For a moment there was a worried look in DJ Zane Lowe’s eyes when he was interviewing Rhys Ifans at the Amazing Spider-Man premiere in Leicester Square. The suitably green-suited Welshman summed up his character arc as the Lizard as, “’He has a bad day in the office and then everything goes tits up.” You could see Zane’s brain trying to work out if that was acceptable language on Sky Movies at prime time (where the premiere was being broadcast live).
He needn’t have worried. “Tits” was positively polite compared to something else Sky Movies broadcast during the event. There was a twitter feed running along the bottom of the screen, which was clearly being carefully edited for language and positivity (not that there was much room for either after you’d typed out the cramp-inducingly-long hashtag, “#amazingspidermanpremiere”). Not carefully enough, though, it would seem, if repeated messages from Tweeter “f**kyeahemma” were anything to go by.
Watercolour Challenge Of The Week
This gorgeous animation comprises 3,285 aquarelle paintings created by andersramsell, giving some early scenes from Blade Runner weird new look.
