Scenes From The Suburbs (Trailer)

Being extra lazy and not giving much input on posts. Check this out though, its the trailer to Arcade Fire and Spike Jonze 30-minute documentary which is out now!

Watch it here.

Director Spike Jonze teams up with Arcade Fire to create a 30 minute short film inspired by their critically acclaimed album, The Suburbs, and its themes of war and coming of age in suburbia.

Co-written by Jonze & Arcade Fire’s Win Butler & Will Butler, this companion piece to the album follows the narrator, living in a suburban dystopia, trying to piece together fragmented memories from when he was a teenager, and his experiences with his friends as they grow apart.

ESPN Fab Five Docu Sets Network Ratings Record

ESPN’s “30 for 30” documentary series was must-watch television in 2010. When it came out that more documentaries were going to be made in 2011 following a similar style, people naturally got excited. When it came out that the first 2011 documentary would focus on the Fab Five, people got really excited.

Promotion for the Fab Five documentary kicked into high gear in February. Reviews started coming out last week that it was, like most of the “30 for 30” docs, must-see TV. When it finally aired on Sunday night after the NCAA basketball tournament selection show, viewers realized that the hype was there for a reason — it was that good. The documentary provided a history lesson on the Fab Five, both on and off the basketball court, and gave us a glimpse into their world in the early 90s.

Between the excitement for the movie, the positive reviews, the hype and the very good time slot, the Fab Five documentary ended up garnering 2.7 million viewers. This made it the most viewed documentary in ESPN history, which includes all 30 of the docs aired last year. That is a pretty remarkable achievement, and it shows that even two decades later, the Fab Five still has drawing power.
