Fortnite developer Epic Games continues to make power plays in its quest to become a true superpower. In recent months, it’s locked down more high-profile exclusives for the Epic Games Store, introduced an uncanny new character-creation tool , and now bought one of the hottest studios on the market in Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout developer Mediatonic.

The cowboy. Photo: Burak Cingi/Redferns Mitski warning us about a man? It must be International Women’s Month. Mitski blessed us with a new track today, “The Baddy Man.” It’s the first single from her her forthcoming soundtrack to the graphic novel This Is Where We Fall by Chris Miskiewicz and Vincent Kings. The sci-fi series deals with science, faith, and that innately human belief in something bigger than ourselves. For us, that’s Mitski. Her voice booms over the track’s country-western flair as she warns about the Baddy Man “creeping and a-crawling.” “What those dead men say that they do / Will never be the absolute truth / ’Cause the Baddy Man is creeping through the alleys of your mind,” she croons over twangy strings. In 2020, Mitski dropped “Cop Car,” her first solo release since her 2018 album, Be the Cowboy . Mitski’s soundtrack is available for preorder on vinyl and cassette along with the graphic novel, out May 5. Per Pitchfork , there are currently no … [Read more...] about Mitski Is the Cowboy in Country-Tinged Track ‘The Baddy Man’
Saturday AM Update: Updated with NYC B.O. data Even with three new wide releases at this weekend’s box office, and New York City finally reopening, numbers still aren’t at pre-pandemic levels, but there’s a lot of drama going on. Let’s start with Disney ’s theatrical day and date Disney+ release of animated pic Raya and the Last Dragon which looks to be leading the weekend with a studio-reported $2.5M Friday and an industry weekend estimate of $8.3M at 2,045 theaters. These numbers are slightly less than the $3M Friday and $9M-$10M we were hearing about, and they’re definitely less than the $14.1M that Warner Bros’ same day HBO Max release of Tom & Jerry posted last weekend. Raya ‘s opening weekend is also less than Croods: A New Age ‘s 3-day opening over its Thanksgiving stretch which posted $9.7M. And that’s definitely because Disney did not reach a deal with No. 3 chain Cinemark, as we first told you (thus, losing around 250 bookings), Harkins, and … [Read more...] about ‘Raya And The Last Dragon’ Debuting To $8M As Pic Hits Disney+ & NYC Reopens: Why The Industry Is Greatly Concerned
