But how does it measure up to musicals of the past? And just how much of a challenge was it for its lead actors? Sky's Entertainment correspondent Katie Spencer has been finding out - and has been tinklling the ivories. It is pretty strange that we keep running into each other.

Eric Heisserer is having a hell of a year. The writer hit the big time with Arrival , which he produced and penned. Heisserer won both the Writer's Guild of America and Critics' Choice Awards for Best Adapted Screenplay, and may have a pretty good Oscar night too. SEE ALSO: One of the most underrated heroes in comics is back. Here's a first look Arrival started with a tale called Story of Your Life , written by Ted Chiang, which packed an emotional punch.

Some members of the press, ourselves included, have had Nintendo's Switch console for a few days now in advance of its March 3 release. And some members of the press, ourselves not included, have reported issues with the left Joy-Con controller. Left shark would be (even more) ashamed if this was 2015. SEE ALSO: All the ways I played with Nintendo's new Switch console today The left Joy-Con controller, these other early Switch owners report, seems to occasionally register movement with a delay. Though it was initially suspected to be a de-sync issue, closer inspection by YouTube channel GameXplain shows that it could more likely be an occlusion issue depending on how the controller is gripped or positioned. And actually, in that case, it's an issue that could affect both controllers. Read more... More about Joy Con , Nintendo Switch , Nintendo , Gaming , and Entertainment

When they revealed the Switch, Nintendo also revealed the portable console's possible battery lifespan. They estimated somewhere between two and a half to six hours of battery life, depending on settings and what you're running, of course. YouTube channel GameXplain put that assessment to the test, pushing the console's settings to the max (brightness, sound, wifi on) and letting The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild run on the Switch until the console entered sleep mode. Their console survived for two hours and twenty eight minutes, right up to Nintendo's lowest estimation. So if you find yourself stuck on a plane itching to play the new Zelda, don't forget to turn your screen's brightness down first. Read more...

Former president Barack Obama can not run again for president in the U.S., but that isnt stopping a group of French fans who are trying to get him to run in their upcoming election. Paris has been canvassed with “Obama17signs, which urge people to visit a website to sign a petition for the former U.S. president to run. According to the website, Obama is their choice "because he has the best resume in the world for the job.” The site also alludes to the rising popularity of right-wing parties in France. "At a time when France is about to vote massively for the extreme right, we can still give a lesson of democracy to the planet by electing a French president, a foreigner," according to the website, which is in French.
