song “Lose This Number.” She was also joined by the LA songwriter Charlie Hickey and they sang one of his songs together. Bridgers also did “Scott Street,” Kyoto,” and “I Know The End.”

The whole band was wearing Bridgers’ now-signature skeleton costume. Check out the set below.

Donald Trump lashed out at Joe Biden for raising more campaign finances than the president.

The two candidates met in Nashville, Tennessee for the third and final presidential debate on Thursday.

Trump argued that he could ‘raise so much more money’ than Biden, even though Biden has been rocketing past him in fundraising for the election.

‘I could blow away your records,’ Trump said. ‘We don’t need money. We have plenty of money.’

Disaster Thriller Moonfall Brings in Stanley Tucci and John Bradley

Published

By

Beloved actor Stanley Tucci and Game of Thrones alumni John Bradley are the latest recruits to climb aboard the world-saving spacecraft for director Roland Emmerich’s upcoming disaster flick, Moonfall. They join the likes of Halle Berry, Patrick Wilson, and Charlie Plummer, who will all contribute to saving the Earth when the Moon is suddenly knocked out of orbit.

Stanley Tucci has signed on to play Tom Phillips, a wealthy car dealer, who is married to the ex-wife of Brian Harper, played by Patrick Wilson. The actor is one of the most well-liked around, and has become known thanks to roles in the likes of Maid in Manhattan, The Terminal, The Devil Wears Prada, Captain America: The First Avenger, and The Hunger Games franchise.

John Bradley, who best known for his role as Samwell Tarly in the HBO hit series Game of Thrones, will play KC Houseman, who has been described by the filmmakers as “odd and unkempt” in a way that suggests a high level of intelligence and an equally high level of disorganization. He is a genius who correctly predicts that the moon has fallen out of its orbit, thus making the space-obsessed, profoundly unfiltered, and eccentric man one of the most important people on Earth. The role was initially filled by Frozen star Josh Gad, who recently left the project due to a scheduling conflict.

Halle Berry will play a former astronaut who is now working at NASA as an administrator. Her particular importance to the plot comes from a previous space mission that she was involved in, which will somehow be connected to the current moon-falling-from-the-sky situation. Patrick Wilson meanwhile is set to star in the movie as a “disgraced former NASA astronaut whose last mission, which ended in tragedy, holds a clue about the impending catastrophe.” Up-and-coming actor Charlie Plummer, who recently starred in the explosive comedy Spontaneous, will play Wilson’s teenage son.

Moonfall follows our mismatched gang after a mysterious force knocks the Moon from its orbit around Earth and sends it hurtling on a collision course with life as we know it. With mere weeks before impact, and against all odds, a ragtag team launches an impossible last-ditch mission into space, leaving behind everyone they love and risking everything to land on the lunar surface and save our planet from annihilation. Berry will play a NASA astronaut-turned-administrator whose previous space mission holds a clue about an impending catastrophe.

Moonfall has been written by Emmerich alongside 2012 co-writer Harald Kloser and Spenser Cohen. Lionsgate, which partnered with Roland Emmerich on his last picture, the World War II actioner Midway, has North American rights to the project, which is eyeing a production start this fall. Emmerich is producing Moonfall under his Centropolis banner with Kloser producing through his company, Street Entertainment.

So, while Moonfall is unlikely to be an award darling, with such a talented cast and director Roland Emmerich doing what he does best, it should prove to be hugely entertaining. Moonfall is slated to be released theatrically by Lionsgate in North America in 2021. This comes to us courtesy of Deadline.
