It’s really quite simple. According to the new fan-made trailer for The Expendables, men need to turn out in droves to see the film to make sure it triumphs at the box office. It won’t be an easy battle. The enemy is led by Julia Roberts, with the unwavering backing of Oprah Winfrey for all the “sisters-doing-it-for-themselves” and pasta that Eat, Pray, Love embodies. It’s a good thing that The Expendables basically has every famous action star in the world who is still working.

She ain’t no Ronnie Spector, but then again there is nobody like the original Mrs. Phil Spector—not even Amy Winehouse, try as she may—but Phil’s new wife Rachelle has a new video out, and it is a hoot. Look at the sparkle and glitter, listen to the computer enhanced back-up instrumentation, and weep at the missing Wall of Sound now that Phil is behind prison walls.

Radiohead’s drummer Phil Selway has an album approaching in August titled Familial. And kindly enough, he has offered up a free MP3 for anyone who signs up for his mailing list. “By Some Miracle” isn’t even three minutes long, but it’s the quality that counts. It shows that Selway, in addition to keeping time with one of the better rock bands of our time, has a natural knack for songwriting. Hopefully the rest of Familial will measure up.

Several years ago, a bummed-out Rivers Cuomo penned the song “My Day Is Coming” after the USA lost the World Cup. It never made it to a Weezer album, but was released on Alone II, his second official collection of demos in 2008.

Fast forward to 2010, more people in the States are suddenly getting excited about soccer/football, and Cuomo’s band seizes the chance. The new song “Represent” is the unofficial theme song for America’s team.

Is it a worthy sequel to “My Day Is Coming”? Go to Weezer’s official site to hear for yourself. Word of caution: if you think that 21st century Weezer has done nothing but suck eggs, this song will just be more fodder for your argument.

Could that person just be the devil? The trailer, which adopts the more-is-more approach when it comes to sharing narrative information, seems to say so. Devil, adapted from a story by M. Night Shyamalan and directed by John Erick Dowdle (Quarantine), tells the story of a group of people trapped in an office building elevator. Using some disorienting upside-down arial shots, the film looks promising. Could this be M. Night Shyamalan’s redeeming project following the critical slaughter of The Last Airbender? The film premieres in theaters September 17.
