The story has long been told about how he was supposed to direct Marvel’s 2015 hit Ant-Man , with Peyton Reed eventually taking over after Wright departed late in the day. But since then, he’s been developing Baby Driver , a terrific-looking movie that features Ansel Elgort as a getaway driver who relies on his tunes. There’s a doomed-sounding heist in the midst of the film too, and a cast that features Lily James, Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jon Bernthal, and Jamie Foxx, amongst others. You’d take it as a given that an Edgar Wright film would have a killer soundtrack. In the case of Baby Driver , music seems even more integral than usual, and there’s a sporting chance we wont just get one of the best films of the year, but one of the best soundtrack albums too. Baby Driver pulls up in August. 6. Star Wars: Episode VIII A less bold studio might have gone with a safe pair of hands when it comes to writing and directing Star Wars: Episode VIII , so it's refreshing to see a filmmaker like Rian Johnson handed the keys to the (former) Lucas-verse.

99 °C (1.78 °F) warmer than the mid-20th century mean. As GISS Director Gavin Schmidt put it, these findings should silence any doubts about the ongoing nature of Global Warming: “2016 is remarkably the third record year in a row in this series. We dont expect record years every year, but the ongoing long-term warming trend is clear.” The NOAA's findings were similar, with an average temperature of 14.83 °C (58.69 °F) being reported for 2016. This surpassed last year's record by about 0.004 °C ( 0.07 °F), and represents a change of around 0. 94 °C (1.69 F) above the 20th century average. The year began with a boost, thanks to El Nino; and for the eight consecutive months that followed (January to August) the world experienced record temperatures. This represents a consistent change since 2001, where average global temperatures have increased, leading to of the 16 warmest years on record since 1880 in a row.

Richard Taylor, a physicist at the University of Oregon, is one of several academics to take interest in the crop circle phenomenon within recent years. Why? Well, when extremely complex, huge, and perfectly carved out geometrical patters to precision are made, people are going to notice. Taylor believes that crop circle artists are not going to give up their secrets easily. He believes that unknown artists are venturing into the countryside close to your homes to carry out their craft, safe in the knowledge that they are continuing the legacy of the most science-oriented art movement in history. He published those words in an August 2011 edition in Physics World , and it's not hard to see whey he feels this way. These designs are truly jaw dropping. For example, this massive 780-foot (238 meters) crop circle appeared in a remote area (Milk Hill) of Wiltshire, England back in 2001.

5 billion. During the first week at Sundance , we drew 9.5 billion, and in August, when the film hit the theaters, we reached 25 billion. Werners story was indeed worth telling. Developing branded content not riddled with product placements, slogans or campaigns is not an easy thing to pull off. You need to believe your audience is smart enough to value thought-provoking content and give you the credit for developing it. The people we sell to are truly the guardians of the connected world (our initial concept name), and we are certainly happy to celebrate their contributions and work side by side with them to protect and propel our digital world forward. And thankfully, Werner still hasnt made a commercial. Jim McNiel ( @JimMcNiel ) is the global CMO for NetScout Systems and, until recently, a frustrated filmmaker. Lo and Behold won the Arc Award for Best Use of Long-form Nonfiction (film). This story first appeared in the January 16, 2017 issue of Adweek magazine. Click here to subscribe.

.. even if starts as small as a tweet. For Mckesson, in fact, social media initially proved to be the way of getting involved. Back in August 2014 after the tragic murder of Michael Brown , he wanted to go to Ferguson, Missouri, and merely participate in the peaceful response for a weekend. He had no grand plans of country-wide organizing at the time; then the protests spanned 300 days: “I drove nine hours for a weekend, but I guess it's been a long weekend,” Mckesson said of his work since.
